Former Chelsea captain John Terry has insisted that he would never manage Tottenham Hotspur and revealed that it is his aim in the future to return to the dugout at Stamford Bridge.
Terry’s name is sung by Tottenham Hotspur fans on almost every match day with the North London faithful claiming that even with just ‘one knee’, their former central defender and club legend Ledley King was better than the Chelsea counterpart.
The 40-year-old is currently part of the backroom staff under Dean Smith at Aston Villa and was in the dugout when the Villains derailed Tottenham’s Europa League hopes in midweek.
Tottenham are currently on the search for a new head coach following Daniel Levy’s decision to sack Jose Mourinho last month.
Terry revealed that he has absolutely no desire to follow in the footsteps of his former Portuguese boss by stressing in an interview with The Times that he is “always going to hate Tottenham”.
When asked if he would take up the role at Spurs, he said: “Never take it. Never. Spurs is the only one I wouldn’t take. I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t be welcome at West Ham too.”
