Swansea City are eyeing up Chelsea and England legend John Terry to fill the managerial vacancy at the Liberty Stadium with Jody Morris as his assistant, a source has exclusively revealed to Football League World.
Terry, a five-time winner of the Premier League as a player and also a winner of the UEFA Champions League, is yet to take on a head coach role but has been assistant to Dean Smith at Aston Villa since 2018 following his retirement from playing.
The 40-year-old has been linked with a number of jobs in recent times but he could be set to step into the hots-seat for the very first time in South Wales.
And it’s believed that if Terry were to arrive at the Liberty Stadium, another former Blues man would come in as his assistant in Morris.
22 things all Swansea City fans simply must know – But do you?
Morris managed Chelsea’s under-18’s between 2014 and 2018 before moving on to Derby County to become Frank Lampard’s assistant, but he hasn’t held a coaching role since Lampard departed Chelsea earlier this year.
Swansea are keen to appoint someone who will play attractive football and be willing to use young players, according to The Athletic, and whilst Terry may not have much experience his links to top Premier League clubs could see him as an ideal candidate amongst the Swansea hierarchy.
