John Terry could become Chelsea boss in the future, reckons ex-Premier League boss

first_imgHarry Redknapp believes Chelsea will be losing an invaluable player in the dressing room at the end of the season when John Terry leaves the club.The player, 35, has decided to exit Stamford Bridge once the current campaign finishes and his contract runs out.But Redknapp reckons the centre-back still has value as an experienced leader and should have been kept on by the Blues for another year, even if he wasn’t playing week in, week out.He told Drivetime: “John Terry is the finest captain, along with Tony Adams, since Bobby Moore, in the English game.“He’ll be a massive loss when he leaves Chelsea. Eventually it’s got to come to an end. He can’t play forever but I think he’s such a leader and such a winner [he could play on].“The lad Kurt Zouma has come into the team and been playing alongside him, learning the game and learning off of John. It’s invaluable even if he doesn’t play every week next year.“At least the young players in the team [can learn from him]. He’s a talker, he’s an organiser, he could teach the young lads so much about the game.”And, in the future, Redknapp believes Terry could eventually take charge of Chelsea.“I don’t see why John couldn’t [be a manager],” he added.“Given the opportunity and with the right people around him, someone like Ray Wilkins to work alongside him and help him through his first managerial job.“I don’t see why he couldn’t manage Chelsea, personally.”last_img
