Terry, who is now a development coach at Stamford Bridge, wrote on Instagram: “What a great career my friend, it was a pleasure to play and share a dressing room with you. Love you Georgie Boy.”

“Thanks, Georgie boy, love ya old boy. You made us winners in that dressing room. And loads of banter, thank you,” Mikel responded to Terry.
