Chelsea captain John Terry will be offered the chance to fast-track his way into management with Danish club Brondby, according to The Mirror.
The Mirror claims that Terry is friends with Brondby owner Jan Bech Andersen, who has already approached him over an unlikely move to Denmark.
Brondby have installed Aurelijus Skarbalius in interim charge after former boss Thomas Frank quit last week following a fallout with Anderson.
Terry’s career is approaching a crossroads. The 35-year-old would like to stay at Stamford Bridge but there is no offer on the table, The Mirror adds.
The defender has insisted that he will not play for another English club, as The Guardian reports, but is unlikely to be short of playing offers from elsewhere.
But The Mirror reports that Brondby have the funds to tempt Terry to Scandinavia, illustrated by their signing of Daniel Agger from Liverpool in 2014.
And Anderson would be willing to offer the former England skipper a player-coach role to kickstart his venture into management early, according to The Mirror.
