Terry made an incredible 717 appearances for Chelsea, the third highest in Chelsea FC history, only beaten by Peter Bonetti (729) and Ron Harris (795). The blues legend played alongside a staggering 167 players in his 22 year spell at the club!

Whilst at Chelsea, John Terry won five Premier League titles, four FA Cups, three League Cups, one UEFA Europa League and one UEFA Champions League title before finally departing for championship side Aston Villa in 2017. John also went on to gain 78 caps for England and is regarded by many as being the best centre back to play in the Premier league.

John Terry won many individual accolades too, being named the UEFA Club Defender of the year on three occasions, (2005, 2008 and 2009) five consecutive seasons in the FIFProWorld XI and holds the record for the highest scoring defender both for Chelsea (67) as well as the Premier League with a total of 41 goals!
