Terry Venables is a name synonymous with success in English football, and it was his track record as a coach and manager that led Leeds United to appoint him as David O'Leary's successor at Elland Road in July 2002.
Terry had formed a largely successful partnership with Bryan Robson in the mid-nineties when the pair worked together at England level, and it was this experience that led to the 'Boro boss bringing Venables in to The Riverside to undertake, and accomplish, a rescue mission.
Terry built his coaching reputation in his early spells with Crystal Palace and Queens Park Rangers, having played for both clubs in the latter part of a career that saw him earn honours at every single level for England.
