John Terry Returns to Chelsea: Former Captain Rejoins Club's Academy After Leicester City Stint
John Terry, the former captain of Chelsea, has officially announced his return to the Premier League club's academy after his recent stint as assistant manager at Leicester City.
Following his retirement from professional football, the 42-year-old former England skipper initially rejoined Chelsea in 2022 in a coaching consultancy role. Subsequently, in April of the same year, he joined Dean Smith's coaching staff at Leicester City.
However, with Leicester's unfortunate relegation from the English top flight, Terry's contract was not extended, leading him to make the decision to return to his former club, Chelsea.
Expressing his enthusiasm and happiness about returning to his beloved club, Terry took to Instagram and shared, "I'm delighted to be back home working in the academy and continuing my role at the club." This marks a significant milestone in Terry's coaching career, which commenced in 2018 when he took on the role of assistant manager at Aston Villa.
During his remarkable and illustrious 19-year tenure at Stamford Bridge, Terry, renowned as a former defender and a five-time Premier League champion, achieved an impressive array of victories, having won every major trophy. His exceptional skills and leadership qualities on the field solidified his place as one of Chelsea's most revered and accomplished captains in the club's rich history.
