“After 23 incredible years as a footballer, I have decided now is the right time to retire from playing,” Terry said. Terry, capped 78 times by England, recently rejected a chance to play for Spartak Moscow, saying a move to Russia was not right for his family.

His last game as a professional was Villa’s 1-0 Championship play-off final defeat by Fulham in May a loss that denied Villa a return to the Premier League.
