John Terry has admitted that his "goal" is to one day become Chelsea manager.
The 36-year-old brought down the curtain on a 22-year career at the Blues when last season came to a close.
Looking ahead to the future, Terry told the British media that he would like to eventually manage his boyhood club, and he suggested that ex-teammate Frank Lampard holds the same ambition.
"That's a goal. Me and Lamps have had those conversations," said Terry. "Do you dream too big? I don't think you can ever dream too big.
"I've always wanted to be the very best and if that's in management, then Chelsea's the one. That would be incredible but I realise as well you can't go in somewhere like Chelsea as your first job."
Terry made over 700 appearances for the Blues and won 15 major trophies.
