John Terry Reveals Who He Thinks Should Replace Him At Chelsea

John Terry has named his long-term successor when he leaves Chelsea, claiming youth-team player Jake Clarke-Salter is up to the task.

The 35-year-old centre-back seems to be nearing the end of his trophy-laden career at Stamford Bridge, with the club looking unwilling to give him a new contract at the end of the season.

But whilst Terry might be on his way out, the former England skipper has assured incoming manager Antonio Conte that there is already a ready-made replacement on the Blues' books in the shape of Clarke-Salter.

The 18-year-old defender is highly thought of by the Chelsea hierarchy, and made his senior debut in the recent 4-1 Premier League win over Aston Villa.

He signed a new four-year deal in November, and Terry told The Mirror: "Jake has a great attitude. I remember watching him a couple of years ago being in control of the game and a really vocal player. He reminds me a bit of myself.

"[Jake] is doing great and I hope he goes on to take my position and get in the first team. It was great for him to make his debut.

"I was disappointed I wasn't there to support him because I missed the game [through injury]. But watching it from home, I was delighted."
