Over the next few weeks we expect the tributes to flood in paying homage to John Terry, a player who is Chelsea through and through.

However, we doubt very much whether anybody will get close to matching the tribute JT`s close friend Frank Lampard left on social media.

Lampard, who shared the good times with JT and who recently announced he`d hung up his playing boots, had this to say,

“The last man standing of an incredible era for Chelsea FC. What a pleasure to play with the greatest defender in the Premier League history. In fact, I’d put him up with any defender in world football of any era. He led the club both on and off the pitch from the moment he made his debut. He set standards for everyone, whether it was demanding excellence in training, fighting for every win or respecting how fortunate we were to play for such a great club. He was, and is, a legend, not just for his talent but just as much for his desire to get the best out of himself and others around him. That’s what made him the most successful captain in the club’s history. Off the pitch a great friend to not just me but so many at the club and outside of it. The countless things I’ve seen JT do to help people outside of the game, things that not many see, are what defines him as a man. John Terry you deserve every accolade you get over the next weeks and beyond and I hope you get what you deserve and lift two massive trophies at the end of the season (just to add to the tally). Whatever you do next I know everyone will respect your decision and I know that the Chels will always be your club. Absolute respect #jt #captain #leader #legend”

An absolute superb tribute I`d say.
