Terry's trophy haul as Chelsea captain

Sport360 staff 16/05/2017

John Terry captained Chelsea to a fifth Premier League title this season and has the chance to win further silverware before he leaves Stamford Bridge in the summer.

Terry has led the club through their most successful period and become the most decorated captain in the modern era in English football.

The 36-year-old will hope to sign off from Chelsea with a 16th major honour at Wembley when Antonio Conte's men take on Arsenal in the FA Cup final on May 27.

Here, we take a look at the trophies Terry has won since he was made skipper in 2004.

Premier League (5): 2004-05, 2005-06, 2009-10, 2014-15, 2016-17

FA Cup (4): 2006-07, 2008-09, 2009-10, 2011-12 (also won in 1999-2000, when Dennis Wise was captain)

Did you know John George Terry supported Manchester United growing up, enjoys playing golf with Niall from One Direction and was Dad of the Year in 2009?

Here, we look at five things you may not have heard about the Chelsea skipper, who is considering retiring when he leaves the club at the end of the season.

DIRECTION

In June 2014, keen golfer Terry teamed up with Sky pundit Jamie Redknapp to take on Niall Horan from boyband One Direction and former Chelsea team-mate Andriy Shevchenko at Wisley golf course in Surrey.

The pre-season tussle saw Terry and Redknapp get the better of the pop pin-up and ex-Chelsea forward, who went on to become a semi-professional golfer. The Blues skipper also struck up a friendship with Australian snooker player Neil Robertson when the former world number one visited Cobham training ground for a game of pool.

Robertson claimed Terry was “a lot better” than he expected after losing the first frame. A man of many talents.

TERRY THE TERRIER

Barring a brief loan spell at Nottingham Forest, Terry has spent the whole of his career at Stamford Bridge. But did you know Steve Bruce was on the verge of taking the defender to Huddersfield in 2000?

It was while a 19-year-old Terry was at the City Ground and Bruce was in the process of doing his Football Association coaching badges. Bruce told the Guardian in an interview six years ago: “I bid £750,000 for him, it was a lot of money for me then, and Chelsea accepted it.

But the boy didn’t want to leave Stamford Bridge at the time. I was close, but at the death he didn’t want to go.”

DAY OF THE YEAR

Terry has posted many a picture of himself with his kids on his Instagram account, and why shouldn’t he? He was, after all, named Dad of the Year in 2009.

The former England skipper topped a poll run by Daddies Sauce to win the sought-after accolade, beating off stiff competition in the form of Peter Andre and then-PM Gordon Brown. After winning the award, Terry said:

“I have won many trophies in my career but I’m proud to say that this is up there with all of them.” Terry narrowly missed the birth of twins Georgie and Summer, despite a frantic rush from an England training camp in Portugal.

BETTER THE RED DEVIL YOU KNOW

Chelsea stalwart Terry was a Manchester United fan growing up and still has nothing but praise for the club’s former manager Sir Alex Ferguson. In an interview with the Guardian in 2006 the centre-back revealed he supported United as a boy as “you want to support the team that’s winning everything”.

He quickly covered his back, adding: “But my first day at Chelsea I knew that was the club I wanted to be at. I just loved it.”

Sir Alex took Terry under his wing when he went up to Manchester to train with United’s kids before signing for the Blues, and has played for Ferguson’s side in a Unicef charity game organised by David Beckham.

AN INTERNET SENSATION

One thing you probably do know about Terry (but it is worth reminding ourselves) is that he caused an internet sensation back in 2012. Picture the scene. Chelsea had just won the Champions League final by beating German giants Bayern Munich 4-3 on penalties following a 1-1 draw after extra time.

Terry, who was suspended for the game, appeared on the pitch to lift the trophy inexplicably decked out in his full Chelsea kit – including shinpads. He was mercilessly lampooned on social media via a series of memes which included Terry gatecrashing the moon landing and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding and also holding up a tank in Tiananmen Square, all in full kit.

Despite being suspended, Leicester’s Robert Huth celebrated his side’s title last year by putting on his kit and tweeting: “Going full John Terry today!! #fullkit #LCFC.”

Woodward with Mourinho.

Manchester United are performing better than expected off the field and are now predicting record revenues of up to £570million this year.

Jose Mourinho’s men sit sixth in the Premier League and have the Europa League final against Ajax to look forward to next week.

But despite league struggles and being without Champions League football, United have raised guidance on revenue and profit for the year ending June 30, 2017.

United have increased projected revenue in their third quarter results to between £560million to £570million – a £30million rise on the second quarter prediction.

The club achieved a record profit of £191.9million last year and, despite big-name acquisitions and the lack of Champions League football, are on course for earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation of between £185million to £195million.

United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward said: “As we near the end of the season, I am delighted we have picked up two trophies so far, and look forward to competing for a third in the Europa League final, the only trophy we have never won.

“We are forecasting better full year financial performance than expected and as such have raised our revenue and profit guidance for the year.

“We look forward to a strong finish to 2016-17, both on and off the pitch.”

Total revenue for the fiscal third quarter ending March 31, 2017 was £127.2million and broadcasting revenues of £31.4million were up 12.9 per cent for the quarter.

Staff costs rose 18.3 per cent on the previous year quarter and net debt is £366.63million, representing a £17.6million increase over the year but US dollar debt principal remains unchanged.
