Bournemouth are searching for a new man at the helm after sacking Jason Tindall following Tuesday night's 2-1 loss to Sheffield Wednesday.
And John Terry has been named as an ideal candidate to become the next the south-coast club manager, according to former Cherries boss Harry Redknapp.
‘Given the opportunity, he could be a really top-class manager. If I was a chairman looking for a manager now, John Terry would be top of my list,' Redknapp told talkSPORT.
‘He's at Aston Villa, he may not be interested, I wouldn't know what his long-term ambitions are, but I'm sure he would want to get into management.
‘If you're going to get into management, I couldn't think of a better club to take over than Bournemouth.
‘It really is a good club, well-run club, good players. It's all there really for somebody to come in and make a big success of it.'
Tindall succeeded the long-serving Eddie Howe in September following the club's relegation from the Premier League.
Terry is currently assistant head coach at Aston Villa and Redknapp.
