Chelsea transfer rumours
The 34-year-old has had an excellent season for Jose Mourinho’s side, proving to still be one of the club’s most important performers with some rock-solid and commanding displays at the back.
This is the Chelsea captain’s fourth Premier League title now, and he believes he has still shown how important he is to the team after helping them to more success this season, despite one of his old bosses, Rafael Benitez, trying to phase him out of the starting lineup during his brief time in charge.
Benitez, also formerly of Liverpool, worked as interim manager for Chelsea in the 2012/13 season, and often rotated Terry with other defenders in order to give the ageing star a rest.
However, the former England international believes he has shown he can still play every game, saying: “One person said I couldn’t play twice in a week. He knows who he is. I’m still here, still fighting.”
