Terry announces retirement, set to become Henry’s assistant at Aston Villa

The pair won two Premier League titles together, as well as the League Cup. Terry, who was without a club since leaving Championship side Aston Villa earlier this year, took to his official Instagram handle to break the news of his retirement.

Terry continues to be linked with a switch back to Villa Park to assist Thierry Henry in a new management team following the dismissal of Steve Bruce.

But one name in the frame who has yet to gain as much exposure as the likes of Henry and Terry is Rui Faria.

According to reports, both men interviewed for the role, with the Villa hierarchy deciding that Henry's experience was enough to warrant his appointment as manager.

John Terry has announced his retirement from playing football in a social media post on Sunday.

The Belgian camp are said to be confident Henry will remain in their set-up despite Aston Villa upping their interest in the 41-year-old.

"I look forward to the next chapter in my life and the challenges ahead".

He was also the all-time highest scoring defender.
