Antonio Conte urges Chelsea legend John Terry not to retire

However after Monday's insane 4-3 win against Watford, John Terry hinted that he will not play again after the season ends this weekend.

After clinching the Premier League title last Friday night, Chelsea are in party mode - that party being a seven-goal thriller against Watford at Stamford Bridge.

Homecoming: Antonio Conte and his team celebrate their league victory on their first game back at Stamford Bridge.

"It depends, if the right offer comes along I will sit down and consider it with my family - whether that is here, abroad, or wherever that may be".

"John wants to continue to play".

"It is going to be sad and emotional for me on Sunday because I've been here 22 years - but I'm delighted for the experiences and opportunities I have been given".

However, as has been the case all season, Chelsea found a way and Cesc Fabregas struck from the edge of the box in the 88 minute to swing the game in the Blues' favour.

John Terry believes spending this season on the first-team periphery at Chelsea is good preparation for management - and not playing has been enjoyable because "I have had my time".

"Genuinely I have not made any decisions of yet and I am evaluating all my options at the moment".

The Blues were crowned as Premier League champions last week after their 1-0 win at West Bromwich Albion sealed them the Premier League title.

"No, he should absolutely not retire", Conte said, as reported by Goal.

"I really don't want to say anything about, so far", Conte told TransferMarketWeb when asked about whether he will stay put at Chelsea or leave.

"Antonio Conte and his squad, who will contest the FA Cup final the day before the parade, will be accompanied on the route by the academy, which has enjoyed another unprecedented year of success".

"It's not as if I like to play against Arsenal because they are a club which is in my heart and they will always be".
