5 best moments from John Terry's Chelsea career
#4 Captaining the Chelsea Team
John Terry captained Chelsea for the first time on 5 December 2001 in a league match against Charlton Athletic. Although Chelsea lost the match 1-0, this match will probably go down as one of the most defining moments of his career.
At that time, the club captain was France International and fellow defender Marcel Dessaily. He was appointed the regular club captain in the 2003-04 season by manager Claudio Ranieri when Dessaily was out of the team.
He kept the captain's armband for the next 13 years, becoming Chelsea's most successful captain ever in the process.
