Chelsea are planning to parade the Champions League trophy ahead of next month’s friendly against London rivals Tottenham Hotspur — and John Terry seems to find it hilarious.

Unsurprisingly, the Blues have not had the opportunity to properly celebrate the Champions League-winning campaign with the fans due to the pandemic situation.

Instead of the usual open-top bus parade, Chelsea have decided to keep it inside the stadium.

A member of the squad is planned to carry the trophy around the pitch at Stamford Bridge in a pre-match entertainment prior to the Mind Series friendly fixture against Tottenham on Wednesday, 4 August.

Like many Chelsea fans, club legend Terry seems to love the idea, given the rivalry with Spurs.

Well, so far, Chelsea are the only club in London to win the prestigious Ol’ Big Ears — and the Spurs fans may not enjoy the planned pre-match entertainment.


Terry left a cheeky reaction — mostly laughing emojis — in the comment section of Sky Sports’ Instagram post below.

Terry left Aston Villa to pursue his dream of becoming manager

The former Blues captain also recently announced his departure from Villa where he spent almost three years as an assistant manager.

“My immediate plan is to spend some quality time with my family, and thereafter, hopefully take up some invitations to visit clubs and managers around Europe to develop my aim and objective of becoming a manager,” he wrote on Instagram.

While Terry himself did not mention it in the post, he has previously spoken about his desire to become a Chelsea manager in the future.

“My ambition is very clear,” the former England defender told The Times back in May.

“There’s an end goal for me, and that’s managing Chelsea Football Club.”
