John Terry confirms he will not be leaving Chelsea at the end the season, despite only having 12 months left on his current contract. He has made it clear that he won’t be going anywhere else this year, and if he leaves next summer it won’t be to a rival Premiership club.
“I’ve got another year on my contract and definitely will be here next year,” said Terry.
“Where I would go after that it certainly wouldn’t be in England. I couldn’t do that to Chelsea or the fans. That’s just not me.”
The Blues captain is still hopeful that Chelsea will give him another contract extension, but he is not unduly worried about it right now: “It would be nice to get some silverware, get the season out of the way and maybe talk contracts in the summer,” Terry continued.
“It depends on my fitness and me staying in a good enough condition to impress the guys who make those decisions.
“I have got another year left which I will honour and respect, regardless if it’s a yes or a no.”
Spoken like a true Chelsea legend, and personally I can’t see why Abramovich can’t keep him on if only to teach the new upcoming young stars what it really means to wear the famous shirt of Champions.
