Legendary England defender John Terry has call it a day with his professional football career.

The decision is not unconnected with the former Chelsea and England captain's  inability to find a new club stretching four months now.

He player announced this to his numerous fans from around the world on his instagram page yesterday saying:

"After 23 incredible years as a footballer, I have decided now is the right time to retire from playing,"

The mercurial center-back also has 78 caps and six goals for the English national team, making appearances at FIFA World Cups and two European Championships.

Terry swapped Chelsea for Championship side Aston Villa in 2017, but left the club in summer after it failed to qualify for the Premier League.
