John Terry took over after 22 years, goodbye to Chelsea and signed a contract at Aston Villa. Yet the door of Stamford Bridge is not permanently closed.
John Terry (36) played 690 games for the first team of the Blues and scored as a central defender is over 65 times. Last season was his story, however, from: Antonio Conte took David Luiz of PSG back to Stamford Bridge, and bombed him to the new patron of his defense. Also that other old warrior, Branislav Ivanovic, played his basic place to a younger, kwiekere competitor: Marcos Alonso. First Ivanovic (to Zenit), and then Terry were to the exit and pushed. West Ham and Swansea showed concrete interest, but eventually chose the former captain of Chelsea and England for Aston Villa, last year, only thirteenth in the second class. “I could still earn a lot of money at a number of clubs from the Premier League, but I didn’t want to go to a different team against Chelsea in the field. That would not correct feel,” said an emotional Terry. His transfer to Aston Villa was in an original way, announced with a video of a fictional whatsappconversatie between him and the club. It’s typical Terry, who is on the field as a ruthless beast known, but beyond a cheerful, cosy bear. As he proved in his presentation to the new team mates, where he with much bravado the classic Stand By Me by Ben E. King at souls spent.
When The Villans drew Terry a one-year contract, which it is not excluded that already there are arrangements in existence for afterwards. Because the defender wants to coach. His ultimate ambition: ever Chelsea coach, and preferably with a pal Frank Lampard by his side. “With Lamps is about already spoken. I always want the highest, also as a trainer, and you come anyway, to Chelsea. I realize that you hard already on that level can work in your first job as a trainer”, says the eloquent comment of Terry.
