John Terry's Chelsea career comes to an end - Twitter loving it!
John Terry’s Chelsea enduring career has come to a miserable end after he was sent off at Sunderland, resulting in a two-game ban that will end his season.
Terry has confirmed that his time at Chelsea will come to an end after their final game of the season against new champions Leicester next Sunday, but he will now be forced to watch that game from the sidelines.
Chelsea lost what will probably be Terry’s final game as they went down 3-2 to Sunderland at the Stadium of Light, with interim boss Guus Hiddink admitting after the game that his skipper is ‘sad’ to be missing his own farewell party at Stamford Bridge next Sunday.
“It is sad of course he was sent off for a second yellow card and as it is his second it means he will be suspended,” said Hiddink, as he confirmed Terry will not play again this season. “We don’t know his future, but clearly this is a shame.”
Hiddink’s sentiments on Terry’s miserable afternoon were, naturally, not shared Twitter users, who jumped at the chance to mercilessly taunt a footballer who has long been a figure of fun for rival fans.
Terry leaves Chelsea with a 14 major trophies on his record, with some on Twitter suggesting he may reprise an old trick of wearing a full Chelsea kit at Stamford Bridge next weekend, even though he won’t be playing.
Terry did just that as he lifted the Champions League trophy in 2012 and the Europa League silverware in 2013, even though he did not play in either final.
