The March international break has afforded John Terry and Aston Villa’s backroom staff two weeks without fixtures, so training sessions can’t have been too intense as many players are with their respective national teams.
Villa’s assistant manager used his spare time with a golf session at Wentworth Golf Club, a privately-owned resort in Surrey. He posted pictures on his Instagram, showing his score of 80 from 18 holes. Terry only bogeyed three holes, had nine pars and three birdies, but the other scores weren’t visible.
Although winding down with a golf session, Terry may be paying attention to the international football and should be pleased with John McGinn’s performances for Scotland. The 26-year-old has scored three goals in three games for the Tartan Army (Transfermarkt) and may be the key to Villa’s scoring woes without Jack Grealish.
Terry hasn’t seen any of Mings, however, as England manager Gareth Southgate has preferred John Stones alongside Harry Maguire at centre-back. Mings played just 45 minutes in the Three Lions’ 5-0 win over San Marino but didn’t feature in the two internationals that followed.
Terry’s golf game looks solid, but he’s also getting plaudits for his coaching as Villa have conceded only 30 goals in 28 games this season while boasting 14 clean sheets (Soccer Stats). A man of many talents it seems.
