Terry is now the former Chelsea captain after his side played their final game of the season in the 2-1 FA Cup Final defeat to Arsenal at the weekend.
He’ll now exit Stamford Bridge for the final time after the expiration of his contract, bringing the curtain down on a legendary 19-year spell as a first team player.
The defender might not retire, but you’d think he had if you read the tributes to him.
Zouma has added his voice to the praise of Terry and what he’s done for the club – and it might make Chelsea fans cry:

Thanks @johnterry.26 for making me so welcome when I arrived at the club. I watched you play from I was young and was an honour to play alongside you. What a list of trophies you take with you captain 🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆!!! Wish you all the best for future #captainleaderlegend #truelegend
Fans will no doubt hope that Zouma and the rest of his Chelsea defensive team-mates can make sure Terry isn’t a miss in the squad going forward.
Despite not playing much this term, Terry has undoubtedly been a big influence in Antonio Conte’s squad as they won the Premier League title.
He’s led Chelsea to 15 major trophies and will go down as arguably the greatest player to ever turn out in their colours.
