It’s sometimes easy to remember and get distracted by all the off-pitch headlines when discussing certain footballers’ qualities - but, in truth, that shouldn’t matter.

For all of John Terry’s alleged misdemeanours, nobody can argue that the Chelsea captain has been one of the best central defenders in world football over the last decade.

Terry - who has won three Premier League titles, five FA Cups and a Champions League during his career at Chelsea - has been an ever-present in the Blues’ side this season, which is testament to his longevity and desire to continue winning trophies.

It’s just a shame England won’t have him in Brazil this summer.
