Former Chelsea and England skipper John terry has left his role as villa assistant head coach after three years.
The 40 years old blue legend joined Aston villa as a player from Chelsea in 2017 where he played 32 games for the team before becoming an assistant to Dean Smith in 2018/2019 season.
The Ex-England international has decided to leave the club to move on in pursuit of another challenge after 3 years.
Terry talks of his plan to be in management hence it’s needed to gather some suitable experience across Europe so as to develop into becoming a manager in the future.
According to club’s official website, Terry was quoted saying “it has been a tremendous honour and privilege to have spent these last three years at Aston villa, but I feel now is the right time to make the extremely difficult decision to move on“.
My immediate plan is to spend quality time with my family and thereafter, hopefully take up some invitation to visit clubs and manager around Europe to develop my aim and objective of becoming manager.
It has always been my ambition to move into football management and providing the right opportunity present itself, I feel ready to take up such a challenge.” he said.
However, Aston Villa manager Dean Smith was as well disappointed in loosing Terry has his contribution to the team promotion into the premier league was immensely huge.
“I’m disappointed to lose John as part of my coaching staff but fully understand and respect his decision.
John has played a huge role in the success the club has enjoyed over the last few years and has been very supportive of myself throughout that period.
I have no doubts he will go on to be a first-class manager in his own right and wish him well for the future“. Smith concluded.
