Chelsea legend John Terry to retire as Sky Sports try to lure him away from coaching career

John Terry

The Chelsea legend, 37, spent last season at crisis club Aston Villa but left in May after failing to win promotion.

Lohn Terry spent 19 years playing for Chelsea before leaving for a new challenge And according to the Sunday Mirror, JT will hang up his boots this summer to end a 20-year career as a pro.

 Terry has long been known to fancy going into management once he quits playing footie.

 But the Mirror’s report adds that Sky Sports have made an approach top bring him in as a pundit.

 Thierry Henry has left the broadcaster to follow his own managering career.

He has been back at old haunt Cobham to train with the Blues this summer and posted a video of himself with Welsh whizkid Ethan Ampadu and Chelsea Women’s winger Karen Carney.

 Reports have suggested Terry could be owed £560,000 in wages by the cash-strapped Villans if he retires.

 According to The Times Villa may be liable for an additional month of wages on his £70,000-a-week packet due to a little-known rule.

 The Professional Football Negotiating and Consultative Committee, which represents the Premier League, FA, EFL and PFA – introduced the scheme for players who have been released by a club.

 And the financially-struggling Championship side could owe Terry his June and July pay-packets, worth a princely £280,000-a-pop.
