John Terry has retirated his desire to remain at Chelsea insisting he still has what it takes to perform at the top flight of English football.
The England international was sent off late in the 3-2 loss against Chelsea and has retirated his dedsire to still stay at the club where he has been since he was 14. “I still want to play for a couple more years, hopefully that’s at Chelsea,’ said Terry.”I’m a Chelsea player and that has been my club since the age of 14. I love Chelsea”.
Terry was in Denmark on Monday to watch Brondby IF, the club owned by close friend Jan Bech Andersen, and spoke to the club’s TV station.Indeed, he has even been linked with a coaching role at Brondby, although a move to China or MLS is more likely should his Chelsea career be over 21 years after joining as a schoolboy.Discussing his relationship with Andersen and Brondby, he said: “I knew about Brondby as a kid growing up, I used to watch all their big games.They were a huge club for me growing up and since meeting Jan a few years ago, we’re great family friends and Jan’s been inviting me over for the last couple of years.I’ve been promising him I’d come over and thankfully, with the schedules back in England, I’ve managed to come over today and watch the game, which I’m very excited about.It’s great to be here and to support Jan and the team today”.
