Chelsea legendary captain in contention to be player/manager in Denmark

Chelsea captain and legend John Terry is set to leave the club at the end of the season and is now in contention to become the player/manager at Danish side Brondby, according to reports from the Mirror.

Terry is a friend of Brondby owner Jan Bech Anderson, and their relationship is set to see him offered a quick route into club management when his contract with the Blues expires in the summer.

Many fans and teammates are calling the club to extend Terry’s deal at Stamford Bridge, but Anderson has sounded the former England international to take the reign from interim manager Aurelijus Skarbalius at the end of the campaign.

And Terry is set to be given a large amount of transfer funds to help his cause, with the likes of former Liverpool ace Daniel Agger already at the club.

However, the Danish side will face competition from Al-Arabi, as former Chelsea teammate Gianfranco Zola has revealed his intention to bring the 35-year-old to the Middle East.

Terry has made 30 appearances in all competitions this term, scoring one goal.
