John Terry: Aston Villa assistant head coach leaves club

John Terry revealed that he has left his role as Aston Villa assistant coach to Dean Smith after spending three years in the role. The former Chelsea captain had joined Aston Villa as a player in 2017. He played the entire season for the Villains before becoming the assistant coach the following season.

“It has been a tremendous honour and privilege to have spent these last three years at Aston Villa, but I feel now is the right time to make the extremely difficult decision to move on.” John Terry said after leaving the role of assistant head coach of Aston Villa. “I want to be as respectful to the manager and everyone at Aston Villa as I can and, having given my future serious consideration over the summer, I genuinely don’t feel it is fair to move into a new season without being certain of seeing that through.”

“My immediate plan is to spend some quality time with my family and, thereafter, hopefully, take up some invitations to visit clubs and managers around Europe to develop my aim and objective of becoming a manager,” he added. “It has always been my ambition to move into football management and, providing the right opportunity presents itself, I feel ready to take up such a challenge.”

Terry and Smith helped Aston villa gain promotion back to the Premier League in 2019. They were relegated from the Premier League three years prior to that. The following season they survived relegation before finishing eleventh in the last campaign.

“I’m disappointed to lose John as part of my coaching staff but fully understand and respect his decision.” Aston Villa boss Dean Smith said. “John has played a huge role in the success the club has enjoyed over the last few years and has been very supportive of me throughout that period. I have no doubts he will go on to be a first-class manager in his own right and wish him well for the future.”
