John Terry Was In Tears When He Celebrated His Last Ever Goal For Chelsea
19 years, 500+ appearances, five Premier League titles, four FA Cups, three League cups and one Champions League title. John Terry is Mr Chelsea and his legacy at the club will live on forever.
His last season at Stamford Bridge was even a successful one. Another Premier League title was the icing on the cake for the former England international, and a first goal of the season against Watford was the perfect way to celebrate.
The goal marked three milestones. Firstly, it was Chelsea's 100th goal this season. It was also the club's 1000th goal under owner Roman Abramovich.
And finally, the header meant that Terry had scored in 17 consecutive seasons. A rather remarkable feat for a central defender.
Terry wheeled away in celebration, but it was obvious that his first season of the season was an emotional one. The 36-year-old held back tears as he celebrated in front of the Stamford Bridge faithful.
A goal he will remember for a very long time. A true legend of the game.

Terry played his final game of the Premier League season against Sunderland on May 21, where he came off in the 26th minute to a standing ovation.
His final bow was fittingly hosted at Wembley as Chelsea faced Arsenal in the FA Cup final, but it didn't exactly end well, with Arsenal eventually winning the trophy thanks to a late winner from Aaron Ramsey.
Still, it was a special way to end your career at the Blues.
Happy Birthday, JT - you will go down in history as one of the all time great English defenders.
