John Terry. Leave to return

John Terry. Leave to return John Terry decided to hang the shoes on a nail. After the 37-year-old football player refused to go to Spartak Moscow, his decision to “tie up” with active performances does not seem unexpected. Rather, the opposite is true. The demand for this footballer among the “powerful people” is long gone, and Terry himself is not out of hand to pass the time in the Championship.
