Gary Cahill will take over the reigns from John Terry and will be leading the blues in their Title Defence this season. Chelsea Football Club's Coach Antonio Conte announced this news earlier this week.
Cahill joined Chelsea in January 2012 after a successful £7 million bid by the then Chelsea manager André Villas-Boas. Cahill went on to perform phenomenally and won UEFA Champions League and FA Cup in his debut season at Chelsea and went on to win UEFA Europa League, League Cup and Premier League with Chelsea.
During the last season, Cahill made his 200th appearance for Chelsea at home against Burnley, helping his team to earn a clean-sheet for the first time that season in a 3–0 victory. Following that, he captained the side for the first time last season when John Terry was injured against a match with Leicester City.
With John Terry retiring with the last season, the club management has given the reigns to Gary. Official Announcement was made by Antonio Conte on 26th July 2017.
Chelsea Planet wishes Gary and the blues all success in their Title Defense this season.
