Former Chelsea and England captain John Terry has announced his playing days are over at the age of 37.
The defender, who spent last season with Aston Villa after 22 years at Stamford Bridge, had been without a club since leaving Villa Park in the summer and is now expected to pursue a career in management.
Terry, who joined Chelsea at the age of 14, went on to become captain of the club under Jose Mourinho, winning five Premier League titles, four FA Cups, three League Cups, one UEFA Europa League and one UEFA Champions League title before finally departing in 2017.
He announced his decision to retire via his Instagram page, saying that “after 23 incredible years” it was now the “right time” to hang up his boots.
EDEN HAZARD WAS KEEN TO PLAY DOWN TALK OF CHELSEA WINNING THE PREMIER LEAGUE THIS SEASON.
Eden Hazard believes it is too early to discuss Chelsea’s Premier League title chances
Hazard scored one goal and created another in a 3-0 win at Southampton as Chelsea leapfrogged Manchester City and Liverpool,
Hazard is enjoying a rich vein of form while the ‘Blues’ are much improved under Maurizio Sarri this term, but he is not getting carried away just yet.
“It’s too early to be thinking about the title – we know it is tough to win,” Hazard told ‘Sky Sports’. “But it is good to be up there.
“We’ll maybe watch Liverpool and Manchester City on the bus.”
On how he is finding life under Sarri, the forward added: “We are enjoying playing well and scoring goals.
“The first half was not so easy [at Southampton]. They missed big chances and then we have had a bit of luck for our first goal, but we controlled the match in the second half.
“I don’t know if I’ve played better – I’m just playing good football because we are playing good football. I want to keep doing it and keep everyone happy.”
Ross Barkley impressed in Chelsea’s latest win, scoring his first goal for the club, and Hazard was pleased to see his team-mate’s hard work in training rewarded.
“[Barkley] is playing well, he scored and made an assist,” Hazard said. “He is doing well and working hard on the training ground.”
