Ex-Chelsea captain, John Terry, has expressed his delight to be “coming home”, as he takes up a part-time consultancy role at the Blues’ academy.
After spending three years as an assistant coach at Aston Villa, Terry is now set to return to work with Chelsea’s youngsters.
The 41-year-old enjoyed an illustrious 19-year stint at Stamford Bridge, making 717 senior appearances and winning 15 major trophies including five Premier League titles, five FA Cups and the Champions League.
“I’m delighted to announce that I’m coming home and have taken up a consultancy role @ChelseaFC academy.
“As well as delivering on-field coaching sessions I will be involved in coaching discussions and mentoring our academy players,” Terry wrote on Twitter.
Terry is expected to “work with our young players and coaching staff in our youth development programme, sharing the vast experience gained from his 20-year playing career and recent spell as an assistant coach at Aston Villa”, an official club statement had indicated.
