Kurt Zouma with John Terry 1 Kurt Zouma has expressed his shock at Chelsea’s decision not to offer John Terry a new contract.Terry revealed on Sunday that he is set to end his 18-year Blues career at the end of the season after being informed by the club they will not extend his current deal.According to Zouma, however, the 35-year-old has plenty of years left in him at the top and he believes his central defensive partner will be almost impossible to replace.“I am very surprised – I didn’t know,” Zouma told the London Evening Standard.“Now we have to see what John wants to do because I think he can play for another one or two years.“This feels like when we lost Didier (Drogba) last summer. (Terry) is a huge personality at Chelsea. When you lose these kind of players, you have to replace them but I don’t know how John can be replaced. We have to think about it.“For me he can play many more times. He is still at a top level. He has been playing very well since I arrived at Chelsea. He can continue for sure.“His performances have been consistent. Since I have been at the club, I haven’t seen him play badly. That’s the truth. He was always helping everybody.“He has been a massive support to me. When I started my first games last year he was always talking to me. He is a legend and a very good leader. I have learnt a lot from him. I don’t know what to say, I am very surprised.”Despite Terry’s revelation on Sunday, Chelsea have publicly insisted that the veteran defender could still be offered a new deal.The club have yet to appoint a permanent successor to Jose Mourinho and the new boss could decide they want to keep Terry.
