Aston Villa defender is considered to be one of the best central defenders of his generation.
He captained Chelsea from 2004 to 2017 and had gone to become the club’s most successful captain, having won many titles including five Premier League titles and one Champions League title.
Terry gained notoriety in 2009 when he bedded the wife of England teammate Wayne Bridge.
Needless to say, Bridge had apparently just ended his relationship with his wife Vanessa Perroncel when John Terry weaselled his way in. When the affair became public, a media circus ensued.
