Since retiring from his playing career, Chelsea legend John Terry has been involved in management, howbeit as an assistant to Aston Villa boss Dean Smith.

Terry and Dean are having a formidable partnership, as Villa has improved from their poor form last season and are now having a blast this season, with one of the best defence in the league.

Meanwhile, Harry Redknapp, has backed John Terry to go into club management.

Redknapp who had spells with Bournemouth as a player and a manager, believes Terry would be a great appointment to replace Jason Tindall, who was sacked after just six months in charge of the Cherries.

“Well I think John would be a fantastic manager,” Redknapp told TalkSport.

“I’ve said it from when I first really got to know him and saw how professional he was. Even just being around him at different things I’ve done like charity games, a game at Old Trafford I managed one day when John played.

“His professionalism, everything about him, I just think – given the opportunity – he’d be a really top class manager.

“If I was a chairman looking for a manager now, John Terry would be right there at the top of my list.”
