John Terry: I don't want to leave Chelsea when I finish playing

The Chelsea captain John Terry has said that he wants to manage Chelsea one day. The inspiration comes from the new Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas who is only 33.

Villas-Boas won 3 trophies with Porto last season and has worked under Jose Mourinho. And former player Roberto Di Matteo has also returned in a coaching role.

Speaking in the Daily Mirror Terry said: “They are giving chances to people who have been around the club and who know the club inside out as well. So that tells the players inside the club – myself, Frank Lampard, Didier Drogba and Petr Cech – who have all been here a long time, that if we do our coaching badges then there will be roles here in the future.”.

“What Andre’s achieved is incredible. You do set yourself targets. I have got three years left on my deal and I will be 33 then, but I’m certainly envisaging Andre being in charge here for a long time.”

Chelsea fans will hope that Terry’s ambitions don’t result in tensions between the senior players and the manager as has been suspected to have been the case in previous seasons.
