Cape Town - Veteran Chelsea defender John Terry has revealed that he wants to continue playing for at least another two years.

Under the guidance of manager Antonio Conte, the Blues have re-established themselves as Premier League title contenders, returning to the top of the table after a 2-1 win over Tottenham.

Terry has struggled with ailments this term and has made only two appearances since straining ankle ligaments in September, missing out against Spurs due to a muscle injury.

"I still want to play for a couple more years - whether that is here at Chelsea or somewhere abroad, I don't know," Terry told SFR Sport website. "It's an option."

"I am contracted to Chelsea for this season and then will see after that. I'm doing my coaching badges. I don't know if I want to be a coach, but I want to do my badges and pass."

When asked about his desire to win the Premier League, Terry added: "When I see other teams win it, it makes me feel angry, it makes me feel sick, you feel like you have let everyone down.

"I am where I am today because of that hunger. There were better players when I was younger, but I wanted it more.

"It's still there today, at the age of 35. You miss that feeling of being the champion, being the best. Nothing can ever replace that.

"This is why I still want to carry on playing, because that hunger is still there to be the best to win trophies for my football club."
