Where is John Terry now?
Chelsea’s legendary defender and former captain John Terry finally hung up his boots in 2018 after spending a season playing in the Championship with Aston Villa.
Starting his career in 1998 he went onto make 759 first team appearances winning a number of trophies including five Premier League titles, five FA Cup final wins, three League Cups, the UEFA Champions League and the Europa League.
He also won a number of individual awards including PFA Player’s Player of the Year in 2005, Chelsea’s Player of the Year twice and he was named in the PFA’s Team of the Year four times.
However, his time at Stamford Bridge wasn’t always plain sailing and he was involved in a number of incidents during his time at the club.
In 2001 he was fined two weeks wages for drunkenly abusing American tourists at Heathrow Airport 24 hours after the 9/11 tragedy, and in 2010 it was revealed by the media that he had been having a four month affair with team-mate Wayne Bridge’s girlfiend.
A year later Terry was accused of racial abuse at West Ham player Anton Ferdinand which, after a lengthy court battle led to him getting a £220,000 fine and a four-match ban (although he was cleared of racism but charged with ‘insulting words’).
That aside, he has often been praised over the years for his professionalism and dedication from former managers including Antonio Conte who went on the record to say that coaching him was a privilege.
He also played for and captained the England national side winning 78 caps and representing his country in the 2004 and 2012 European Championships as well as the 2006 and 2010 FIFA World Cup finals.
Having already spent a season as captain at Aston Villa, upon retiring from playing Terry stayed on at the club in his current role as assistant manager.
Away from football he was an investor in luxury swimwear company Thomas Royall from 2015 to 2019.
