John Terry talks about his controversial Chelsea farewell

Chelsea's defender John Terry waves to the crowd as he is substituted off in the 26th minute at Stamford Bridge

Terry, who made 717 appearances for the newly-crowned Premier League champions in an illustrious career spanning nearly two decades, ran onto the field for the last time on Sunday in his club's 5-1 win over Sunderland and spoke with reporters after the match about his future.

Sir Alex, who won 13 Premier League titles, said: "I just wonder if they realise the job he's done".

The fact that Terry had arranged to be substituted during the game and disrupted the fixture caused anger among some fans - but the 36-year-old said that the reaction hasn't affected him.

"First of all (Terry) has been an absolute giant of the Premier League, 717 appearances, 15 trophies, but I'm not sure about this", the former England striker told Match of the Day.

However, the veteran defender does not care about the criticism and only cares about the Chelsea supporters.

"Me and them have an unbelievable rapport and have had for 22 years and no-one, whatever you write or someone says or someone's opinion, can ever get in the way of that".

"I need to take a step back away from the bubble and say, 'What does John Terry want to do?'", he said. So if you have a goalkeeper, number one, is he going to come off in the first minute?

Antonio Conte has warned that Chelsea can not afford to be complacent in the FA Cup final - and has claimed that Arsenal are favourites.

I couldn't care less, I promise you.

It is believed that a move overseas to China or the USA is now unlikely, and Terry will be making a straight decision between continuing to play Premier League football for a club that can offer regular game time, or retirement.

"We know that we've got the opportunity of playing in the FA Cup final and it's something we really want to do our best in".

"I promise you I will never forget it".

By the time he left the field through a guard of honour formed by his teammates, it was the 28th minute. I'm a great admirer of Rio Ferdiniand and the Arsenal boys were tough to play against but he is clever, it was his intelligence.
