With every passing day, Chelsea increasingly look like a club in crisis. If you happen to have caught the video from the training session yesterday, you might have noticed the absolute anarchy and disarray in the current Chelsea team.
There is no leadership and even lesser cohesion amongst the members. The manager cuts a frustrated figure who walks out literally “at the drop of a hat” and the players manage themselves without any respect for the badge.
In times of such crisis, you need leaders and old experienced club loyalists back in the dugout and Chelsea might be doing that as they are tipped to get Frank Lampard or John Terry back in the crew.
However, Terry has temporarily pulled himself out of the running.
“In the long run, that’s obviously my ambition but I’m not thinking that,” he said. “I’ve said as a player I got to the heights I wanted to get to and I firmly believe I’m a YTS (Youth Training Scheme) again.
“I’m starting right from the very bottom, I’m not afraid to say that, I’m not afraid to do all the dirty work, picking up the cones, the balls, the bibs, that’s part of my education.
“I’ve got a great teacher in Dean so I’m very fortunate to be able to sit there and learn.
“I’ve always wanted to do it (coach). I think you know as a player when time’s up really.
“It’s been something that I’ve been planning for a few years, and the experience and day-to-day work on the training field and what the manager allows me to do has been fantastic for me.”
