John Terry to leave Chelsea at the end of the Season

Chelsea FC have announced that their longest serving player will be leaving the club at the end of the season. John Terry joined The Blues in 1995 as a Youth player before joining the Senior ranks in 1998 and since then has become one of the greatest ever to play for the London club having captained the team for a record 578 times.

It doesn’t seem like this is a retirement move either as the former England Captain said “I feel I still have plenty to offer on the pitch but understand that opportunities here at Chelsea will be limited for me” when talking about his departure from the club, but the club have stated that he could return to the club in a “non-playing capacity” sometime in the near future.

Terry has won 14 major honours with Chelsea including a Champions League, four Premier League titles, the Europa League, five FA Cups and three League cups during the clubs most successful period in their history.

UEFA Champions League draw results

It’s that time of year again where we all jump the gun and try and logistically work out each round of the Champions League, from the dream match ups to the easier draws for our favourite teams. This year the biggest name for us here in the UK is seeing little old Leicester City up there with the big boys of European club football. The Premier League champions have been seeded into Group G where their toughest challenge looks to come from Porto, which for the neutral is quite exciting to see if the dream can continue for Leicester and perhaps lead them to a big match against the likes of Barcelona, something fans could not have imagined this time last year but is not very possible.

Other worthy group news is Arsenal seeding into Group A with French big boys PSG. Will Arsene’s team make it through to the knockout stages for the 17th consecutive year? Rebellious Noise’s own Dan recently wrote in his Premier League predictions article that he felt that this year may be Wenger’s last, which if correct will mean this is the managers last attempt at European glory, something he so narrowly missed out on 10 years ago in Paris.

2015 champions Barcelona have been paired with possibly the strongest of all the 2nd tier teams, Manchester City. Guardiola’s Sky Blue men will face off against his Catalonian first love in what is sure to be a match up to remember. Last year’s champions Real Madrid have drawn 2013’s runners up Borussia Dortmund whilst the winners from that year, Bayern Munich have ended up in Group D with last years finalists Atletico Madrid.
