Terry: “I still want to carry on playing”

by -

Chelsea defender John Terry has revealed he could leave Stamford Bridge when his contract expires in June 2017.

The 35-year-old told the Daily Star“I still want to play for a couple more years, whether that is here at Chelsea or somewhere abroad, I don’t know. It’s an option,” 

“I am contracted to Chelsea for this season and then will see after that. I’m doing my coaching badges. I don’t know if I want to be a coach but I want to do my badges and pass.”

Chelsea are currently top of Premier League table and will battle in the title race until the end of the season.

“When I see other teams win it, it makes me feel angry, it makes me feel sick, you feel like you have let everyone down, – he added - I am where I am today because of that hunger. There were better players when I was younger but I wanted it more”. 

“It’s still there today, at the age of 35. You miss that feeling of being the champion, being the best. Nothing can ever replace that. As a player, at the end of the season, when you see another team win it, I can’t even watch it, it hurts”.

Then Terry ended: “This is why I still want to carry on playing because that hunger is still there to be the best to win trophies for my football club. I have been at Chelsea for a long time and want to give the fans something to cheer about at the end of the season.”
