Former England captain John Terry announced his retirement from football on Sunday with the 37-year-old central defender now set to pursue a career in management.

Terry, who spent the bulk of his career with Chelsea, captained second-tier Aston Villa last season and the Birmingham club reportedly now want him to join their coaching staff as part of a new-look set-up after they sacked manager Steve Bruce earlier this week.

“After 23 incredible years as a footballer, I have decided now is the right time to retire from playing,” Terry said in a message posted on his Instagram account.
