Terry Makes Managerial Breakthrough in Saudi Arabia

John Terry, the legendary Chelsea player, is on the brink of joining Saudi Arabian club Al-Shabbab as its new manager, marking an important breakthrough in his managerial career. Talks between Terry and the Pro-League club have been fruitful, and a verbal agreement for the stunning deal has already been reached.

Exodus of Premier League Legends to Saudi Arabia

If the deal is finalized, Terry, a one-time England captain, will be part of the growing number of Premier League legends making their way to the Middle Eastern country. Currently, 42 years old, the Chelsea icon was approached by Al-Shabbab bosses about a month ago and offered a contract of at least two years, potentially extending to four years.

Terry's Chelsea Departure

Despite the blow to Chelsea, the club has publicly stated that it will not stand in Terry's way as a mark of respect for his long-standing service. He has been part of the team for almost two decades and is currently working as a consultant in the Chelsea academy on a one-year deal.

Al-Shabbab's Ambitions

Although Al-Shabbab is not considered one of the main players in the Saudi League, the club has ambitious plans. Terry's coaching credentials and reputation are seen as valuable assets that can attract more star names to the team and help build it up.

Impressive Playing Career and Coaching Aspirations

Terry holds the title of the most successful player in Chelsea's history, with an impressive trophy haul, including five Premier League titles, the Champions League, and five FA Cups. He appeared in 717 games for Chelsea before retiring. Since then, he has been determined to transition into coaching and management but has faced challenges in securing a senior job. Terry was most recently working under Dean Smith at Leicester and Aston Villa but aspires to become a coach in his own right.

Notable Names in Saudi Arabia

Terry's former England teammate Steven Gerrard is already managing Al-Ettifaq in Saudi Arabia, while ex-Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler is in charge of Al-Qadsiah. Additionally, several top-name players, including Chelsea's N'Golo Kante, Edouard Mendy, and Kalidou Koulibaly, have made the move to the Saudi League this summer.
