John Terry is remaining calm on his future but admits he’s ready to jump in if a managerial job was to come up that he was keen on. 

Terry left Aston Villa in the summer after spending three years as an assistant to manager Dean Smith following the end of his successful playing career. 

The 40-year-old Chelsea academy graduate won five Premier League titles, one Champions league, a Europa League and five FA Cups during his 19 years at Stamford Bridge, making him the most successful captain in the club’s history. 

Having turned to coaching after his retirement, Terry now believes his next job will be as a number one, but is not rushing to jump back into football. 

‘I’m always waiting, but the idea was to step away and spend the year with family and see what comes up,’ he told Sky Sports. ‘You know what it’s like, we’re a month into the season I’m sure jobs will come up and I’m there and waiting and doing what I need to do in the background, but if not, I’m enjoying my time with the family.

‘I love Aston Villa as a football club but I think everyone knew when I went in there I wanted to be a number one and that’s very much at the forefront as I speak.’

Terry is open to returning to management in the coming months.

Terry’s former club Chelsea have started the season off in fine form with two convincing wins against Crystal Palace and Arsenal, followed up by a hard-fought 1-1 draw against Liverpool at Anfield, in a game where they played the entire second half with ten men. 

The Blues are hoping to follow up their Champions League triumph last term, with a challenge for the Premier League title this term. 

Having added striker Romelu Lukaku from Serie A champions Inter Milan and Spanish international midfielder Saul Niguez from Atletico Madrid to their already star-studded squad, Terry believes they have a genuine chance of winning the league for the first time since 2017.
