Chelsea captain and defender John Terry has extended his contract with the Blues until the end of the 2015-16 season. Terry, whose previous deal ran out by the end of the season, has won 13 major honours with the club, scoring a club record of 63 goals for a defender. With Chelsea, he has won three League Cups, one Champions League, one Europa League, three Premier League titles and five FA Cup winner’s medals.
The club released an official statement in their website saying,
Chelsea Football Club is delighted to announce that John Terry has signed a new contract, extending his stay until the end of the 2015/16 campaign.
Terry, after signing the contract extension, said: “I'm delighted to have signed an extension to my contract with Chelsea. After adding another major trophy to my collection this month I hope myself, the players and manager can continue to bring success to our club.”
“Playing for this great club makes me so proud. And as always I would like to thank the fans who have continually supported me.”
Blues manager Jose Mourinho added,
“This new contract is not to say “thank you very much”; it is because John continues to perform. He is a top defender. I am happy that he completely deserves this new contract after a season where he has already played 40 matches.”
