Aston Villa boss Dean Smith is hoping with John Terry in his corner he can 'plot the downfall' of the former England defender's old Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho.

During his 19-year playing career with the Blues, Terry worked under Mourinho for almost six of those, winning three Premier League titles, the FA Cup and three League Cups together.

Now working as one of Smith's assistants, alongside Richard O'Kelly, Terry and Mourinho will cross swords for the first time in opposing dugouts when Spurs head to Villa Park on Sunday.

Offering an insight into Terry's role during matches, Smith added: 'He is wired up to the analysts upstairs.

During his near five-year stint in his first managerial post with Walsall, Smith was affectionately known as 'the ginger Mourinho' due to his tactical acumen, planning and being able to get the best out of players.

While jokingly conceding he is 'not so ginger now', Smith is proud of the moniker and the legacy he feels he has left behind at the clubs he has been involved with.

'Every club I've been at, Leyton Orient, Walsall, Brentford that have been part of my journey and coaching experience, I've learnt an awful lot from all of them,' said Smith.
