Aston Villa appoints Dean Smith and John Terry amid Shake-up

Dean machine Smith can make
fans look forward to life at Villa
Park where Terry will
prove an invaluable No.2

Terry, 37, finished his playing career last season with defeat in the Championship play-off final with Villa under former boss Steve Bruce, who was sacked last week.

John Terry wearing full Chelsea kit including boots, shin pads and even sock tape to collect the Champions League trophy in 2012, despite being suspended for the final, has become one of football's biggest oddities over the years.

His former club, Aston Villa, recently sacked Steve Bruce and are now without a manager.

It has also been suggested that Henry is set to bring in former Chelsea captain John Terry, who left the club at the end of last season, as his number two at Villa Park at the start of his reign.

It was hoped that the player would return to Villa for at least one more season, while Spartak Moscow attempted to lure him to Russian Federation over the summer as well.

The defender was made Chelsea captain by Jose Mourinho following the retirement of Marcel Desailly and led the club through one of the most important periods in their history.

"My club career and heart will always belong to Chelsea, but I am grateful for my loan spell at Nottingham Forest in 1999, which was invaluable for my development as a player".

Pitarch, meanwhile, has been confirmed as Villa's new sporting director, having held similar roles at both Valencia and Atletico Madrid.

They also helped me achieve my boyhood dream of playing for and captaining England, of which I am immensely proud.

"It was a privilege to represent such a renowned football club with great fans".
