Chelsea legend John Terry left the Blues after 22 years among youth teams and first team: yesterday his signing for Aston Villa was announced, with the former Blues skipper admitting he didn’t want to join a Premier League side to not face Chelsea.
Now, Terry admits he would love to return at Stamford Bridge as a manager:
“That’s a goal. Me and Lamps [Frank Lampard] have had those conversations. Do you dream too big? I don’t think you can ever dream too big. I’ve always wanted to be the very best and if that’s in management then Chelsea’s the one. That would be incredible but I realise as well you can’t go in somewhere like Chelsea as your first job.
“You need to go and learn, whether that’s in the academy like Stevie [Gerrard] is doing. It’s difficult to get jobs. I see a lot of players from my generation not walking into jobs that maybe I thought they would get. So I think you need to go out and do your work and put your minutes in on the pitch and make your mistakes that no one sees so that when you do go in, you’re kind of ready.”
