He however, failed with a 1-0 loss to the Cottagers at Wembley on Saturday.

“We will like to place on record our most sincere thanks for the effort and professionalism he showed with us last season. “John is a true leader and was everything and more that we hoped.

“We hope he looks back on his time with Villa fondly and we wish him the very best as his career moves forward.”
John Terry said,”Today I part ways with Aston Villa Football Club. I’m very proud to have had the opportunity to play and captain this great and huge club,” he said yesterday in a statement on Instagram page.
“I have given my everything this year both on and off the pitch and I’m still hurting today that we never managed to get back to the Premier League, where this club 100 per cent belongs.
“I would like to thank Steve Bruce who was instrumental in me joining Villa. I have learnt so much from him as a manager this season. That will stay with me forever.
Also, I’d like to thank all the staff and players who it was a real pleasure and honour to work with everyday,
There are rumors that he might join Frank Lampard and Jody Morris, who are all but set for the Derby County job — or perhaps he’ll find one more challenge before hanging up his boots for good.
