It looks as though Chelsea will be riddled with ex-players in the upcoming season as the club faces a major staff shake-up this summer.

Rumours about Frank Lampard’s return are still up in the air and now it looks like he will be joined by another ex-Chelsea player, in Claude Makelele, who is being tipped to make a return as a coach, according to reports on Goal.

After over a decade away from Chelsea, Makelele will reportedly be given a role in the coaching staff for the loan group at Stamford Bridge, with Petr Cech also expected to return as technical director.

The 46-year-old has not long ago left his managerial role at KAS Eupen, where he had a relatively successful spell.

Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia has reportedly been keen to refresh the staff behind the scenes at Stamford Bridge following the departure of Maurizio Sarri to Juventus.

Makelele’s new role in West London will be encouraging for the squad and the club’s loan players because of his vast experience could potentially help bring them greater success than they achieved last season.

Andreas Christensen happy to stay at Stamford Bridge.
In what was a frustrating start to the 2018/19 season for the 23-year-old, Andreas Christensen regrouped well and finished the campaign strongly. Christensen was the third choice in the pecking order for the majority of the season as Sarri preferred David Luiz and Antonio Rudiger as his centre-back partnership. The Danish defender made 28 appearances in total for the Blues last season with 15 of those coming in their title-winning Europa League campaign. Christensen got that all important game time during the last two months of Chelsea’s campaign after Rudiger suffered an unfortunate knee injury in the Blues’ 1-1 draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford.
