Chelsea captain John Terry has described his final game for Chelsea as one of the ‘most difficult days of his life.’
The defender brought a glittering Chelsea career to an end in the final-day victory over Sunderland, before addressing the fans at Stamford Bridge.
“Today is one of the most difficult days of my life,” he said.
“I’ve been very fortunate to work with some unbelievable players and managers throughout my career. I’m thankful to every single one of them.
“We all have to thank Roman Abramovich. I’d like to thank him and all the board. He’s the best owner in world football.
“I’d like to thank my wife and my kids for supporting me in this amazing journey I’ve had.
“You are the best supporters in the world, without a shadow of a doubt. You’ve given me everything. You picked me up when I was down, sung my name when I had a bad game and disappointed you.
“I’ll come back here one day, supporting the team for years to come.”
