Chelsea legend John Terry could be fast-tracked into coaching following his retirement from professional football.
Terry announced his retirement on Sunday evening. The news was followed by emotional tributes from across the footballing world. He was one of the best, and there will never be another like him, his retirement is a huge loss.
However, just because he’s hung up his boots, it doesn’t necessarily mean that he’ll fade into oblivion. If the Daily Mail are to be believed, Terry might not go away at all.
The report claims that Terry could be set to return to Aston Villa as assistant manager, with former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry being appointed Steve Bruce’s successor.
This is a piece of news we only ever imagined we’d be seeing on Football Manager, but it could soon become reality. His retirement has ‘coincidentally’ coincided with this report. We don’t believe it’s any coincidence at all. Terry may be heading back to Villa Park.
Could we see him on the touchline at Stamford Bridge one day? It’s something that everyone would love to see. He’s got competition in Frank Lampard for the role, though! He has work to do.
The ex-Chelsea star is as short as 4/5 across Android and iPhone betting apps to be named the next Aston Villa manager, and has been the odds on favourite for most of the past week.
