The former Chelsea defender and club legend is a coach of the U-15 side.

Former Chelsea full-back Ashley Cole has made a winning start to his career as a coach, with a debut win as the Blues’ U-15 coach.

The young Chelsea players came out as Champions of the U-15 international tournament, and the Ex-England international, who announced his retirement from playing football after leaving Derby County in the summer, has taken to social media to show his delight at the success of his players and fellow coaches.

“Great start to my coaching career,” he tweeted.

“Buzzing for the boys they we’re brilliant throughout, and also thanks to the other coaches who have helped me, frank O’Brien Ian Howell and Harvey great job guys.”

Cole made 338 appearances during a eight year career at Stamford Bridge, playing alongside current Chelsea head coach Frank Lampard both at club and international level.

The left-back went onto play for Roma and LA Galaxy before rejoining his former teammate Lampard at Derby County in January 2019. The two have again teamed up in the coaching team with the Blues.

He joined Chelsea in controversial circumstances in 2006, swapping the Emirates Stadium for Stamford Bridge, much to the annoyance of many Gunners’ fans. The full-back is still regarded as one of the best ever left-backs in the world, having made a total of 687 career appearances.
