Terry to start Chelsea academy consultancy role in January

Former Chelsea Captain, John Terry will begin working with the club’s academy in January in a consultancy role.

Terry, who won 17 trophies over a glittering 19-year career at Stamford Bridge, has been out of work after leaving Aston Villa on the eve of the new season. This was in order to pursue a managerial career.

But that has yet to come to fruition and the 41-year-old has agreed to return to his boyhood club in a part-time position.

This is where he will combine an on-field coaching role with mentoring of the club’s academy players.

“I’m delighted to announce that I’m coming home, and have taken up a consultancy role @ChelseaFC academy,” Terry tweeted.

“As well as delivering on-field coaching sessions, I will be involved in coaching discussions and mentoring our academy players.”

Terry, who joined the club as a 14-year-old, made 717 appearances, 500 of them as captain, and won five English Premier League (EPL) titles and a UEFA Champions League.

He left in 2017 to join Aston Villa where he went on to become Dean Smith’s assistant before leaving in July in the hope of landing a managerial position.
