John Terry has told Frank Lampard and Chelsea “see you soon” after Aston Villa’s game with his former club was postponed following the outbreak of coronavirus.
The Villa assistant boss was looking forward to reuniting with his former teammate and Blues boss on the sidelines this weekend.
But, along with all other Premier League fixtures and most games around Europe, the Villa Park clash has been postponed for now.
Most of the UK and many other countries in Europe are now on lockdown as fears over the virus heighten.
Games have been cancelled until April 4 as things stand but this date could change if the outbreak gets worse.
John Terry has sent a message to Frank Lampard and Chelsea after Aston Villa’s game with the Blues was postponed
Terry will surely have been looking forward to coming up against his former employers and posted a message to them on social media.
“Game Off. See you soon @franklampard @chelseafc,” his Instagram message read.
Chelsea ran out 2-1 winners when Villa visited Stamford Bridge in December and remain in the top four spots of the Premier League.
As things stand Terry’s Villa are in the relegation zone and are in grave danger of going down.
With the uncertainty surrounding the remaining fixtures this season though there is no knowing what might happen.
Chelsea remain fourth in the Premier League table but have been hanging on to that position in recent weeks.
Lampard has done sterling work in his first full season in charge of the Blues and would love to help them to Champions League qualification for next season.
All eyes will be on an emergency Premier League meeting set to take place on Thursday when football chiefs will decide what happens next.
