Terry drops retirement hint

Terry drops retirement hint

Chelsea captain John Terry appears to have dropped a big hint over his future plans after revealing his current choice of literature on Instagram.

The 35-year-old is set to bring a 22-year stay at Stamford Bridge to an end this summer when his contract expires, but his next move is as yet unknown.

A lucrative move to the Chinese Super League has been mooted but if his Instagram story is anything to go by, it looks as though the former England skipper may be preparing to hang up his boots.

Terry, who documented the Chelsea squad’s flight to Liverpool ahead of Tuesday’s crunch clash against Jurgen Klopp’s men, revealed he is currently reading Alan Gernon’s book Retired: What Happens To Footballers When the Game’s Up.

That was not all that was on display, however. He also took a video selfie with Brazilian duo Diego Costa and David Luiz appearing in the background as they made their way to Merseyside in luxury.

But the book is sure to raise the most interest as it suggests that Terry will bring an end to a hugely successful career this summer, finishing as a one-club man in professional terms.

Published in May 2016, Retired details the financial struggles that many footballers suffer soon after they finish their careers in the game, in some cases even declaring bankruptcy.
