Ex-Blues skipper John Terry posted an emotional message on Instagram for the departing Chelsea boss
John Terry has thanked Antonio Conte for helping him through a tough time after the Italian was sacked by Chelsea.
Conte spent two years in charge at Stamford Bridge, bringing Premier League and FA Cup success to west London.
However, the Blues failed to qualify for next season’s Champions League and his relationship with the board turned sour.
Terry, who played his last season at Chelsea under Conte, paid tribute to his former manager on Instagram.
He said: “Love this man. Thanks for everything Boss.
“In a time that should have been the most difficult season of my career, Antonio was honest, respectful and there for me whenever I needed him.
“I loved working and learning from him.”
