Chelsea captain, legend and leader John Terry will be quitting the Blues this summer following a joint statement released on Monday by the club and the defender.
Terry is a father of two beautiful children and he has been happily married to Toni for the past 10 years.
He has been exceptional winning the EPL – four times, FA Cup – 5 times, Carling Cup – 3 times, FA Community shield – twice, UEFA Champions League – once and the Europa Cup – once as well.
Bounce News looks at five Nigerian players that have shared the stage with Terry.
1. Celestine Babayaro
Celestine Babayaro played alongside John Terry during the early days of the Chelsea man at Stamford Bridge and they were both solid for the Blues in defence.
2. John Obi Mikel
Mikel and Terry were the last men standing in the Chelsea generation that metamorphosed from minnows in England to European champions and Kings at Stamford Bridge.
Both players were the longest serving members of the Blues squad alongside Branislva Ivanovic. The Serbian and Nigerian have left the club with the English man set to follow at the end of the season.
3. Victor Moses
Victor Moses didn’t not play too many games with John Terry because he was constantly sent on loan – three consecutive times to be specific.
Although, it has changed this season with the Nigerian playing virtually every game but injury has prevented Terry from playing most of the games.
4. Ola Aina
The new catch by the Super Eagles handlers has been on the periphery of Chelsea with very few appearances for the first team.
Aina made his full professional debut for Chelsea in the EFL Cup game against Bristol City last August and he was subbed off by Terry after a slight knock to his ankle.
5. Kenneth Omeruo
Omeruo ranks lowest in this list as he had only enjoyed training games with the Chelsea legend.
Since being bought by Chelsea in 2012, Omeruo has no record of a competitive game for the Blues, but he described Terry as an exceptional and selfless leader.
