Chelsea captain John Terry has lauded former Blues striker Kerry Dixon, describing the eight-time England international as “a fabulous ambassador for the football club”.
Dixon, who made over 300 appearances for the London side in his playing days, has had ups and downs off the pitch, but is currently working to reinvent himself and his remarkable life story ‘Kerry Dixon – Legends Lives’ will premiere at the Sanctum Soho Hotel in two weeks’ time.
Speaking in an exclusive interview for the documentary, Terry had his say on the former Chelsea man:
“Even when I was coming through, he was a big legend at the football club.
“A fabulous ambassador for the football club as well with what he achieved in terms of his great goalscoring record.
“He is a great man as well in the way he was somebody who welcomed me when I was coming through the ranks, and he continued to be a big part of that when I was developing.
“It’s still great to see him around the club as well.”
Terry, himself a Chelsea legend, is in line to return to first-team duties in the FA Cup this weekend with David Luiz set to be sidelined for the club’s clash with Wolves due to a knee injury.
Dixon’s playing career saw him also represent Reading over 100 times and play for Southampton, while he notched four goals in eight appearances for England.
