There are already a number of former Chelsea players working at Stamford Bridge following their respective retirements from the game.
Frank Lampard, of course, is the club’s manager, with Jody Morris alongside him in the dugout as his assistant manager. As part of the backroom staff, there is Eddie Newton and Henrique Hilario, whilst Petr Cech is the technical and performance advisor.

Now, there is another name to add to that list. It has been confirmed that Ashley Cole has returned to south-west London to take up a role coaching the U15s. It is his first job since retiring from the game earlier this year following his spell playing under Lampard at Derby County. That came after spending time with AS Roma and LA Galaxy.
There has been plenty of reaction from the team’s supporters, and they have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts. You can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below.
Ashley Cole was the best Left Back in the world for several years, glad to see him as a coach! Now we need JT to leave Villa to join Chels and we got the band back together ??
