On Friday morning Terry posted a picture of him and Lampard holding the FA Cup on his Instagram account accompanied by the comment: "Devastated is an understatement. We should retire the number 8 shirt in honour of Lamps. #theheartbeat #hero #legend #hero #goalmachine #friend #ktbffh [keep the blue flag flying high] #cfc #chelsea."
Terry later added that he was reacting to quotes attributed to Lampard's agent, Steve Kutner, in the Italian media in which he reportedly said the midfielder would definitely be leaving Stamford Bridge this summer.
"I have seen franks agents [sic] quotes on sky yesterday. That's all I'm going on nothing more," he posted.
Kutner has since denied giving any such interview.
