Manchester United beat Chelsea 2-0 on Sunday afternoon after Jose Mourinho outthought Antonio Conte at Old Trafford. United were so dominant that the visiting team didn’t register a single shot on goal. This is the first time the blues have been victim to such a fate in a decade, the last time, interestingly, coming in Chelsea’s first game after sacking Mourinho in 2007.
Hours after the game, with Chelsea fans now fearing the unthinkable Tottenham Hotspur title win, their captain, John Terry, announced he had asked to leave the club at the end of the season.
Terry grew up as a Manchester United fan, thanks to his Red dad and grandfather, and famously helped United win the Champions League in 2008 when he slipped during the penalty shoot-out. Had he scored, Chelsea would have been crowned European Champions for the first time in their history.
Terry has chosen not to see out his career at Chelsea and spurn the opportunity of being remembered as a one club hero, like Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes or Gary Neville.
On behalf of fellow United fans, Terry, thanks for the memories.
