Aston Villa assistant coach John Terry not thinking about manager job

Aston Villa assistant coach John Terry says he's happy in his current job.

The former Chelsea captain decided to extend his stay at Villa Park this summer, signing a new two-year deal to remain as manager Dean Smith's right-hand man.

Asked if he wants to be the main man in the dugout now, Terry replied: “Not yet. I'm happy. I have just signed a new contract.

“I'm really glad about what I have done in coming in and learning under someone like Dean at a big club like Aston Villa.

“For me, when the time is right, clearly I want to be a manager. Villa know that and Dean knows that as well but I am thoroughly enjoying learning from and watching Dean on a daily basis. I'm learning every single day."
