Terry: I ‘ll never leave Chelsea

TerryJOHN Terry is determined to enjoy a successful conclusion to his Chelsea career by continuing to confound his critics.

The 34-year-old, who is adored by many in football and loathed by some, hopes to earn an extension to his contract which expires at the end of the current campaign.

Terry scored the opening goal in a man-of-the-match display in Chelsea’s League Cup final victory over Tottenham on Sunday. It was the first trophy of Jose Mourinho’s second spell as Blues boss, with Terry still a central figure 10 years after the Portuguese’s first Stamford Bridge silverware in the same competition.

“I am fighting for myself and my family, and to prove people wrong,” Terry said. “It doesn’t come much bigger than that. I want to give it everything.

“I don’t know how long I have left. Hopefully I have a few years left but if this is my last year then I hope it will go out on a bang. I have my little target to play next year but beyond that, two or three years (more), I don’t know.”

Asked if he would play for another club, Terry added: “No, and I also think there’s a right time to go as well. Certainly I am feeling great at the minute and it would be the wrong time to go.

“But there does come a point where it would be the right time to go, to say it’s time to move on and people will remember you that way.”
