- John Terry is currently the assistant-manager at Premier League club Aston Villa
- The Chelsea legend is gunning for the managerial position at Bristol City
- Lee Johnson was fired at Bristol after guiding the squad to four consecutive losses
Chelsea Legend John Terry is reportedly making efforts to leave relegation-threatened Premier League club Aston Villa to become the new manager at Championship side Bristol City.
Following four-straight losses, manager Lee Johnson was sacked by Bristol City chiefs on Saturday, July 4 as their hopes of reaching the play-offs were dashed.
And according to latest reports from Football Insider, a source was quoted as claiming Terry is in the frame for the top position.
The Chelsea legend has been Dean Smith’s number two at Villa since October 2018. However, the former England captain has made no secret of his managerial ambitions.
Terry was been handed a new deal with Aston Villa until 2021 as his efforts paid-off for the club which eventually gained promotion to the Premier League.
The former Chelsea defender was at the dug out assisting Villa manager Dean Smith during their successful 2018-19 campaign in the Championships.
He was captain of the Upton Park outfit that narrowly missed out on promotion into the English topflight division in the 2017-18 season.
Terry won five Premier League titles, five FA Cups, three League Cups, the Champions League and Europa League with boyhood club Chelsea.
Only recently, he revealed how he learnt one of the biggest life lessons from former Chelsea captain Dennis Wise.
Terry recalls that Wise once grabbed him by the throat after he used his Champions League bonus to buy a car as a youngster player.
It was a bitter pill the former England captain had to swallow but Terry remains grateful for the gesture many years after.
Legit.ng earlier reported that former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte issued a very emotional message practically apologising to former Chelsea captain Terry for phasing him out of the club.
Terry dropped down the pecking order under the Italian tactician who made his debut season at the Stamford Bridge side during the 2016/2017 a season.
Conte preferred to start Gary Cahill and David Luiz in the Chelsea defence ahead of the then club captain.
