Chelsea skipper Terry writes tribute to Di Matteo

Chelsea skipper John Terry paid tribute to former manager Roberto di Matteo in his match programme notes on Sunday.

Terry missed the draw with Manchester City with a knee injury.

In his programme notes for the game Terry wrote: "I want to say that it was a privilege to play for Robbie. I had the pleasure, as a YTS player growing up, of watching and learning from him and to go on and play under him as captain was an honour.

"Robbie is a great man and an absolute legend. We wish him every success in the future, because saying thanks doesn’t seem enough. On Thursday, we welcomed Rafa Benitez as our first-team manager. All the players are looking forward to working with him."
