A recent report in the Telegraph has suggested that if offered a role at Chelsea, Aston Villa coach John Terry would ‘jump’ at the chance to move there.
The former defender retired from playing at the start of this season and moved into a coaching role at his final club – the Villans – when Dean Smith was appointed as manager.
He’s gradually learning the ropes, then, but if the Blues come calling – with speculation persisting over Maurizio Sarri – then he could well jump ship to go back to what has always been his club.
And, with that in mind, would Tammy Abraham want to work under him at Chelsea rather than stay at Villa?
Abraham has had a fine season for the Villans goal-scoring wise but he’ll surely want another crack at the Premier League soon.
Whether that is with Chelsea, of course, is up for debate but it does seem possible that, having seen first-hand in games and training what he can do, that Terry would want to give him a go – or at least push for it as a coach at Stamford Bridge.
Villa, of course, will want to keep the striker past this season given the goals he has brought and until Terry leaves – if he does – this won’t even come into their reckoning.
If he does move back to the Blues, though, it’ll be interesting to see what exactly what transpires.
