I think it is fair to say that Chelsea’s captain John Terry isn’t top of too many managers, fans or fellow footballers Christmas card lists – in fairness, he probably knows that himself.
The former England international’s reputation has been soured after allegations were made involving Wayne Bridge and an ex of his, as well, of course, Terry’s four-game ban for allegedly racially abusing Anton Ferdinand.
Although most of us will forever see Terry as the player we love to hate – unless you’re a Chelsea fan – JT has shown he isn’t all evil after a fan took to Instagram to reveal the grand gesture Terry had done for him.
We rarely see this side to footballers and the fact the Chelsea defender – in action against NK Maribor tonight – wasn’t singing from the rooftops about this perhaps suggests it goes on a lot more than we give our ‘heroes’ credit for?
My amazing girlfriend spoke to JT on instagram and told him my love for Chelsea. As it was my birthday coming up JT was kind enough to send me his match worn shirt with the squads signatures. It was more than what @bethevansbrown asked for which was just a simple happy birthday message (which he also did). I honestly cannot be thankful enough to someone who is a legend at this club and is a fan of CFC himself. To get this from my favourite player ever was a dream come true and I cannot show how grateful I am to the squad and JT especially for this amazing gift. I will continue to support the mighty chels the rest of my life and things like this make me feel so grateful. Thankyou John! I cannot thank you enough! @johnterry.26 #cfc #chelsea #captainleaderlegend
