John Terry Chelsea Betrayal: Blues skipper being pushed out when contract expires

In potentially the first major football bombshell of 2016, Chelsea defender and captain John Terry will apparently leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season when his contract expires.

According to the Telegraph, Terry was informed by the club that his contract will not be renewed when it expires at the end of the 2015-16 season. The report revealed that Terry was informed in a team meeting prior to the club’s 1-0 win over Arsenal that his deal would not be renewed, effectively putting an end to his time at Chelsea after 18 years.

In a storied career filled with all kinds of highlights and off-the-field controversy, Terry’s success on the field is undeniable. He owns four Premier League titles, five FA Cups, three League Cups, as well as a Champions League and a Europa League title.

The 35-year-old Terry was capped 78 times for England from 2003 to 2012, scoring six goals and earning UEFA Team of the Year honors four times.

To date he has made 696 appearances for Chelsea – a number that will likely exceed 700 by the end of the year.
