John Terry With Chelsea Only
John Terry, the captain of England Football team, has finally put an end to the dreams of Manchester City and confirmed that he would stay at Chelsea.
In a statement on Sunday, Terry claimed that he never had plans to leave Chelsea and will push the south London club to sign new players this summer.
"There has been a lot of speculation recently about my future and I want to clear this up once and for all. I am totally committed to Chelsea and always have been. Chelsea have also made it clear to me consistently that there was never any intention to accept any kind of offer," Terry said.
"When you are linked with any club or with a manager who I have huge respect for, it will always make headlines but me leaving Chelsea was never a possibility. I know there has been comment that I should have made a statement earlier. However throughout this period there have been numerous discussions between myself, the owner and the Chelsea board and we all agreed that the timing of any statement would suit everyone involved in those talks, not any outside influences or agendas," he added.
Terry hoped that new coach Carlo Ancelotti will take the club on to the next level and that the club management will secure the future of key current players.
"Another important factor was knowing that Chelsea would be securing key current players for the long term. The strengthening of the squad around this core is crucial to pushing us onto greater success. I am as committed as ever to helping drive Chelsea forward and I will be proud to lead the team for as long as I can," he said.
