Wilkins back with Chelsea

18 Sep 2008 - 12:59:26

Chelsea have confirmed the appointment of former player Ray Wilkins as their new assistant first-team coach.

Wilkins, 52, has joined manager Luiz Felipe Scolari's backroom staff with immediate effect following former first-team coach Steve Clarke's decision to move to West Ham United.

The former England international midfielder is no stranger to working with the Chelsea players having been part of ex-manager Gianluca Vialla's coaching team in the late 1990s.

While working with the Italian, he helped Chelsea win the FA Cup and Charity Shield in 2000.

Wilkins, who has also spent time as the manager of Fulham and QPR plus a spell as number two to Peter Taylor in the England Under-21 set-up, also spent six years as a player at Stamford Bridge.

He made 198 appearances for the Blues, scoring 34 goals, and remains the club's youngest ever captain after being handed the armband during the 1974/75 season.
