Former Chelsea forward Didier Drogba has congratulated John Terry after the defender announced his retirement from the game. The 37-year-old has been without a club over the last few months after leaving Aston Villa at the end of last season. He has been linked with several clubs – including Spartak Moscow – over a short-term contract. However, he has now decided to hang up his boots and instead look at other options in his life. The 37-year-old will be remembered as one of the greatest Premier League defenders around and his retirement news quickly brought about a lot of congratulatory messages from around the world.
“Congrats on your amazing career my captain. It was a pleasure playing and winning all these trophies with you. PS: you still haven’t paid me the bet we did years ago, so please do it before I tell all my followers,” said Drogba.“Congratulations on an incredible career @johnterry.26. It was an honour to walk alongside you at @chelseafc and see close up the sheer will and desire to be the best and also encourage the best from all around you. Truly inspirational. On top of that, to have the qualities that meant you stayed at the very top of world football consistently throughout your time,” said Lampard.
