Cape Town - John Terry has ruled out copying Frank Lampard by joining another Premier League club when his time at Chelsea comes to an end.
At 34, Terry remains one of the very best defenders not only in England but the world. After playing every minute of Chelsea's 2014/15 league title winning side, the English defender is determined to continue playing for Chelsea.
“I am not taking anything for granted. The manager has said if I can keep my form, I am in the side." Terry told theGuardian.
"But if I don’t keep my form he will have no qualms about taking me out and putting someone else in,”.
Last season, Frank Lampard sealed a stunning loan move to Manchester City from New York City FC after leaving Chelsea.
Terry insists he would not copy his former colleague by joining another Premier League club.
"If I then felt Chelsea were going to release me or thought I had nothing else to give, but I thought I could, then of course I would still want to continue to play. But that would not be in the Premier League.”
The long-serving Chelsea skipper warned fellow Premier League sides but vowing to continue giving everything for the blue of Chelsea.
"I realise one day that my career will come to an end so I want to give everything these next few years."
Terry made his Chelsea debut in October 1998 as a late substitute in a League Cup tie with Aston Villa and has gone on to make over 450 appearances in all competitions for the club.
