John Terry’s No.26 shirt to be retired? Chelsea fans discuss club decision

CHELSEA fans are pondering whether John Terry’s famous No.26 shirt should be retired.

Legend Terry, 36, this week announced his decision to leave the club at the end of the season.

Terry has spent 22 years at Stamford Bridge – during which time he’s made the 26 shirt his own.

And it’s that which has left supporters debating whether no-one should be allowed to worn again.

A fan poll conducted on popular forum theshedend.com showed 67 per cent wanted the No.26 to be retired.

There’s a precedent, too, with Chelsea unofficially retiring the No.25 worn by Gianfranco Zola.

But the comments suggested opinion was very much split between supporters.

One wrote: “No. Can't stand the thought of retiring shirt numbers. Let the legacy continue.”
