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."
