The former England captain captioned a photo of him holding aloft the Premier League trophy as Chelsea captain.

Over the weekend, Henry had emerged as the front-runner and was said to be lining up former Chelsea captain Terry as his number two.

He was also among the golden generation of the Blues squad that won the UEFA Champions League title in Germany in 2012 after beating Bayern Munich on penalties.

The 37-year-old centre half captained Aston Villa in the second tier of English football last season, but left the club in the summer.

Thierry Henry remains undecided on his future following links with the vacant Aston Villa manager's role, Sky sources understand.

Former Blackburn striker Chris Sutton, who played for Villa in 2006-07 before injury ended his professional career, believes Terry has the attributes to succeed. I have to say it was the most joyous I have ever felt in getting that promotion. "Thank you for the memories Georgie".

This was as ugly a game as you'll see a team play in the postseason. "We saw it in Game 1, and we saw it throughout the season". "Obviously, we're all in with this, so you ever know what can happen in Game 3, but it should be Nate 3, Rick 4", Cora said.

Lacazette confident more to come from high-flying Arsenal
The last time the Gunners didn't experience a win was in the narrow away defeat to Chelsea, stretching back over nine games. Despite the hot streak, Lacazette insists it is too early to talk of securing a return to the Premier League's top four.

"It was an honour to walk alongside you at @chelseafc and see close up the sheer will and desire to be the best and also encourage the best from all around you".

Henry, who is now assistant manager to Belgium manager Roberto Martinez, was close to taking over as manager of Ligue 1 club Bordeaux prior to the start of the season, before deciding against the move.

"Villa are a top Premier League club in the Championship and I'm sure with their support base and resources they will try and get back there as quickly as they can". I hope I have done you all proud wearing the shirt and the armband.

"It was a privilege to represent such a renowned football club with great fans".

Terry turned down a move to Spartak Moscow last month, despite reportedly having a medical, saying it was not right for his family. I look forward to the next chapter in my life and the challenges in my head.
