Makélélé set for Chelsea coaching role

Claude Makélélé is the latest ex-Chelsea player who is set to be given a coaching role at the club.

The 46-year old was manager of Belgian side KAS Eupen, but he quit that job at the weekend, having been convinced to join Chelsea to take up a role working with loan players.

Makélélé played for Chelsea between 203 and 2008, winning the Premier League and League Cup twice, and the FA Cup once during his time at Stamford Bridge. Since retiring from football, he has had coaching positions at both PSG and Swansea City before taking up the job with Eupen.

The news comes after former Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech was named technical and performance advisor, to join former club alumni, Joe Cole, Tore Andre Flo and Eddie Newton who all have backroom roles with the club, whilst Frank Lampard us widely expected to take over the manager’s position succeeding Maurizio Sarri.
