Chelsea legend John Terry has been named captain of Aston Villa in what will be his first season at Villa Park.
The legendary Chelsea man will continue his captain status despite just joining Aston Villa this summer.
The club confirmed Terry’s elite status in a social media post, saying he would wear the armband in their friendly today against Shrewsbury Town. Terry replaces former captains James Chester and Tommy Elphick as the man to lead the team out of the tunnel.
