John Terry has expressed his pride at playing in his 500th game for Chelsea last Saturday when his side faced Tottenham. The game was a crucial one in the hunt to retain the Premier League and although the game was won under controversial circumstances it has left the Blues with the chance to go top of the table if they beat Manchester United this weekend.
Speaking to the Metro about his personal achievement Terry said: “When I was 18, on 30-odd games, I could never have predicted where I am today. I’m delighted to hit 500. I’m very proud. I’ve got a great rapport with the fans and I want many, many more games. I’ve got three years left on my contract and that’s what I intend to do”.
Looking back over his career he picked out his best and worst experiences. “My top moment would have to be the Barcelona game when we beat them here at Stamford Bridge and I scored the winner. The low point is obviously the Champions League final, missing the penalty”.
The games against United on Sunday could decide the Premier League as there are only two games left after that. Both teams have the same goal difference so a win for Chelsea will see them go top.
