John Terry

"Captain, leader, legend". Chelsea fans' slogan for their hero rang true as the defender captained the Blues to five titles, the most by any player as a captain in the Premier League era. 

One of the best centre-backs in the competition’s history, Terry led by example with his willingness to put his body on the line.

He also contributed at the other end of the pitch, scoring more PL goals than any other defender at the time he left Chelsea in 2017.

What they said

"In my opinion the best centre-half in world football for a long time." – Frank Lampard

“I would have to say John Terry is the toughest defender I’ve played against. He reads the game really well, he’s physical and he’s tough to play against so you know you’re always in for a tough game when you play against him.” – Wayne Rooney.

“John was an amazing player. He would block, he would win every header. He was just a really aggressive centre-back who was brilliant on the ball. Sometimes I think he was underrated." – Michael Owen
