Chelsea legend John Terry has revealed the toughest Manchester United player he faced during his playing career. John Terry talked about his toughest United opponent while conducting a question and answer (Q & A) session on Twitter. According to him, ex-international teammate Wayne Rooney is his toughest opponent at Manchester United during his playing career.

John Terry played over 700 times for Chelsea before he left the club on a free transfer at the end of the 2016/17 season. He left the Blues at the end of his contract to join Aston Villa on a free transfer. He spent one season at Villa as a player before taking up the assistant manager role.

Ex-Chelsea captain Terry faced Manchester United 34 times during his career and he had a record of 13 wins, 10 draws and 11 defeats.

Terry has been without a coaching job since he left his role as the assistant manager this summer. The ex-English national team central defender left the Villa job in the summer to concentrate on his managerial career and he has been linked with several managerial jobs since then. John Terry has been linked with the manager's job at Villa on the back of the dismissal of Dean Smith as manager.

Dean Smith was the manager, while John Terry was the assistant manager as Villa gained promotion to the Premier League via the playoffs and also reached the Carabao Cup final in their first season back in the Premier League. In the second season back amongst the big boys of English football, Villa spent several months in the top half of the table before they eventually finished in 11th spot at the end of the season.

Apart from John Terry, the likes of Rangers manager Steven Gerrard, Chelsea legend Frank Lampard, Southampton boss Ralph Hassenhuttl are also in the running for the Villa job.
