‘Chelsea legend’ John Terry to face Gerrard… Kim Seung-gyu’s ‘Al Shabab’ appointment could be on the cards

Chelsea legend John Terry has been tipped to become the head coach of Saudi Arabia’s Al Shabab. First, he will face Steve Gerrard, who is the head coach in Saudi Arabia, and then he can coach Korea’s main goalkeeper Kim Seung-gyu.

British media outlet ‘Sky Sports’ reported on July 7 (KST) that “John Terry has concluded verbal talks with Saudi team Al Shabab about taking over as head coach as he looks to make a breakthrough in his coaching career. Terry has been offered a contract ranging from two to four years.”

A former center back, Terry is a Chelsea legend. He came through the youth ranks at Chelsea via West Ham United and made his professional debut at the tender age of 16. By the age of 23, he was named captain. Terry’s best season came in 2004-05, when Jose Mourinho took charge of Chelsea. Chelsea won the Premier League (PL) title that year.

A world-class player, Terry went on to have a stellar career. He won five PL titles with Chelsea, as well as the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League. He also won numerous awards. He was named to the World’s Best 11 five times and won the UEFA Defender of the Year award three times. He was also named captain of the England national team, succeeding David Beckham.먹튀검증

Even when Chelsea was struggling, Terry remained committed to the team. Terry played for Chelsea until 2017. After a loan spell at Aston Villa, he announced his retirement from the game.

Terry began his coaching career with Aston Villa as an assistant coach. He was named head coach and led the team to promotion in the 2018-19 season. He then took up a coaching role at Leicester City as part of Dean Smith’s division, but the club’s relegation forced Terry to step down.

He returned to his parent club over the summer and joined Chelsea as a youth coach, but was linked with a move to Al Shabab. Oil money from the Middle East has been shaking up the European soccer market in recent years. From Ronaldo to Karim Benzema to Neymar, Middle Eastern clubs have been snapping up big-name stars in the past year. Mohamed Salah and Philippe Coutinho continue to receive offers from Saudi Arabia.

The Saudis also have their eye on the managerial ranks. In July, Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard became the first Saudi to manage England at Al Ittifaq. Gerrard spent 17 years at Liverpool as a player. The two have been frequent opponents in the Premier League in the past. If Terry takes over at Al Shabab, we can expect to see a face-off between the two legends.

There could also be a meeting with the South Korean national team. Al Shabab has South Korean international goalkeeper Kim Seung-gyu. After playing in Japan, Kim left for Al Shabab last summer. He played at the World Cup in Qatar, where he was a regular starter for the Ventojo side, and has been a regular since Klinsmann’s arrival. He is also expected to play in the friendly against Wales on Aug. 8.

Al Shabab, meanwhile, have the likes of Atletico Madrid’s Yannick Carrasco, who scored against Team K-League in a friendly in South Korea in July. Despite bolstering their squad with oil money, they are yet to win a game in their opening five matches, drawing two and losing three. The head coach position is currently vacant.
