Verbal Agreement Reached
Former Chelsea and England captain John Terry's dreams of becoming a manager may soon come true as he has reportedly reached a verbal agreement with Saudi club Al-Shabab. Terry is eager to pursue a coaching career in his own right, and this opportunity could be the perfect stepping stone.
Elections are currently taking place at Al-Shabab to establish new directors for the club. One of the four candidates is specifically interested in bringing Terry on board. The former defender has already held meetings with senior executives from the group bidding to take over. These talks, which occurred last month in France, are said to be in an advanced stage.
New Role for Terry
If the takeover bid is successful, Terry could join Al-Shabab as either a coach or a sporting director. The club is currently facing a power vacuum after their former president was deposed. Terry's wealth of experience and knowledge of the game could prove invaluable to the team.
Support from Chelsea
According to sources, Chelsea is unlikely to stand in Terry's way if he decides to embrace this new opportunity. The club is known for supporting their former players in their post-playing careers. With already prominent English figures, such as Steven Gerrard and Robbie Fowler, managing in the Middle East, Terry could join the growing list.
Results of the presidential election at Al-Shabab are expected to be announced next week. Fans and football enthusiasts alike eagerly await the outcome, as Terry's potential arrival could bring a fresh perspective and invigorate the club.
