John Terry has been one of the finest players to don the colors of Chelsea as well as England. The Central Defender spent 19 years at the Bridge before moving to Villa.
Terry played for Aston Villa for a year wherein he made 32 appearances in the Championship. The central defender also represented England 78 times between 2003 and 2012. But Terry’s best days were with Chelsea whom he captained for over 10 years. Terry won the Premier League on 5 occasions and the Champions League once with the Blues among a host of other trophies.
Terry, now 37, has been without a club since the end of the 2017-18 season. However, it has now been confirmed that the former Chelsea skipper is set to join Spartak Moscow in Russia on a two-year deal. Terry, however, did express his desire to continue with Villa claiming that there was ‘unfinished business’.
“I loved my time at Aston Villa. I am still devastated that we didn’t go up. The manager, players, and supporters were incredible with me but I hate losing and I feel there is unfinished business there. Steve Bruce is a great man and with the backing of the new owners, Steve will hopefully get the club back into the Premier League. Don’t get me wrong, if I don’t play again I am content with what has been an unbelievable career, but I’m still hungry to go and play if everything around it is right. If it’s right for me and my family.”
Terry also expressed his desire to manage Chelsea one day, “Yes, it’s true, I want to be the manager of Chelsea one day but that is a five- to eight-year plan.”
“I have the voice of Ray Wilkins, who was such a brilliant man to me, in my mind. He missed playing every day after he retired and he told me, ‘John, play as long as you can, don’t close that door until you have to’.”
John Terry is the personification of leadership. At 37, he still has a bit of football left in him and he will definitely be a welcome addition to the Spartak Moscow side.
