John Terry made his Chelsea debut 17 years ago. In almost two decades, he has played with some of the best footballers we have seen in British football.

From Gianfranco Zola to Didier Drogba, from Arjen Robben to Frank Lampard, Terry has had the honour to share the dressing room with some of the games’ greats.

In an interview with Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher, Terry named his dream Chelsea XI.

“I’ve never done this before!” Terry laughed.

“I’m going to play 4-3-3. So we’ll say, Cech, Ivanovic, Carvalho, Ash. I’m putting myself in!

“Now this is where it gets hard… Lamps… Didier… Robben, Duffer was good, wasn’t he? But it’s got to be Hazard in that position.

“Then Makelele, plus Zola. It’s got to be him, hasn’t it? We’d be s*** at corners but we’d be all right otherwise!”
