Good news for all Chelsea London fans. John Terry has decided to continue his football career for another season and has just signed a new one year contract with the club.
The 34-year-old defender wasn't sure about his future so far but apparently after enjoying a good season at Stamford Bridge he has decided to continue even though he's obviously not getting any younger.
Terry has already made 661 appearances for the club since his debut in 1998. He has scored 63 goals which is not a bad result as for a defender.
He has enjoyed a pretty successful spell at the club winning the Champions League (x1), Premier League (x3), FA Cup (x5) and League Cup (x3).
He was also a regular national team player having played 78 games for England scoring 6 goals.
After announcing the contract extension Terry said:
“I'm delighted to have signed an extension to my contract with Chelsea.
“After adding another major trophy to my collection this month I hope myself, the players and manager can continue to bring success to our club.
“Playing for this great club makes me so proud. And as always I would like to thank the fans who have continually supported me.”
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho added that the new contract is not signed because Terry is a football icon at Stamford Bridge. It has been signed because he is performing really well for the club and his services are still very much needed.
