John Terry: Yes, I want to manage Chelsea

Chelsea legend John Terry admits he wants to manage the club.

Terry says he intends to play on this season.

But he also told the Daily Mail: "Yes, it's true, I want to be the manager of Chelsea one day but that is a five- to eight-year plan.

"I have the voice of Ray Wilkins, who was such a brilliant man to me, in my mind. He missed playing every day after he retired and he told me, 'John, play as long as you can, don't close that door until you have to'."

Terry continued: "I've shown I'm not scared of taking a step back. It's why I went to play in the Championship because I didn't want anyone to think that I didn't know about life outside the Premier League. Well, I do now.

"I see what Frank Lampard has done at Derby and what Stevie G is doing at Rangers and I want a piece of that, too. They've gone into big jobs. I've always had a fascination with management and coaching."
