Terry set to return to Chelsea this summer

Former Chelsea captain John Terry is being heavily linked with a return to Stamford Bridge this summer as a coach.

The 37-year-old left The Blues last summer and is currently playing for promotion chasing Aston Villa in the Championship.

Terry spent 20 seasons with boyhood club Chelsea, and captained the Stamford Bridge club during the most successful period in their history. In total the former England captain made 717 appearances for the Blues, and won the Premier League title on five occasions.

He has always admitted that he would like the chance to manage his beloved Chelsea some day, and according to reports in the Mirror today, he would like the chance to return to the club in a coaching role this summer, with the ultimate aim of working his way up to first-team level.

Despite, not featuring regularly during The Blues Premier League title triumph last season, there are those who feel the experienced centre-back’s leadership qualities have been badly missed around the club during this campaign.
