Personally, I can’t put my thoughts together as regards this news of former England and Chelsea captain, John Terry retiring from his football career after twenty-two years as a Blue. Fifteen major trophies. One of the finest careers of any Englishman in the history of the game.
The 37-year-old defender made the news known via Instagram with a message of gratitude to his family and fans for their support through the 23-year span of his successful career.
“After 23 incredible years as a footballer,” he shared, “I have decided now is the right time for me to retire from playing.”
Chelsea FC also shared a post via Twitter celebrating the renowned player.
