John Terry is back at Stamford Bridge for training ahead of this weekend’s Soccer Aid 2019 and the Chelsea legend has found a note he left for Ruben Loftus-Cheek in his old locker.
The former England defender will join other stars including ex-team-mates Didier Drogba, Joe Cole and Michael Essien as well as Britain’s most successful track athlete Sir Mo Farah at the charity football match on Sunday night.
Terry made more than 700 appearances and won 15 major honours for Chelsea during his 19-season stay with the club and he was back at his old stomping ground on Thursday as both teams prepared to carry out their final preparations.
Terry filmed himself stepping back into the Chelsea home dressing room and made a beeline for his former locker that is now frequented by Loftus-Cheek.
After opening the locker and pulling out a drawer, Terry revealed he left the midfielder a note before he departed in 2017.
‘I left him a note when I left and he’s still got it,’ Terry explains.
‘Get out of my locker!!! stiffest man alive, Ruben Loftus-Cheek. You know.’
The 38-year-old will play for former national team coach Sam Allardyce, who will co-manage the Three Lions alongside Good Morning Britain host Susanna Reid.
Piers Morgan will co-manage the Rest of the World side alongside Harry Redknapp for the charity showdown, which will be hosted at Stamford Bridge for the first time in its 13-year history.
Legendary players including Eric Cantona, Jamie Carragher, Michael Owen and Robert Pires have already been confirmed as participants this year.
Last year the event raised a record breaking total of more than £6.7million for UNICEF, with the match won by England on penalties after a 3-3 draw in normal time.
Players from both teams were seen in training on Thursday morning as they look to finalise their plans for the light-hearted game.
Terry was seen keeping a close eye on Sir Mo as he dribbled with the ball during one exercise designed by Allardyce.
Eight-time Olympic champion Usain Bolt will continue his foray into football when he lines up for the rest of the world. The Jamaican was seen barking instructions at his colleagues on the touchline.
Star of hit BBC drama ‘Line of Duty’ Martin Compston is well known for his ability with the ball and he was picture dictating play in a small-sided match. Fellow Scot and X-Men actor James McAvoy also took to the pitch as he vies for a place in the starting line-up.
