John Terry may have played his last game for Chelsea, but he still retains hope that he will stay with the club.
Terry’s current contract expires in June, but he is determined to stay on at Stamford Bridge and represent the club he has spent his entire career with, despite being told that he will not be offered a new deal.
The Blues skipper may not don a Chelsea jersey again, having been shown a red card during his side’s 3-2 loss to Sunderland on Saturday. As it was his second red card of the season, Terry will miss Chelsea’s last two Premier League fixtures against Liverpool on Wednesday and against champions Leicester City on Sunday.
Terry travelled to watch Danish outfit Brondby play Nordsjaelland on Monday, and there has been speculation that he may take up a coaching role at the club, which is owned by his personal friend, Jan Bech Andersen.
However, the former England captain has made it clear that his desire remains to extend his Chelsea career.
“I’m very good friends with Jan,” he told Brondby’s YouTube channel. “I still want to play for a couple more years.
“Hopefully, that’s at Chelsea. I’m a Chelsea player and Chelsea has been my club since the age of 14. I love Chelsea.”
Terry is third on the all-time appearances list for Chelsea as he has represented the club in 701 games in all competitions. In his time with the Blues, Terry has won four Premier League titles, five FA Cups, three League cups, the 2012 Champions League and 2013 Europa League.
