John Terry and Salomon Kalou wish Chelsea man good luck for his new adventure on social media

John Terry and Salomon Kalou both reacted to Ashley Cole’s confirmed departure from Chelsea to Everton.

Cole swapped one blue jersey for another after he was selected by Frank Lampard to join his new back-room staff at Goodison Park.

The legendary left-back had occasionally been working at Cobham with the academy sides, alongside his role as England’s Under-21 assistant manager.

Whilst he is set to keep hold of the national team job, Everton will take over most of his time, meaning trips to Chelsea’s training ground are now only for special occasions.

Cole loved by the Chelsea community

Following the announcement that Cole had reunited with Lampard, the former defender vocalised his thoughts via an Instagram post.

He declared his delight at joining the Toffees, whilst also thanking Chelsea for developing him as a managerial candidate.

Plenty of the Blue family sent their good luck wishes, including two of his former teammates.

Terry, who played next to Cole on 311 occasions and won eight major titles together, offered his support.

Kalou, a part of the 2012 Champions League-winning dressing room, also responded.

Mario Melchiot and Carlton Cole may have been before Cole’s time at Stamford Bridge, but they sent their virtually crossed fingers as well.

Chelsea might be losing one of their iconic stars, but they have fortunately managed to replace them with another.

Following his stint as Dean Smiths’ right-hand man at Aston Villa, Terry returned to Chelsea in a coaching consultancy role for the club’s development set-up.

He could well be joined by a member of his bloodline before too long.

Frankie Terry is reportedly on trial currently with the Champions League holders after Colchester United allowed him to follow in his uncle’s footsteps.

All the more Terry’s, the better!
