Staying in the Premier League a bad idea for Terry says Ron Harris

Chelsea’s captain, leader, legend John Terry played his final game at Stamford Brigde in a Blues shirt on Sunday where he was substituted in the 26th minute and given a guard of honour by teammates while handing over the armband to England international Gary Cahill.

Terry’s next move is still unknown, however a host of lower ranked Premier League sides have been linked with Bournemouth, West Brom and Swansea all in the mix.

However, Blues legend and former captain Ron Harris feels that staying in the top flight might not be the best idea for the former England international.

“John Terry has been a tremendous servant for the club over 20 years there,” the former defender told ahead of the launch of the Limited Edition Hardback signed edition of “King Conte.”

“But without being disrespectful the team haven’t missed him this season!

“Its a shame he’s going, of course, but he if wants another club, then he needs a bigger club rather than go to a struggling club.

“When you reach his age, a bit of pace goes, you lose that a bit, and he will be exposed.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if he goes to China.”

The 36-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to the Chinese Super League, however, Shanghai Shenhua manager, and former Chelsea icon, Gus Poyet admitted recently that a deal may be less likely now that the league have restricted the amount of foreign players in each squad.

With the restrictions in place, CSL clubs are far more likely to opt for attacking stars to fill their allocation of foreign players as opposed to the likes of Terry.

“King Conte” ” is published in two weeks, but pre-orders are now being taken of this potential best seller.
