Antonio Conte praise Chelsea legend John Terry professionalism during his title-winning first season

Chelsea legend John Terry will never cease to be in the mouth of former Chelsea coach Antonio Conte as he praises the former blue star professionalism.

John Terry played his last season as a Chelsea player during the spell of Antonio Conte and has moved into the coaching world as an assistant coach in Aston villa.

"It was a great privilege for me to be the coach of a Chelsea legend like John Terry," Conte told Sky Sports News in a rare interview.

"We are talking about a top man, a really good man and then a top player. He helped me a lot in my first season in and out of the pitch."

"He was very important in the training ground, during the sessions to keep the concentration standards high."

Michy Batshuayi's late goal at West Brom confirmed the Blues as champions exactly three years ago on Tuesday, with Terry featuring just nine times in the league.

Terry was given a send-off in front of the Chelsea fans at Stamford Bridge when he was substituted in the 26th minute of the game against Sunderland.

"He decided he wanted this because 26 was his squad number and for me, it was a pleasure to give him this opportunity.

"I will never be able to thank him enough. He was very important for me and our team."

Conte pointed to the 4-0 demolition of Manchester United as a key game in the title push in the days he celebrated wildly with the supporters close to the home dugout.
