Chelsea legend John Terry has been working as an assistant manager to Dean Smith at Aston Villa, right from their time in the Championship, to gaining promotion to the Premier League.

Reports now claim that Championship side Bournemouth are keen to make Chelsea their next manager.

The Cherries recently sacked Jason Tindall from being their manager after four defeats in a row and are looking at some big names to take over.

According to The Athletic, Terry along with ex-Arsenal captain Patrick Vieira and former Huddersfield boss David Wagner are in contention for the job as well.

Former Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is believed to have been linked with the job, but he’s not ready to return to the dugout so quickly, after being sacked by Chelsea.

John Terry has been backed by Harry Redknapp to be a success as a club manager.

“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.”
