John Terry, a name synonymous with Chelsea FC's glorious history, has been quietly honing his managerial skills since hanging up his boots. After stints with Aston Villa and Leicester City, Terry's journey led him back to Stamford Bridge, where he played a pivotal role in nurturing young talent within Chelsea's academy. However, the time has come for him to take on the ultimate challenge - leading a football team from the front.

Al Shabab's Ambitious Aspirations


Al Shabab, based in the vibrant city of Riyadh, is making waves in the Saudi Pro League. Despite not enjoying the financial backing of some of the league's giants, they are determined to elevate their status. The recent acquisition of Belgian sensation Yannick Carrasco speaks volumes about their ambition. Now, they are aiming to secure the services of none other than John Terry to propel them to greater heights.

Behind the scenes, a familiar face has been instrumental in orchestrating this potential deal. Former Chelsea director of football, Michael Emanalo, who now plays a key role in shaping the Saudi Pro League, has played a pivotal part in laying the groundwork for Terry's arrival. Emanalo's expertise and understanding of Terry's capabilities have paved the way for this exciting development.

While Terry had previously expressed reservations about taking up a managerial role, his recent journey through the coaching ranks has evidently fueled his ambition. In April, he admitted, "I always see myself as a coach long-term." Despite facing setbacks in his pursuit of top managerial roles, Terry's determination to succeed in the world of football management has never wavered.
