Tyrone Mings has commended since a England debut is prepared for by the Aston Villa defender.
Mings has been called up into the England squad for the first time by Gareth Southgate before their Qualifiers double-header from Kosovo and Bulgaria at Wembley.
The 26-year-old was working with former England and Chelsea captain Terry – assistant manager at Villa Park – as January.
Mings’ loan spell with Villa was made permanent and he feels Terry was a important influence on him.
“He’s developed my game for sure,” said Mings.
“I’ve been fortunate to work with some great coaches over the years – [former Ipswich manager ] Mick McCarthy; [Bournemouth director ] Eddie Howe; [Villa boss] Dean Smith.
“John Terry is another fantastic example of a person I will learn from, that has been there and achieved what I’d want to attain in the game.
“To learn from him and take small pieces of information from him is something I feel really fortunate to be in a position to perform.
“We do a great deal of work on reviewing and clips my own performances. So I really feel like I am at a great location and that I have a great mentor to learn .”
Terry has told Mings he can gauge by small individuals are speaking about him, how good a game he’s had.
“He attempts to tell me to go through a game without being seen without being mentioned,” additional Mings.
“He says that is a fantastic reflection of a centre-back’s functionality – should they are off the pitch and nobody really knows what they’ve done and they’ve quietly gone about their organization. So that is.
“Following a match we will watch clips of my game back and he’ll then tell me exactly what he likes and what he does not like.
“He has worked under such amazing supervisors and he has obviously got all the experience I would like to have, so things that he tells me actually stick and we then attempt to execute that on the practice pitch and work through different matters.
“He gives me a tiny bit of criticism but in the moment it is a whole great deal of positivity.”
