Terry 'proud' to be most successful Chelsea skipper ever

Published Add your comment

John Terry's landmark 500th Chelsea appearance has led the Stamford Bridge custodian to reflect on his career with the club.

The 30-year-old made his debut for the Blues in 1998 and reached his quintuple century on Sunday - something he is immensely proud of.

"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," said the Chelsea skipper.

"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."


Despite suffering some lows during his time at Bridge, Terry has enjoyed numerous highs, and the 10 trophies under his stewardship make him the most successful Chelsea captain ever.

Terry added: "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, and 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."
