Up and down the country John Terry gets abused by opposition supporters. Everyone rightly so has an opinion but JT himself believes that these boo-boys would love him if he was playing for them.
'You hope that when you hang up your boots, obviously, you don't want to be hated. You just want to be known as a very good footballer and someone who gave their all for their club.
I'm sure that if I was in their team, they (the opposing fans) would love me in their team because I'm one of those players who gives everything to the cause.
Regardless of what people think or say, you can't take away what I've done in the game. As a person and player, that's for anyone who's met me.
Anyone who's not met me shouldn't be judging me or the character or person I am but as I say, footballing wise they've had opportunities to see me play and if you're a football person you can make a judgement on whether I'm a good player or not.'
To us JT will always be a Chelsea legend and that will never change. I prefer to judge people for what they give to our Football Club and to the team rather than anything going on outside of that.
Unfortunately, there will always be people that look past the football and look past what he has achieved in his playing career to focus on the negative. There is nothing you can do about that, this is how some people choose to be.
However, if he was playing for the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool or Manchester United you have to wonder if he would get the same abuse from the supporters of those clubs while he was there?
John Terry is and remains the best centre back in the country by a mile. Maybe when he decides to call time on his career in the Premier League and Chelsea, people outside will actually consider what a great player he really is!
