John Terry Leaves Aston Villa.
John Terry, the legendary Chelsea center-half, was signed at Villa Park as a player in 2017 before returning as an assistant head coach a year later.
In that period of time, Villa won promotion from the Championship to the Premier League, avoided relegation in their first season back in the top-flight before finishing 11th last season. However, Terry – who has been linked with Swansea –confirmed he wants to pursue a managerial role of his own in the near future.‘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,’ said Terry, 40.‘I want to be as respectful to the manager and everyone at Aston Villa as I can and have given my future serious consideration over the summer, I genuinely don’t feel it is fair to move into a new season without being certain of seeing that through.
‘And I will forever be indebted to the Gaffer for giving me the opportunity to start my coaching career at such a wonderful club. I have loved every minute of it and learnt so much.
‘I can’t thank Dean enough for the support and guidance he has provided me with and I’m sure he will continue to lead the club from strength to strength.
‘Finally, I would also like to thank all the players and staff and wish them all the very best for the season ahead and say a huge thank you to the wonderful Aston Villa fans for their support.’
Villa boss Smith said:‘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.’
