Cole may be on his way back
ASHLEY COLE could be a surprise addition to Chelsea’s coaching staff – with Frank Lampard gushing over the defender’s professionalism while they were at Derby.
After playing together for club and country, Lampard brought Cole back from LA Galaxy to use his vast experience at Derby last season.
Cole has been released by Derby and could be in line for a role under Lampard, who was hugely impressed at the 38-yearold’s contribution on and off the pitch.
“First of all, I needed him as a player at Derby. And then there’s the extra stuff in terms of what he brings as a professional.” said Lampard.
“Ash is great for the group. He was always first in at training, friendly with everyone and humble, even though he was the best left-back in the world for a long period.”
Lampard has appointed Jody Morris as assistant head coach as well as firstteam coach Chris Jones and backroom staff Eddie Newton and Joe Edwards.
