Newcastle have held talks with another former England star over vacant job – The Telegraph

According to The Telegraph, Newcastle United’s new owners have held discussions with John Terry over the vacant job at St James’ Park.

The former England captain left his role as Aston Villa’s assistant coach over the summer, with him believed to be eyeing a move into management.

Luke Edwards’ latest piece claims that fellow Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has also been spoken to, stating that the Saudi consortium are assessing whether he or Terry would be the ‘right men for the job.’

This comes after Terry’s odds to become the next Newcastle manager took a surprise tumble over the weekend, as some bookmakers saw him go from 661/ to 10/1 at one stage.

He is currently the 9th favourite on Sky Bet and back up to 18/1 – which may come as a slight relief to the majority of Toon fans given his lack of credentials.

A Premier League legend, a real leader and a warrior of a player, yes, however it would be a monumental risk and crazy move for a relegation-threatened Newcastle to be his first taste of management.

I’d be stunned if John Terry got the job.
