John Terry would love to rejoin his former club Chelsea if the opportunity arose, according to the Daily Telegraph.
They report that Terry has been making a conscious effort to make himself more visible around Chelsea in recent weeks, amid uncertainty over the future of Maurizio Sarri at Stamford Bridge.
It reportedly remains to be seen whether the Blues would be willing to bring him back but the report says that Terry would ‘jump at the chance’ to go if the opportunity did arise.
But for the time being, Terry remains assistant manager to Dean Smith at Aston Villa but the Villans’ play-off push is in need of a boost after slipping off the pace in recent weeks.
Terry’s connection with Chelsea has always been strong but it may perhaps not go down too well with the Villa fans that he is slowly moving himself into position to go back to the Bridge if a change is made.
Especially not while Villa are struggling and facing a critical stage of their season; but there are no guarantees that Terry will get his move back to west London.
The success of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United will get clubs across the country thinking about bringing club legends back in to reverse their fortunes, and the presence of Frank Lampard as a manager at Derby – Villa’s next opponents – presents the tantalising prospect that the former team-mates could be reunited in the dugout.
