Terry Considers Move to Saudi Pro-League Side

John Terry, the former captain of Chelsea, has confirmed that he has been in discussions about joining Saudi Pro-League side Al-Shabab. The 42-year-old is currently waiting for the results of the presidential elections at the club to determine what role he could be offered. This news comes as Terry explores his pathway towards management, after previously working as a coach at Aston Villa and Leicester City.

Presidential Elections Decision Crucial

According to SunSport, Terry was approached by Al-Shabab and flew to France last month to meet with officials. The voting papers for the presidential elections have already been distributed, with four candidates vying for the position. The outcome is expected to be announced in the coming days, depending on the result of the first round of voting. At least one of the interested parties wants Terry to have a senior role in the club, potentially as a sporting director responsible for recruitment.

Terry's Desires for a Managerial Role

John Terry has expressed his eagerness to become a full-fledged manager, following in the footsteps of his former England teammates Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard. While he did not achieve his dream role of becoming a first-team coach at Al-Shabab immediately, there is a possibility that he could take on a coaching role down the line.

Alumni Success at Al-Shabab

The Saudi Pro-League side already boasts two prominent alumni from England: Steven Gerrard and Robbie Fowler. Gerrard is currently the boss of Al-Ettifaq, while Fowler holds the position of head coach at Al-Qadsiah. If Terry were to join Al-Shabab, he would add to the growing list of former English players making their mark in Saudi Arabian football.

The results of the presidential election at Al-Shabab are expected to emerge in the next week, bringing clarity to Terry's potential role at the club.
