Legend John Terry announces retirement from football, may become manager

'As a 14-year-old, I made my best and biggest decision: to sign for Chelsea Football Club.

"After 23 incredible years as a footballer, I have decided now is the right time for me to retire from playing", Terry said. He was the club's most successful captain.

The former England and Chelsea captain has called it a day as a player as he gets set to make his first moves into management by becoming Thierry Henry's assistant at Aston Villa.

As the key cog in Chelsea's resurgence after its 2003 takeover by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, Terry also won the Premier League five times, the FA Cup five times, and the League Cup on three occasions.

Last week, he helped prepare Chelsea U19s for a UEFA Youth League match against Danish club Molde that they went on to win 10-1, and he is reportedly set to return to Villa as assistant to Arsenal legend Thierry Henry.

According to reports in the United Kingdom media, Terry may now pick up a managerial role at Aston Villa.

Terry, who earned 78 England caps, left Chelsea in 2017 after 19 seasons at the London club.

On the continent, he collected the Champions League in 2012, despite being suspended for the final, and the Europa League the following year. It was a privilege to represent such a renowned football club with great fans.

He made 717 appearances for Chelsea, scoring 67 times, before joining Villa after leaving Stamford Bridge in 2017, playing 36 games for the club.

"I look forward to the next chapter in my life and the challenges ahead".

With both men allegedly interested in taking up the top job at Villa Park, it is believed that Henry's greater experience worked in his favour.

Terry had captained the club last season, when they reached the play-offs but failed to achieve promotion, and himself interviewed for the job of replacing Bruce.
