John Terry has revealed his pride at making his 500th appearance for Chelsea against Tottenham on Saturday.
He said: "Looking back, 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."
The Chelsea captain also looked back at the best and worst moments of his career at the club.
"My top moment would have to be the Barcelona game when we beat them here and I scored the winner. The low-point is obviously the Champions League final, missing the penalty.
"But throughout my career I've been the most successful captain in Chelsea's history and that means a lot to me and it's something I'll always take with me."
