Many Chelsea fans on Twitter have congratulated and praised ex-captain John Terry on the 21st anniversary of his debut for the club.
The official Chelsea Twitter account posted a picture of a young Terry, when he was 17 years old as a Chelsea prospect to mark the special occasion.
Chelsea fans were quick to share their love for their former captain.
Here’s a sample of Chelsea fans praising John Terry:

What do we think?
The word ‘legend’ gets thrown around when talking about ex-footballers, but in John Terry’s case, the word ‘legend’ is an accurate description for a man who gave everything for his club and won the lot on the way. There will always be a debate on who the best ever Premier League defender is (The Telegraph), but nobody can debate how influential and monumental Terry was in his long career at Chelsea.
