Chelsea captain Terry proud to reach 600-game landmark

Chelsea captain John Terry is full of pride reaching the 600 appearances milestone for the club.

Terry made his 600th appearance for the club against Liverpool, ensuring he became only the fourth player in our history - along with Frank Lampard, Peter Bonetti and Ron Harris - to do so, and it was understandably a special moment for the skipper.

"I look at 'Chopper' Harris and Peter Bonetti and it has always been the ambition for me to get up there with them, along with Lamps, who is the other player to have played 600 games here," Terry tells the latest edition of Chelsea.

"Looking at those names, I am among legends and it is an honour just to be there. It is something I have always strived for, from when I was a kid at this club.

"I think it comes down to maintaining a level of performance, no matter what status you have at the club. Growing up with the likes of Michael Duberry, Frank Leboeuf and Marcel Desailly definitely improved my game.

"Not only because of the way they looked after me or the education they gave me through watching them play and training with them on a daily basis - they had the time to talk to a 17-year-old who was trying to learn his trade - but also through me wanting to stay out there after sessions and wanting to improve on what they told me."
