John Terry has delivered a glowing appraisal of Nottingham Forest after being quizzed on his loan spell during a recent Q&A on Instagram.

The legendary central defender spent a short time at Forest during 1999/2000, making six appearances for the club under David Platt.

Terry had clear talent even back then and he went on to enjoy several trophy-laden years with his boyhood club, Chelsea.

He won five Premier League titles, five FA Cups, three League Cups, one Champions League and also a Europa League crown during his time at Stamford Bridge.

Terry is keen to get himself into management these days and has held a coaching role at Aston Villa in the past.

The former Forest loanee was a teenager when he signed for Forest. He only made a handful of appearances but his quality shone through.

He would remain a two-club man throughout his career; until he opted to sign for Aston Villa for a year at the end of his Chelsea contract.

Terry played a staggering 717 times for Chelsea during his career and also collected 78 England caps.

What has Terry said about his Forest loan?

The former central defender took some time out recently to answer questions from followers of his Instagram page.

One of his followers was keen to ask Terry about his time playing for Forest and he offered a respectable response to the question.

Clearly, Terry remains fond of Forest. He claimed he enjoyed his time at the club and called his stint a great experience.

The Platt era at Forest wasn’t a particularly popular one. Several players were added that weren’t good enough, but Terry did prove a decent load addition.

He showcased a ball-playing ability that was relatively unheard of at the time and it was always evident that he’d go to the very top.
