Report plays down AFC Bournemouth, Aston Villa obstacle as 40-year-old linked with managerial vacancy

Published

on

AFC Bournemouth could well turn to Aston Villa as they look to source Jason Tindall’s replacement. 

Tindall has been sacked by the South Coast club after a worrying run of form left Bournemouth looking over their shoulders and at risk of slipping out of the Championship’s top-six.

Right now, it doesn’t appear clear who will come in and replace Tindall.

A report from the Daily Mail has revealed that John Terry is someone who could be considered.

Terry is currently serving as Dean Smith’s assistant at Aston Villa in the Premier League and is still awaiting the right opportunity to step into a leading role in management.

It’s further reported by the Mail that if Bournemouth do settle on making their move to appoint Terry as their new boss, there will be no issues with paying suitable compensation to Aston Villa for the service of the 40-year-old.

Bournemouth sit sixth in the table following a midweek defeat to struggling Sheffield Wednesday, with Middlesbrough starting to close the gap on the Cherries from seventh and now sitting just two points adrift of them.

Jonathan Woodgate has taken temporary charge of things at Bournemouth following Tindall’s exit.

The Verdict

It’d be interesting to see how Terry would get on if he were to take the Bournemouth job.

He’s done a good job at Villa as Smith’s right-hand man. They’ve won promotion and established themselves in the Premier League, with a clear improvement on the defensive side of things.

A job as a manager would clearly appeal to the former Chelsea captain and, if Bournemouth do make their move, it might be too good to turn down.

It’s a decent job to take on.
