Villa defender John Terry posts insight into coaching-badge training

Aston Villa fans were excited by the arrival of Chelsea legend John Terry in the summer, and after a slow start, the experienced defender has settled into the team.

The 36-year-old has started all 11 Championship games for the Midlands outfit so far, helping the club move up to seventh in the table.

Steve Bruce’s side are unbeaten in eight league matches, so it is safe to say that the team went into the international break in a good mood.

One man who is not relaxing over the next couple of weeks is Terry, who posted an Instagram snap of himself studying for his UEFA licences, of which he has been working on acquiring since 2014.

The defender, who won 15 trophies during his 19-year spell at Chelsea, has been getting help from Jim Hicks, who is the senior executive head of coaching at the PFA.
