Former Aston Villa and Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo believes Terry has the credentials to step into club management in the coming years. The 38-year-old had been linked with the Newcastle United job earlier this summer but ultimately a deal did not materialise with the Magpies opting to go with Steve Bruce instead.
As a result, Terry continues to remain the deputy to Villains boss Dean Smith but Di Matteo feels the former centre-back will ultimately become the head coach at some club, he said: “If you can sign JT, you get him. He’s a guy who makes things easier for the manager. He, too, will be there as a manager in the future. As a player, he was writing down some of the sessions and he’s now gained so much experience from the managers he’s worked under.”
