John Terry is fondly remembered by Chelsea fans as ‘Captain, Leader, Legend’, and rightly so.
With 15 major honours to his name, JT is the most decorated footballer ever to don the Blues’ shirt and his memory will live long in the memory of Chelsea supporters far and wide. These days, Terry is plying his trade as an assistant manager at Aston Villa, where his experience of winning at the highest level will undoubtedly have a profound effect on the dressing room at Villa Park.
Unfortunately, given the current climate, his inspiring words will have to wait until another time, as Terry is focusing his attention to another battle in-hand, where not only his competitive streak will look to be reignited once more, but he will also be joining a fantastic campaign that aims to raise millions for NHS Charities.
A group of celebrities, including former-sports stars, comedians and actors, have signed up to compete in the NHS Charities Together Cup, which aims to raise £100m in support of the current Covid-19 crisis.
The FIFA 20 competition will involve eight all-celebrity teams, with three celebrities per team, going head-to-head in 12-minute long FIFA 20 matches. Fans will be given the chance to vote for who they want to see compete from every team in each round.
The competition’s organisers, Celebrity e-Sport, hope to raise a huge £100m for NHS charities together during these desperate times for all the care workers on the frontline, who are putting their own lives at risk to help save ours.
