Terry is unlikely to be returning to Stamford Bridge, for now, but he is working with the academy players at Chelsea’s Cobham training ground as he seeks his coaching qualifications, with a long-term target in mind.
Terry, who turns 38 in December, said: “Still undecided what I’m doing next. My end game is to be a manager and that’s what I’m working towards with the younger boys here.”
“Good seven weeks with the family, which is the first time in 22 years. Some real quality time.
“Just really important to switch off after my career and reflect on things.
“I was training every day. I wanted to stay fit in case something came along. I’m still waiting.
“Undecided, but enjoying my time to really concentrate on my badges. It’s what I really want to do.”
