Former Chelsea star defender John Terry is expecting a clean slate at Aston Villa after he completed his move to the Championship side.
The former England international moved a division lower in a desperate bid to get regular game time as his career winds down.
The player has been a Blues star for so long it is difficult to imagine him lining up in a Claret and Blue jersey. While he was unveiled Terry promised the Villa fans that he did not move to the midlands just because he wanted more money or did not just want to give up football yet. The Champions League winner said it was a fresh challenge for him.
“It is down to me to perform week in, week out, and prove to players I can do it and am not one of those players at the end of my career looking for a pay day. That is certainly not the case, I would be somewhere else if that was the case.
“I will still get those butterflies before the games. That hunger has driven me for 18 years now and if I can add to that by getting us promoted then I will have done by job this year,” the new signing said.
Terry agreed to a one year deal with an option of another year. He is set to receive £5 million annually from the deal. JT, as fondly called, recalled that he has not always been a favourite at Villa Park. He mentioned that he was abused in 2013 as fans chanted ‘let him die.’ He adds that he hopes the fans give him a new slate to contribute to the promotion drive in Steve Bruce’s team.
Terry has been involved in a lot of controversies in his career. He left the Three Lions team on a bad note. He fell out with Wayne Bridge and racially abused Anton Ferdinand. He admits that he has a few blights but quickly mentioned how much he has contributed to the game.
Terry was linked with several sides in the top flight when he decided to exit Stamford Bridge. However he decided to go the Villa route before he hangs up his boots.
