7 Premier League legends who can become intriguing managers
#2 John Terry
'Captain, leader, legend' as a phrase was not simply a myth when it was attributed to John Terry and such strong words definitely imply that he's a natural leader, perfectly suited to proceed ahead to lead a team.
Till last year, John Terry was a crucial centre-back for Aston Villa, trying ever so hard to get them promoted but Fulham spoiled their plans. Villa have suffered this season and the sacking of Steve Bruce paved the way for Terry getting into the managerial scene, this time as an assistant to Dean Smith.
Much of the decisions is of course left to the manager but there's a whole load of experience that will be gained as an assistant. One thing that can also be noted in Terry's favour is that he's worked under so many managers at Chelsea as the club was never shy of chopping and changing and part of the experience stems from there as well.
Aston Villa is a new beginning in his life and the path is laid out for him to proceed from here and become a future Premier League manager.Modified 20 Dec 2019, 19:30 IST
