On an emotional May afternoon, having collected the Premier League 2016 / 2017 trophy, John Terry, after a glittering Chelsea career, bid farewell to the club.
With his contract up and knowing his time as part of the fixtures and fittings at Stamford Bridge was over, John Terry cleared his locker and officially left Chelsea Football Club.
However, John wasn’t quite ready to quit playing and took on the challenge of trying to help Aston Villa back into the Premier League.
It was something that almost happened with John helping the club to the Championship Play-Off Final against Fulham, at Wembley.
Unfortunately, Villa were to fall at the final hurdle as our near-neighbours won 1-0, courtesy of a goal from Tom Cairney.
With his one-year deal at Villa Park completed, it looked, at one stage, as if John might be teaming up with his great friend Frank Lampard, at Derby County.
But, that now doesn’t appear to be the case with the popular tabloid publication, the Mirror, reporting that John is set to hang up his boots and retire from playing.
However, it doesn’t look as if John is just going to retire and fade away into the background.
Although the suggestion has been bandied about that John could move into management, it seems as if a different scenario is set to develop.
Our referenced source is reporting that John could be set to step into the void left by the departure of Thierry Henry from the Sky Sports punditry team.
Now whether that would permanently curtail any dreams of moving into management or temporarily put them on hold remains to be seen.
However, here at Vital Chelsea, we’re of the opinion that John would make an excellent pundit with his vast knowledge of the game.
How about you?
