Chelsea captain Terry lost without Cole and Lampard

Chelsea captain John Terry has admitted to feeling ‘lost’ around the club without Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole, the Daily Mail has reported.

Cole and Lampard were allowed to leave on free transfers at the end of the season, the former signing for Serie A side Roma and the latter joining New York City FC. However, Lampard has moved on loan to New York City’s parent club Manchester City and will spend the first half of the new Premier League season at the Etihad Stadium.


Lampard had been a Chelsea player since 2001 while Cole moved to the club from Arsenal in 2006 and Terry revealed it was a surreal experience to return to training without his long-time teammates.


“I felt lost the first few days (of pre-season). At Cobham Lamps is next door to me and Ash is a couple up,” he confirmed. “We've grown up together and won and lost here at Chelsea and done many great things so I was very sad to see them go.


“And to see Ash already sign for Roma and Lamps has signed for New York... It doesn't seem right to me seeing them in different shirts. Maybe over time that will ease but it doesn't seem right.”


On the subject of Lampard, Terry added that the midfielder was among Chelsea’s best ever players but lamented that all things must end. “He's been an idol and someone I aspire to be in training, around the place, off the field,” Terry said. “He was a great character but footballing wise I've never met someone who works as hard as he does on the field to improve his game.


“To do what he has done at the club...for me there's no one better,” he went on. “Lamps has been an absolute legend at this football club and his legacy will remain forever. This club is evolving. One day we'll all be gone.”


Terry has been at Chelsea his entire career bar a brief loan spell at Nottingham Forest, taking in six games in the 1999-00 season. The centre-back has made more than 600 appearances for Chelsea, winning the Premier League three times, five FA Cups, the Europa League and the Champions League.
