Chelsea legend John Terry recall and speak on his last moment as Chelsea player: One of the favourite in my career

Terry left Chelsea at the end of the 2013/14 campaign.

Terry was given a guard of honour in his final game at Stamford Bridge thanks to then-manager Conte.

Speaking about his Chelsea farewell, John Terry said: "It's one of the favourite moments of my career. I remember other players like Lamps didn't get the send-off they deserved so I was happy to go out how I wanted.

"[Antonio] Conte told me I could play the match but we came to an agreement that I would play for 26 minutes and that would allow [Gary] Cahill to keep his rhythm ahead of the [FA Cup] final the next weekend.

"I didn't play much that season because we were playing three at the back. I was coming to the end but we won the league which was fantastic for me. I wanted a proper send-off and Conte and Gary were excellent with me."

Terry was taken off the pitch after 26 minutes (his Chelsea no.) against Sunderland with the Englishman's teammates clapping him off the pitch in two lines. Follow us on Google newsTwitter and on Facebook
