The Chelsea captain, John Terry may have played his last match for The Blues following his red card after receiving two yellow cards in the Blues’ shock 3-2 defeat to Sunderland.
Terry faces a two-game ban and will now miss the midweek game with Liverpool and Chelsea’s final home game of the season at Stamford Bridge given that his dismissal is his second of the season.
His expected suspension will prevent him from possibly having a farewell party from the club at home.
The Chelsea captain, who has spent 18 years at the club, donned the club’s home kit to celebrate their victory over Bayern Munich.
Terry is expected to leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season with Chelsea so far failing to offer the 35-year-old a new contract.
After the game Guus Hiddink admitted John Terry’s likely two-match ban was sad for both the club, and the man.
“By rules it’s two games,” said Hiddink,
“It would have been lovely to have the last game at home against the Champions and have a very nice party game; and it’s sad he’s not participating in that.”
Chelsea’s defeat at the Stadium of Light leaves them ninth in the Premier League, six points off the Champions League places.
Jermain Defoe’s winning goal means that Sunderland climb out of the relegation zone with just two games to play.
