John Terry has said that his “end goal” is to manage Chelsea, and admits that he would “never” take the Tottenham job.
Currently assistant to Dean Smith at Aston Villa, the former Blues defender has been a great success at Villa Park, helping Tyrone Mings and Ezri Konsa become one of the best defensive partnerships in the Premier League.
Terry has also admitted to declining two job offers from “decent-sized clubs” as he continues to focus on life at Villa.

Speaking to The Times, Terry discussed his future aspirations in the game: “My ambition is very, very clear,” he said.
“There’s an end goal for me and that’s managing Chelsea Football Club. My team will be winning — hopefully — very honest, very organised, very well drilled, very well prepared and with a back four.
“I look at Lamps [Frank Lampard] and Stevie [Gerrard] and the success they’ve both had. Lamps in his first season at Chelsea, and what Stevie’s done up at Rangers is unbelievable.
“l probably wasn’t ready to go into coaching then. I am now. But I’m not just going to jump into anything. I’ve turned down two jobs since I’ve been here.
“Decent-sized clubs. But it’s going to take something special for me to leave here. I’ve got one more year left at Villa. I’m in a privileged position because I’m in no rush. I want to be a No 1 but I’ll get there at some point.”
Spurs are currently in the hunt for a new manager, but it is safe to say that Terry is not the man for the job, saying he would “Never take it,” adding: “Never. Spurs is the only one I wouldn’t take. I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t be welcome at West Ham too.”
This means that Terry will not follow suit with his former boss Jose Mourinho, who was recently sacked by Spurs after two separate spells at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea host Terry and Villa on Sunday as the Premier League season draws to a close.
The Blues are sitting pretty in third after a massive win against Leicester on Tuesday night, and with Villa locked in 11th place with nothing to play for, Thomas Tuchel will be hoping for a comprehensive victory to secure Champions League football next season.
