Terry, one of just three players to make over 700 appearances for the club, will depart nearly 20 years after making his first-team debut.

Terry is Chelsea's most decorated player of all-time having won the Champions League, four Premier League titles, the Europa League, five FA Cups and three League Cups after progressing through the club's academy.

Speaking on Soccer AM, Drogba said: "I would have loved [to play for Conte]".

Chelsea skipper John Terry announced he will be leaving the Blues after a 22-year affiliation earlier this week.

Perhaps a lower league club could sign him as a reserve forward... stranger things have happened. I was a footballer and when you arrive in this point of your career, and your body tells you to continue it is right to. Because when you finish... we have to respect his decision.

"If you ask me 'is he a serious loss for next season?' yes I think so because I'm seeing what John is doing this season and I repeat for the changing room, for this moment of Chelsea, we are building the foundation, a player like John Terry is very important for us".

The 31-year-old was admitted to hospital on Tuesday after training and released on Thursday following treatment and tests but the Blues boss says it is "very difficult" for Cahill to be ready for the cup tie.

Your guess is as good as ours about what a good score is here, but we want to know how you get on as ever. "This period is not a lucky period for us".

"This is a semi-final and in this season I know we tried to have in every position two options, and usually the player that usually plays and another player. I have to think about the right solution".
