Club legend and former captain John Terry was back at the Chelsea training ground on Wednesday to see old teammates and club staff after bidding an emotional farewell to the Blues at the end of last season.
Chelsea winger Pedro posted a photo of Terry's surprise visit on Instagram, writing: " Nice to see you again crack!!! @johnterry.26 !! Legend!!"
The defender spent 19 years at Stamford Bridge and was captain in an era described as Chelsea's most fruitful years in terms of titles which included 5 Premier League titles, a fistful of FA and League Cups as well as the Europa League and Champions League trophies.
The 36-year-old consequently signed with Aston Villa and dropped by prior to the Championship club's EFL Cup tie at Colchester United on Wednesday.
In the end, a rested Terry was not included in Villa's squad for the Colchester match, which Villa won 2-1.
