In an emotional and extremely lengthy post on his Instagram post ahead of Chelsea’s first home game of the season against Tottenham, Terry wrote:

“As we enter a new era under new ownership, I would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to Marina, Bruce and Eugene for all their fantastic and hard work at our amazing football club.

“You all helped us become the BEST and win every trophy in world football.

“This would not have been possible without all your amazing work and passion during your time at Chelsea,” he added.

The Russian bought the club in 2003 and enjoyed immense success for 19 years as he watched his superstar-laden teams conquer England and Europe and lifted 21 trophies as the owner.

Abramovich sold the club in May after its assets were frozen by the British government in retaliation for the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine. Current boss Todd Boehly bought the Blues in a £4.25billion deal.

Terry continued to praise the 55-year-old in his post, simply calling him “the boss” and “the best owner in the world”.

‘Roman. Boss… Words will never be enough to express my THANK YOU. The support you gave me on and off the pitch will stay with me forever.

“They have created a world-class men’s team, women’s team and academy that enable us all to do our best and fulfill our dreams.

“Your legacy and your name will be remembered forever. You are the BEST owner in the world.

“Thank you for everything. We have memories that we will all keep forever,” Terry said.

The ex-England captain now works at his former club as a part-time coaching adviser and wanted to complete his tribute to the club’s previous owners by wishing new owner Todd Boehly all the best for the future.

Antonio Conte, former Chelsea Premier League manager, returns to Stamford Bridge with his Tottenham side on Sunday afternoon.

“I also want to wish Todd and the new owner well,” wrote Terry.

“Good luck to the players in our first home game at Stamford Bridge today and for the season ahead.

“Massive London derby today lads”.
