Chelsea legend faces competition from Henry over Aston Villa boss

Timothy Aiyeku



John Terry

The rivalry for John Terry and Thierry Henry continues as the Chelsea and Arsenal legends battle to take over as Aston Villa manager.

The former Chelsea and Arsenal stars were rivals in their playing days and clashed with much drama. That will continue in another form as they both seek to land the job.

The position is currently empty at Villa after the sack of Steve Bruce and a decision must be made by the club in coming weeks.

Owners Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens are reported to have ordered the club’s new CEO Christian Purslow to secure a befitting manager for the side before October 20 clash against Swansea. This means the process might have begun.

Arsenal legend Henry became the first name to be mentioned as far back as July when the owners newly took over but a deal was not agreed upon despite the fact that the Frenchman left his job as a pundit with Sky Sports.

Also, Terry who played at Villa last season has also made his interest for the job open and he is being considered.

Henry has had more experience especially after serving as an assistant to Belgium manager Roberto Martinez in the Russia 2018 World Cup.
