Chelsea legend John Terry has yet again stated his desire to move into football management after Maurizio Sarri disclosed that he was open to having the former captain as part of his coaching crew
However, there have been no discussions on the possibility although Sarri believes that the 37-year-old defender is eager to play for another season.
John Terry won’t return to Chelsea presently but is currently working with the academy players at the club’s Cobham training ground as he seeks his coaching qualifications.
In a chat with the club’s official app, The 5th stand, Terry said:
“Still undecided what I’m doing next. My end game is to be a manager and that’s what I’m working towards with the younger boys here.”
The defender was highly linked with a move to Spartak Moscow but rejected the move.
He is now a free agent and can choose to join any club that comes for him outside of the transfer window.
On his managerial dreams, he added: “Undecided, but enjoying my time to really concentrate on my badges. It’s what I really want to do.”
Sarri stated that he’s open to Terry’s possible return to the club. He said:
“I am very open with him, because he’s the history of the club. He has won everything with the club, so it’s up to him.
“If he wants to play for another season I think it’s right he tries to play. If he wants to help us, I’m very, very happy.”
