Aston Villa appoint Smith and Terry as new coaches
Former England captain John Terry took his first steps into coaching on Wednesday when he was named as right-hand man to new Aston Villa boss Dean Smith. The second-tier English club also appointed Jesus Garcia
Pitarch as sporting director as the former European champions moved to replace Steve Bruce who was sacked last week. Terry, 37, who spent the bulk of his career with Chelsea, captained second-tier Aston Villa last season. Capped 78 times by England, the central defender recently rejected a chance to play for Spartak Moscow, saying a move to Russia was not right for his family. His last game as a professional was Villa’s 1-0 Championship play-off final defeat by Fulham in May.
