FA could hand John Terry shock role with England


John Terry is already having to think about his next move with just six months left on his Chelsea contract.

The 36-year-old has spent close to his entire career at Stamford Bridge, but with Antonio Conte re-shaping his defence, it seems this could finally be JT’s curtain-call.

Terry is one of a number of former Premier League stars who are looking to get into coaching after hanging up their boots, and it seems he could be heading for a reunion with ex-England pals Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard.

The Sun report that the FA could ask Terry to help new national boss Gareth Southgate coach and inspire young players, though it’s unclear whether this would be in any official capacity.


It would be a remarkable turnaround for the ageing centre-back, who was stripped of the England captaincy four years ago while he was awaiting his trial for allegedly racially abusing Anton Ferdinand during QPR vs Chelsea.

Terry later retired from the Three Lions after being left disappointed that the FA hadn’t backed him, especially once he was found not guilty in court.

Nonetheless, he was still charged by the footballing authorities, so any decision to bring him back into the fold is going to raise quite a few eyebrows if it goes ahead.
