EPL: John Terry opens up on becoming Chelsea manager
Chelsea legend, John Terry, has opened up on becoming the club’s manager in the near future, saying it is his dream.
Terry spent 19 years playing for Chelsea’s first-team squad after graduating from the club’s youth academy.
The former England international won five Premier League titles and a Champions League crown, among other trophies at Chelsea, before he left Stamford Bridge in 2017 to join Aston Villa.
The former centre-back is back at Stamford Bridge as a coaching consultant, but he hopes to work his way up to the head coaching position in the coming years.
“Yeah, that’s my dream,” Terry told Stadium Astro when asked if his aim is to become Chelsea manager.
“Obviously, when you’re a kid you want to play in the first team. As a coach, I’ve shifted this way now.
“The long-term ambition and goal is to be Chelsea manager, of course. That feels a little bit funny saying that because someone’s in the job and listening, we are still talking 10, 15 years down the line maybe.
“But I have to have an end goal and that’s it. It’s my dream. Hopefully, it happens. I’m in the process of doing that, but a lot of things in between that have to go very well for me.
“So, I’m being very patient in the decisions I’m making in my next step in terms of management.
“But being back at Chelsea is very pleasing for me. It was quite emotional when I first drove in.”
