"He plays a massive part in the squad," Terry told This Is London. "He has always made me feel welcome and still does that with everyone now.
"His performances, whether they be for LA Galaxy or AC Milan, have been brilliant and he has been great for England as well.
"Whether he has started the game or come on as a substitute he has done fantastically well.
"He trains extremely hard and is a great
example for everyone in the squad.
"He also passes on advice at
half-time and plays a key role."
The 34-year-old has received a record 114 international caps to date.
