John Terry: No chances left

May 5th 2016, 90 minutes + 5 at The Light, John Terry stunned everyone by kicking the ball into Wahbi Khazri’s back. Second yellow card was given to him, and Chelsea captain’s head hang low in regret.
The red card not only closed a bad match for the Blues against Sunderland, but also closed Terry’s career at Stamford Bridge. His contract with Chelsea was going to expire at the end of the 15/16 season, and with a two-game suspension, Terry’s head hung low on the grass field will almost be the last time the True Blues fans will see his captain in their color.
Fortunately, the tragedy did not happen when Chelsea decided to extend the contract with Terry for a further year. The True Blues rejoiced and included hope. It is hoped he will return as he did in the 2014/2015 season. Terry playing well means Chelsea will play well, that definition has never been wrong in more than a decade.
Antonio Conte is on his way to London, and the Italian man may be the dosage of doping that Terry needs now.
Half way through, Chelsea has indeed shed and returned to dominate the Premier League, but people no longer see Terry again. Injuries and inconsistencies in Conte’s football philosophy made Terry just a supporting character at Stamford Bridge.
It has been eight official appearances since the start of the season, and it’s been a long time since Terry left. And worse, he can not afford the rare opportunities he has. Again is a fundamental foul, is a red card, the face bowed against Peterborough.
But this time, there is probably no chance for Terry anymore.
Chelsea are undergoing a change of blood under coach Conte. The earl’s young vampire is what the Blues need now, just like the energy from the Costa, Hazard or Kante. There is no room for mistakes, nor is there room for the old.
Perhaps it was time for Terry to learn to accept the shame of football, accepting that he would leave like Lampard, Cole or Cech. A generation is about to pass, making way for a new era.
