Chelsea captain John Terry will keep the captain’s armband this season, but like many other ageing Stamford Bridge stars will not receive a new contract offer, according to the Daily Mirror.
It is reported that Terry’s age and off the field problems are causing his club to backtrack on any future contract offers for the former England captain who has been involved in a racist row and personal issues with fellow professionals in the past 18 months.
Terry’s club mates Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole are also likely to be moved on as owner Roman Abramovich looks to create his own, young squad.
Lampard has seen very little first team football this season and left back Cole has fierce opposition from Ryan Bertrand, who was recently called up to the England squad by Roy Hodgson.
It seems that despite holding the captaincy at the moment, Terry and his friends may soon see the younger, fitter, more talented generation take over in West London.
