Chelsea legend: Antonio Conte has chosen this player to lead his team


Chelsea defender John Terry will continue to be the leader at Stamford Bridge according to club legend Marcel Desailly.

The Englishman was expected to leave the Blues in the summer but signed a new contract in May that will keep him at the club for at least one more season.

And the Frenchman says there is no reason why the 35-year-old cannot be the leader in the Italian's squad

"Maybe he [Conte] had power over it," Desailly said.

"Chelsea as the rule said look we don't give contracts out more than one year or they made a statement that they don't want John to stay.

"But then probably Conte said, 'wait, wait, wait, he's historic, let me discuss with him and explain to him what I want to do next season'.

"Maybe the discussion went very well so Chelsea in that case said we are ready to give a contract for another year to the leader of the team.

"But I hope he will not retire after this year [when his contract with Chelsea expires] and will continue to try to play in a different country."
