Given Terry hung up his boots officially as a player only yesterday, you’d have thought it would’ve been him taking a lot of the plaudits, but instead he chose to shine the spotlight onto his pal Lamps.
Lampard was being inducted into the Legends of Football Hall of Fame, alongside some of the greatest-ever players to kick a ball, and JT certainly didn’t hold back in his effusive praise of his former colleague:
🗣 "I believe he’s the best player we’ve ever had at Chelsea"

Given Chelsea’s illustrious history – particularly since Roman Abramovich took over at Stamford Bridge in 2003 – how big an honour is it to be called the Blues’ best-ever?
And is Terry right? With the likes of Zola, Drogba and Terry himself to complete with, who would you choose?
