Conte Has Revealed Who Lifts The Epl Trophy For Chelsea

There was some uncertainty over who would have the honour of lifting the trophy at Stamford Bridge following a season in which the armband has been shared around.

The Blues won the title last Friday but must wait until after their final game of the season against Sunderland to get their hands on the silverware.

Gary Cahill, who had started every Premier League game this season before Chelsea’s 4-3 win over Watford, has been skippering the side when Terry hasn’t played.

However it will fall to Terry, who will leave Chelsea at the end of the season (and possibly retire), to do the honours.

Antonio Conte has revealed that Chelsea captain John Terry will lift the Premier League trophy on Sunday, despite barely featuring this season.

‘I’m looking forward to seeing him lift the cup and I think the players want to see this too. It is the right finale for John,’ Conte explained.

Conte went on to explain the loss that Terry would be to the Blues, despite the 36-year-old making just his fifth Premier League start.

‘He took his decision to play regularly every game [elsewhere] and for this reason he preferred to leave Chelsea. I don’t know where.

‘For us it’s a big loss because he helped me a lot off the pitch. He’s always sending the right message to the other players. It’s a pity for me but I must respect his decision.

‘At the minute his heart, body and head tell him he wants to continue to play so it’s right to allow him to. John wants to continue his career and I wish for him and his family all the best. Chelsea will always be his home. He’s a great man and a legend for Chelsea.’

Meanwhile N’Golo Kante has been recognized as the team’s standout player having won both the PFA and FWA Players of the Season awards this season.
