Chelsea fans know that there will be a certain day during the current decade where they will see their beloved captain lead out the side for the last time. It will not, of course, spell the end for his association with Chelsea—he may be given a coaching role—but it will be a depressing moment nonetheless.

Because when John Terry turns 33 in December, he knows he will have just a few precious years left in him before the proverbial curtain is brought down on his career.

Replacing the Barking-born defender will be extremely difficult; his leadership and quality is felt both on and off the pitch, and his connection with the fans at Stamford Bridge is admirable.

He has won numerous titles with Chelsea, including three Premier League titles and has a Champions League winner's medal to his name. So to follow in the footsteps of Terry will be a tough task for his replacement.

Could it be a rising star at the club already who can take the reins over from the former West Ham trainee? Or is a big-name signing required?

Come find out who we think can lead Chelsea once Terry has hung his boots.
