It is never easy to replace a club legend like John Terry.
It was announced earlier this week that Terry’s contract would not be renewed as the club looks to go into a different direction.
He has been captain for the club permanently since 2004 and led Chelsea to numerous trophies in the years after. When people think of Chelsea, they think of Terry.
With all that said, Terry is 35 and the club should look for a more youthful direction. The club believes Kurt Zouma can lead the club in the back, but who will he partner with? Gary Cahill has not been used by Guus Hiddink while recent signing Matt Miazga is only 20 with no European experience. Chelsea must look for a replacement.
Our regulars at the Tavern know the club will not find another John Terry, but believe it should do its best in the attempts to sign a similar replacement.
Terry’s leadership, defensive organisation, and tackling have made him for years. However, there are players who do possess similar traits.
Here are FIVE players that should replace Terry at Chelsea……….
