Aston Villa considering John Terry for assistant manager role

Aston Villa are considering appointing former Chelsea and England captain John Terry as their assistant coach.

According to Sky Sports Villa would like Terry to join their back room staff, although it depends if the man who is chosen to take over as manager from the sacked Steve Bruce sanctions his appointment, as the club do not want to force anybody on their new boss.

Arsenal legend and current assistant coach of the Belgium national team Thierry Henry is currently the frontrunner to take over at Villa Park so it would seem that he would have to be open to the idea of working with his former Premier League rival.

Terry played for Villa last season but left the club after their play-off final loss to Fulham last May and he was expected to continue his playing career at another club.

However, the 37-year-old announced his retirement yesterday leading many to speculate that this is to facilitate him joining his former club as a coach.
