The former Chelsea defender was a keen
spectator as the French outfit continued their preparations ahead of the new campaign
JOHN TERRY was a surprise guest at Marseille’s training
session – just two months after being released from Aston Villa.
The former Chelsea defender has been on holiday in Portugal
with his family, but took time out to visit the French outfit.
Terry, 37, turning up in his shorts and flip flops, was greeted b
some of the coaching staff, before watching the Marseille
players be put through their paces.
The club posted the video of the five-time Premier League
champion on Twitter, spotting him speaking to former team-
mate Jordan Amavi and ex-West Ham ace Dimitri Payet.
But Terry did not get involved in training, preferring to be a
spectator. Whether there is any possibility of him working with
Marseille – either to keep up his fitness or in a coaching or
playing role – is unclear.
The Ligue 1 side were training following their 1-1 friendly draw
at Sporting Lisbon and will travel to face Bournemouth at the
Vitality Stadium on Saturday for another warm-up match.
Terry was let go by Villa in May , having failed to help win them
promotion to the Premier League and is now a free agent.
The five-time Premier League champion has been weighing
options over a possible retirement, with Sky Sports keen to
lead him into a career of punditry, as replacement for the
outgoing Thierry Henry.
Yet, ex-England and Arsenal captain Tony Adams is also trying
to persuade the centre-back to take one last big payday and
play in China .
But with a potential future in management also an option for
Terry, it remains unknown as to his next move.
