'He deserves that moment': Frank Lampard expects Chelsea fans to give John Terry the reception he deserves as former captain prepares for return to Stamford Bridge with Aston Villa   John Terry returns to Chelsea for the first time since leaving the club in 2017 The former captain will return as Dean Smith's assistant boss with Aston Villa Blues boss and friend Frank Lampard expects Terry to receive rousing reception 

Frank Lampard expects Chelsea fans to give former captain John Terry a hero's welcome when he makes his first return to Stamford Bridge since leaving in 2017.

Terry, who played 717 times for the Blues, will take his place in the away dugout on Wednesday evening when Aston Villa visit west London.

And Lampard expects the Villa assitant to get a rousing reception from all four sides of the ground.   

Frank Lampard has spoken about his friendship with John Terry ahead of Chelsea v Aston Villa

'I went up against him twice last year (as Derby County boss),' said Lampard. 

'We obviously get on very well and I've got huge respect for him and the work he and Dean Smith have done there with Aston Villa. 

'So I think it's more about John, and the reception he'll quite rightly get from the Chelsea fans; the most decorated captain, the greatest captain who won everything. 

'He feels the club, everyone knows that, and I'm sure the fans will certainly show their appreciation. I'm sure it will be pretty emotional for John, and he deserves that moment. And I'll certainly be pleased to see his face back at the Bridge.'

Terry, who spent 492 league appearances for Chelsea, will make his return to Stamford Bridge 

Lampard and Terry are still close from their playing days together with Chelsea, where they lifted three Premier League titles and the Champions League together.

But the Blues boss explained that pleasantries have been put on hold until Wednesday's clash is out of the way.  

Asking if he still speaks to Terry, Lampard explained: 'Yeah, but not in the last few days. I spoke to him last week and we had a conversation. 

'We are pretty regularly in conversation but we are both focused on our roles. He is working hard there to get results, as are we here. It will be nice to catch up.' 

Lampard and Terry were Chelsea team-mates between for 13 years, winning numerous titles
