Chelsea FC have announced via their official website that Gary Cahill has left the club. The defender saw his contract come to an end and chose not to renew after being overlooked by Maurizio Sarri for the 2018/19 season.
Cahill joined Chelsea from Bolton Wanderers back in January 2012. Within six months, Cahill was a Champions League winner with the London side, as they beat Bayern Munich at their home ground to lift the trophy.
The England international then went on to form an impressive partnership at the back with John Terry – a defensive pairing which was heavily used by Jose Mourinho during Chelsea’s title-winning season in 2014-15.
Cahill remained as one of Chelsea’s prime defenders, even when John Terry was shifted to the bench by Antonio Conte. Under the Italian’s first season, the Englishman formed a three-man backline alongside David Luiz and Cesar Azpilicueta, helping the Blues to another title.
He leaves Stamford Bridge after winning two Premier League titles, one UEFA Champions League title, two UEFA Europa League title, two FA Cups, and one Carabao Cup.
