Video: John Terry Gets a Standing Ovation As He’s Brought On vs Southampton

With Chelsea surely home an dry with a 3-1 lead against Southampton, Antonio Conte decided to bring on John Terry to a touching standing ovation.

The game at Stamford Bridge eventually ended 4-2 to the Premier League leaders, with goals from Eden Hazard, Gary Cahill and a double from Diego Costa enough to seal the three points.

However, the game was almost overshadowed by the moment Terry came on to replace Victor Moses, with the ex-England skipper making his first appearance for the club since Novermber 5.

Almost every supporter in the stadium stood to applaud the 36-year-old, who is reportedly keen to stay in England, despite leaving the club he’s spent his entire career playing for:

Terry has made over 450 appearances for the Blues since making his debut in 1998, winning four Premier League titles, five FA Cups, a Champions League and a UEFA Cup.

And the veteran defender could add to that tally before he leaves, with Chelsea top of the table and set to play Arsenal in this year’s FA Cup final.
