Former Chelsea manager Dave Sexton dies, aged 82 Former Chelsea and Manchester United manager Dave Sexton has died, aged 82. Sexton led Chelsea to victory in the 1970 FA Cup and then to the European Cup Winners' Cup title in 1971. He went on to coach the England Under-21 team between 1977-90, leading them to successive European titles, in 1982 and 1984. "It is a sad day for English football," said Football Association director of football development, Sir Trevor Brooking. "Anyone who was ever coached by Dave would be able to tell you what a good man he was, but not only that, what a great coach in particular he was. "In the last 30-40 years Dave's name was up there with any of the top coaches we have produced in England - the likes of Terry Venables, Don Howe and Ron Greenwood. His coaching was revered."
