John Terry has uploaded a nostalgic post on Instagram showing his admiration for Sir Alex Ferguson while confirming how close he came to signing for him.
The legendary Chelsea defender confessed to being a Manchester United supporter growing up as a kid despite living in London, who would of thought?!
What’s more, he nearly signed for The Reds. Terry shared an image of him next to the ex-United boss after spending a time at Old Trafford as a 14-year-old.
Ultimately the 35-year-old opted for Chelsea following a memorable first day at the club, claiming he knew this was the team for him.
And he had quite the distinguished playing career winning four Premier League titles, five FA Cups and the famous Champions League triumph in Munich not to mention his status as an all-time Chelsea great.
