John Terry’s possible return to Chelsea as a coach is good news for both Ethan Ampadu and Alvaro Morata
John Terry’s influence on Chelsea FC stretched far beyond his exploits on the pitch.
During his latter years at Stamford Bridge, Terry was seen as a father figure to many at the club.
And even though he may not have been playing that much, he was having mentor-like effect on the young players at the club.
Even established first-team players like Didier Drogba have cited the influence Terry had on their careers.
Drogba said that Terry’s strong-handed approach to training helped to toughen him up, and allowing him to cope with opposition defenders’ rough tactics against him.
Terry’s influence may have gone some way to Drogba scoring 164 goals for the Blues.
And after he has been linked with a return to Chelsea as a coach, Terry could have a similar effect on Alvaro Morata.
Morata has struggled against physical defences, and Terry’s coaching could help to coach this out of the Spaniard.
Terry could also have a positive influence on Ethan Ampadu’s blossoming career.
He broke into the first team when he was 18 years old, which mirrors Ampadu’s rise.
The Welshman has only just turned 18, and has already made his Chelsea and international debut.
Terry’s experience could help Ampadu grow as a player and as a man, and fulfil his obvious potential.
