"First and foremost I'd like to wish Claudio Ranieri and Leicester congratulations,” Terry said. “For me I’m delighted Leicester have won it, I’m just glad Tottenham haven’t.”
Needless to say, this drew a huge cheer from the Chelsea supporters.
Terry's speech became emotional
Terry’s speech became more emotional as he went on - there were even a couple of tears shed by the 35-year-old - and he admitted he wanted to stay with the west London outfit.
“I want to be here for the rest of my career,” he continued. “I want to stay.”
Terry was given the bumps by his teammates - presumably in case he fails to reach an agreement with Chelsea over a new contract - but it would be a surprise if the former England captain isn’t part of Antonio Conte’s squad come the start of next season.
“We’ll be back next year and we’ll be fighting for the title,” he added.
