Terry, who is leaving Chelsea after 22 years when his contract expires, insisted no decision had been made and stated that retirement could even be an option in the aftermath of the dramatic 4-3 win over Watford - a match in which he scored the opening goal.
Antonio Conte's Chelsea have cruised to the Premier League title in stunning fashion, sweeping all before them to win it very comfortably.
Watford boss Walter Mazzarri said: "Tomorrow I will investigate, but I don't think it was anything".
The Hornets scored away from home in the league for the first time since January and the win at Arsenal, but Chelsea triumphed as Cesc Fabregas scored two minutes from time.
"What an unbelievable feeling and, believe me, it just gets better and better", he wrote in his programme notes for the Watford match.
But it has certainly served me well for the future when hopefully one day I become a manager.
It capped a brilliant first season for Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge following his arrival at the club as Jose Mourinho's permanent successor last summer.
"I have a plan in my head to play the final", Conte said. "I think this is great, a great achievement", he said.
However after Monday's insane 4-3 win against Watford, John Terry hinted that he will not play again after the season ends this weekend.
'When you have the opportunity to go with the national team it's a fantastic opportunity, I know this very well.
"John helped me a lot in my first season, on and off the pitch".
After securing the title last Friday night, the Italian manager says the record is something that will keep his side concentrated during their final game of the season.
That is the next target for Terry, who expects an emotional conclusion to his Chelsea career.
"It has been a new experience but one I have kind of enjoyed".
Twenty-nine games have already been won, and Conte hailed that as a "great, great achievement", but still wants more. This is the right final for John.
"It will be a hard game against a fantastic team, so we need to be at a high level".
"The youth team completed a double of their own, adding the Under-18 Premier League title to a sixth FA Youth Cup in eight years".
"No, he should absolutely not retire", Conte added.
But according to Gary Neville, Jose Mourinho has enjoyed an even better Chelsea team than the one now being overseen by Conte.
