John Terry signs a new contract for Chelsea

The long awaited news. John Terry has finally signed a one year contract with the club, ending the rumours about him leaving. The most successful captain in the club’s history and our fourth highest appearance maker, the 2014/15 season will be Terry’s 17th in the first team. He made his debut in October 1998 as a 17-year-old having joined the club as a youth trainee at the age of 14. The news came up just yesterday after the mirror started reporting that Terry had signed a contract with the club. The fee is still not stated as to whether the captain has taken a pay cut or has had his wages increased but the best news he will be still be playing for us.

Speaking after completing his new deal, Terry said: ‘I’m delighted to have signed an extension to my contract with Chelsea taking me into my 20th year with the club.

 

‘I’d like to thank the fans and club for their continued support, and the Manager who was instrumental for me the last season.’

 

Chief Executive Ron Gourlay added: ‘We are very pleased John, who is an undoubted Chelsea legend, will continue to lead the team next season, as he has done for so many years with unrivalled achievement.

 

‘Both Chelsea FC and John have been clear throughout that we wanted his outstanding career at the club to continue, and it is important the matter has been concluded so soon after the end of the season, allowing us to look forward to and plan for 2014/15.’

 

The 33-year-old has played 621 games for Chelsea, 26 of them as a substitute, and he has scored 57 goals, comfortably the most by a defender in our history. He has been captain on 490 occasions.

The trophies he has won with Chelsea are the Champions League 2012, the Premier League 2005, 2006 and 2010, the Europa League 2013, the FA Cup 2000, 2007, 2009, 2010 and 2012, the League Cup 2005 and 2007 and the Community Shield 2005 and 2009.

He has been Chelsea Player of the Year on two occasions, 2001 and 2006, and other individual accolades include being named PFA Player of the Year in 2005, UEFA’s most valuable defender in 2005, 2008 and 2009 and five selections in the FIFA/FIFPro World Team of the Year.

    It should have been two years instead of one. He is a vital component of the team.

      His age must be the reason why he was given a year extension. We thank Terry for his contribution so far.

    No satisfaction from 1st team BUT a great double from the ‘boys’. Brilliant game vs ManUtd yesterday evening and second title of the season. Congratulations to U21 players: Jamal, Sewankambo, Aina, Christensen, Nditi; Loftus-Cheek (Palmer 78), Ake; Swift, Baker, Musonda (Colkett 86); Feruz.
    Well done guys!
