Bristol City to turn to John Terry for the vacant managerial post

Championship side Bristol City will turn to John Terry after the club parted ways with head coach Lee Johnson.

The club is looking for a permanent appointment after they tasked assistant Head Coach Dean Holden as a caretaker manager until a new man can be found.

According to Football Insider via The Birmingham Live, Terry has applied for the job together with the current Wigan boss Paul Cook whose team entered administration last week.

Bristol had their bid for promotion to the Premier League dented following nine consecutive matches without a win, including four-straight losses after the restart.

39-year-old Johnson was the longest-serving manager in England’s second-tier after being with the club since February 2016 and had looked an improved side where they looked set to make the playoffs before the break brought about by the Coronavirus.

The team currently sits at position 12th on the log and will be up against Hull City in their next game.

Terry has been with Villa since 2018, first as a player and then as an assistant coach under Dean Smith and are currently scrapped in the relegation battle where they are placed 18th with 27 points.
