Swansea will pursue move for Chelsea captain John Terry

Swansea will pursue move for Chelsea captain John Terry

John Terry believes spending this season on the first-team periphery at Chelsea is good preparation for management - and not playing has been enjoyable because "I have had my time".

The champions can become the first team in the competition's 25-year history to get 30 wins in a single season - after beating Watford 4-3 on Monday night.

His head coach, Antonio Conte, urged him to stick with his original plan and play on. "The players and I want to reach this target". "John is a great man and a great legend for Chelsea".

As for Terry, who has now made 715 appearances for Chelsea and amassed five Premier League titles, five FA Cups and a Champions League title, Conte had nothing but praise for the Blues icon as he approaches the end of the road.

"I know I said I wanted to play regular football, but I have not ruled out Sunday being my last game and retiring", Terry told British media after the game.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte paid tribute to departing captain John Terry, adding that he would look forward to seeing the long-serving defender lift the English Premier League title on Sunday.

"I was delighted to get on the scoresheet and more importantly to get the win".




Terry had nothing but praise for former Juventus and Italy boss Conte.

With the Premier League title already sewn up, Antonio Conte made a decision to give a number of his regulars a break on Monday night, making nine changes ahead of their home clash with Watford.

That has allowed the title celebrations to start early in west London, with Conte still looking to end his debut campaign with a league and FA Cup double. "I have to pick players that for me are in better form". If I ask him to go and put on the gloves and stay in goal he is ready.

"I was sitting there wishing that the boys kept winning and performing well because for me I have had that time".

"It's amusing to watch a game and to see both teams score four and three goals", Conte said.

"In this case I am very angry because he must think to give me a bit of chocolate cake!"
