Ola Aina backs John Terry to be a coaching hit at Aston Villa

Nigeria international Ola Aina has backed his former Chelsea teammate John Terry to be a big success at Aston Villa after being appointed assistant coach at the Championship side.

The former England captain officially announced his retirement from playing on October 7 and was unveiled at Villa three days later, where he'll assist new head coach Dean Smith following the dismissal of Steve Bruce.

Terry, who made 32 appearances for Villa last season, spent 19 years at Chelsea, briefly overlapping with...

Troost-Ekong of Udinese sustained an injury in the Serie A encounter at Fiorentina, and while he managed to complete the match, he's been ruled out of the Super Eagles' qualifier.

African stars on Chelsea's books face uncertain futures

No Premier League team has as much African interest as Chelsea, where the Blues' squad is rife with continental talent from the first team to the academy.

Super Eagles' Iwobi, Aina promise Dele Alli hell

Nigeria's Alex Iwobi and Ola Aina have promised to bombard Dele Alli with banter, hoping that it will help the Super Eagles beat England in their friendly international on Saturday.

Alli (whose full first name is Bamidele) was eligible to represent the African nation through his Nigerian father, but chose to throw his lot in with England where he was born and has lived all his life.

Meanwhile, Lagos-born Iwobi and London-born Aina chose Nigeria for senior international football but they played alongside...

Who were Africa's top performers around the world this weekend?

KweséESPN reveal our top five African performers from around the world's major leagues this weekend.

Ola Aina has enjoyed an encouraging campaign on loan at Hull City from Chelsea, despite the Tigers' toil at the wrong end of the Championship table.

There have been encouraging signs under new boss Nigel Adkins, raising optimism that Hull can pull themselves away from danger, but wins have still been few and far between.

Friday's 1-0 victory over rivals Sheffield United, therefore, could prove...
