Chelsea legend John Terry has confirmed he has taken up a consultancy role with the Chelsea academy.

Terry said: “I’m delighted to announce that I’m coming home, and have taken up a consultancy role with Chelsea academy. As well as delivering on field coaching sessions I will be involved in coaching discussions and mentoring our academy players.”

Chelsea’s statement on Terry’s appointment: “John Terry is returning to Cobham to begin a coaching consultancy role at the Chelsea Academy.

“The Blues legend will work with our young players and coaching staff in our youth development programme, sharing the vast experience gained from his 20-year playing career and recent spell as assistant coach at Aston Villa.

“As well as delivering on-field coaching, our former club captain will contribute to coaching discussions with colleagues, mentor Academy players and support parent dialogue.

“He will begin the role in a part-time capacity at the start of next month.

“This flexibility is beneficial for both John and the Academy, as it allows him to continue to develop his own coaching skills alongside other commitments, while being used optimally within our development programme.”
