Former Chelsea Captain John Terry Announces His Retirement

Former Chelsea Captain John Terry Announces His Retirement

He said in a post on Instagram: "After 23 years as a football, I have decided not is the right time to retire from playing".

Terry also won both a Champions League and Europa League winners' medal although he did not appear in either final, having been suspended for the 2012 European Cup triumph and injured for the Europa League success the following year.

Arsenal legend and former France worldwide Thierry Henry is set to finally realise his ambition of calling the shots as a club manage after he impressed the owners of English Championship side Aston Villa in an interview for their top job.

The Celtic boss has been linked with a move away from the club after Villa sacked Steve Bruce last week. I'm lucky to have shared a lot of memories and I will be always grateful for everything I have learned from you, a true leader and a legend of @ChelseaFC and football.

Terry joined Chelsea's academy from West Ham at the age of 14 and made his first-team debut as a substitute in a League Cup victory over Villa in October 1998.


"So yeah, you can't rule me out because I have never been asked".

Hibs' successful return to Scotland's top flight was reflected in the Easter Road club's latest financial figures, which show the Edinburgh outfit back in the black, recording a pre-tax profit of £200,000 for the year ended 30 June compared to a loss of £277,000 for the previous 12 months.

"And I also want to say a huge thank you to Aston Villa for giving me the opportunity to play at such a big club and captain it throughout the 2017-18 season". It was a privilege to represent such a renowned football club with great fans.

The centre-back hasn't played since Villa's Championship play-off heartache at the hands of Fulham last season.

He was recently on the verge of a move to Spartak Moscow and had a medical before changing his mind after saying it was not right for his family.
