John Terry certainly matches that standards and will continue to contribute greatly as a leader until his sorrowful goodbye.
Who might his replacement be? Vice-captain Branislav Ivanović (and Nigeria captain Mikel John Obi) are in a similar predicament and will probably both leave the club at the end of the season. Gary Cahill currently has the responsibility of the armband on matchdays, while leaders like David Luiz and Eden Hazard are setting good examples on the pitch. Would they be next in line?
