Chelsea legend John Terry has spoken on his new coaching role at Aston Villa which starts immediately.

The former Chelsea legend was appointed as an assistant to Dean Smith to take over from Steve Bruce at the club.

Terry has expressed his delight as he claims to be honoured handling a club he has great memories.

Dean Smith was announced as new manager of the club and the Chelsea legend who just retired from active football last week was asked to assist him on the job.

Terry had played in the same club under Steve Bruce and was in the game that lost to Fulham by 1-0 in the championship playoff.

He, however, said he is looking forward to his first day on the coaching job as he faces his major test against Swansea on Saturday, October 20.

Terry is reported to have studied his coaching course and earned his badges when he was a Chelsea player and had a test on the job last week when he managed a youth team game at Cobham.

Former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry was earlier linked to the job but he was reported to have walked out of the offer as he looks to take over at Monaco.
