Kurt Zouma was shocked by John Terry’s contract revelation

Terry has announced he is leaving the club he joined at the age of 14 after they opted not to offer him a new contract.
“I am very surprised – I didn’t know. Now we have to see what John wants to do because I think he can play for another one or two years. This feels like when we lost Drogba last summer. Terry is a huge personality at Chelsea. When you lose these kind of players, you have to replace them but I don’t know how John can be replaced. We have to think about it. For me he can play many more times. He is still at a top level. He has been playing very well since I arrived at Chelsea. His performances have been consistent. Since I have been at the club, I haven’t seen him play badly. That’s the truth. He was always helping everybody. He has been a massive support to me. When I started my first games last year he was always talking to me. He is a legend and a very good leader. I have learnt a lot from him. I don’t know what to say, I am very surprised,” said Zouma.
