Chelsea legend John Terry is one of the favourites for the vacant managerial job at English Championship side Derby County. This is according to the report from the Daily Mirror which claimed that the ex-Blues centre back is one of the candidates pencilled down to potentially replace Dutchman Philip Cocu who was sacked last month after a below average start to the new league season in the second tier of English football.

John Terry wants ex-England and Chelsea colleague Ashley Cole as his assistant manager if he gets the job according to the aforementioned report. It was also revealed that the former Chelsea skipper is the bookmakers’ favourite to take the Derby County job.

His England national team colleague Wayne Rooney is a player/coach at the club and he's in temporary charge of the Rams. Rooney led Derby County to a crucial win in midweek to lift the club off the bottom of the league. Derby County had gone eleven games without a win before the victory at Milwall over the weekend.
Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney scored the only goal of the game in a 1-0 away win over Norwich City for the last time the Rams won a league match until last weekend. Rooney was on the bench as Derby County secured their first win in 12 matches via a 1-0 victory over Milwall at The Den. He would be hoping to make it two consecutive victories when he takes his team down South to face Brentford inLondon on Wednesday night.
For John Terry, he became an assistant manager at Aston Villa shortly after he called time on his hugely successful career at the same club. He has been at Aston Villa as the main assistant to manager Dean Smith since 2018. He had spent one season as a player at Aston Villa during the 2007/08 campaign.
