Terry To Leave Chelsea At The End Of The Season
Chelsea captain John Terry will be leaving the club at the end of the 2015/2016 season as he refused to renew his contract.
After the blues F.A Cup win against M.K Dons yesterday January 31st, the defender released a statement thus:
“To be honest, I was in last week before the Arsenal game and it’s [the contract] not going to be extended.
It’s my last run in the FA Cup so I want to make it a good one. It’s a big season for me and I want to push on – not just in this competition but in the Premier League as well. I knew before the Arsenal game so mentally I’ve kind of accepted it. We just have to move on.
They said that when the new manager comes in, things might change. It’s a no at the minute. I needed to know now like I have done every January and sometimes it takes a couple of months to get done. Unfortunately it was a no. It’s not going to be a fairytale ending, I’m not going to retire at Chelsea.
It’s going to be elsewhere which took me a couple of days to get over. But like I say, I knew before the Arsenal game and my performance isn’t going to change – the way I train, what I give for the club. I want to give everything and finish on a high, on 100 per cent good terms with the club.”
The 35 year old has won with the club four premier league titles, four F.A Cups and the UEFA Champions League in 2012.
