John Terry: ‘I want to become a manager because of Jose Mourinho’

Chelsea legend John Terry has revealed that his decision to gain coaching badges was made when Jose Mourinho took over at Stamford Bridge.


“I was quite young when Jose Mourinho first came into Chelsea. Only 23 but after a few training sessions, I went and got a notepad and started jotting stuff down,” Terry told The Coaches’ Voice.

“Things he said in team meetings, things he said before a game, or to the press. Sometimes I’d come in after a training session and write down everything we’d just done.

“From the moment Jose came in, I knew I wanted to be a coach.”
