Benitez sees future Blues manager in skipper John Terry

Interim Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez believes that the club’s veteran defender John Terry has the right qualities to manage the West London club in the future. Terry had earlier expressed a desire to move into a coaching role eventually and Benitez’s backing would be welcomed by the Englishman.

Benitez was quoted by the Sun as saying, “He [Terry] likes taking about tactics. He seems as though he understands and, with the way he treats the young players and takes care of them, it is quite possible he has the good qualities to become a manager.”

Terry is known for his legendary status at the club and it has been claimed that the defender has often overshadowed managers at the club. The former English international has held the armband at Chelsea for eight seasons now and managers over the years have hailed the Englishman’s leadership skills. Moreover, the 32 year-old is on good terms with the club’s owner Roman Abramovich and the Russian would consider the opportunity to give Terry a chance at Stamford Bridge when he pulls the curtain down on his playing career.

The defender has played just one game under Benitez’s reign and he is expected to make a start against Brentford in the FA Cup this weekend. Chelsea fans have always adored their captain and they will certainly be pleased to see the Englishman at the helm of the club in the future.
