‘I Want To Become A Football Manager’ – Retired John Terry Says

John Terry has told Sky Sports News he wants to be a manager “in the long run” but refused to comment on reports linking him with the Aston Villa vacancy.

The 37-year-old former England defender announced his retirement on Monday following a trophy-laden career as a player, which ended at Aston Villa.

The Sky Bet Championship club have been without a manager since sacking Steve Bruce last week and Terry has been listed as one of his potential successors.

“I’m ready for the next chapter in my life,” he said. “Let’s see what the future brings. Hopefully it brings half the success I had as a player.
