Former Chelsea legend favourite to succeed Steve Bruce

Coral now make John Terry their evens favourite to become the next permanent Aston Villa manager following strong interest in the betting today.

The early favourite, Thierry Henry, is now out to 2/1, while Rui Faira can be backed at 5/2.

The movement comes after Terry announced his retirement as a player earlier this week. Henry meanwhile, has been linked with Monaco amid reports the Ligue 1 club may soon oust Leonardo Jardim.

Coral’s John Hill said: “It was initially thought that John Terry was set to become Thierry Henry’s assistant at Aston Villa, however, we have been knocked over today by punters looking to back JT to get the manager’s job where he is the new favourite ahead of Henry.”
