John Terry’s move to Aston Villa has confused many and left them wondering if seeing out his playing career in the Championship will damage his Chelsea legacy.
These people are idiots.
The idea that the John Terry legacy at Chelsea will be tarnished by going to Aston Villa is an incredibly short sighted and stupid viewpoint to take. Despite what opposition fans may say about him in public he leaves Chelsea one of the greatest players of the modern era.
His move to Aston Villa may or may not work out, but that will not change his place in the history of the Premier League or as one of the greatest English defenders of all time.
He joins Aston Villa in the Championship despite offers to stay in the Premier League, not wanting to line up against his beloved Blues.
The time was right for him to leave Chelsea as he was no longer able to contribute as much as he would have wanted, his competitive spirit meaning that all his move to Villa can remove the most pointless moniker of being a “one club man”
John Terry Legacy
At Chelsea, the John Terry legacy at Stamford Bridge will be felt for decades. After all his story is one that every footballer dreams of. He joined the youth team rose through the ranks, became captain and then went on to win it all.
The home-grown player that bridged the gap between the pre-and post Abramovich and captained the side to nirvana time and time again. He won more for Chelsea over two decades than the majority of English clubs have won in their entire existence.
We admit that John Terry has had moments that may not endear him to others, but his talent and impact on Chelsea is clear to see.
Even if he went to play in the Evo Stick Premier League and couldn’t get in the team his legacy would remain. Even if he got drawn against Chelsea in the cup and scored a hat trick against the Blues, he would still be remembered as the man who set up a dynasty.
So we hope he has a good season at Aston Villa and you never know he could be back at Chelsea in the dugout in the future.
