A number of Chelsea legends are currently at the club, helping in one capacity or the other. Jody Morris is in charge of the youth team, Paulo Ferreira is an assistant loan player technical coach and Andre Flo is also back at the club, not forgetting that Carlo Cudicini is also part of Antonio Conte’s backroom staff.

Many others are performing ambassadorial roles and former Chelsea defender Paul Elliott believes that the policy is another part of Chelsea’s continued success as they remain on top of the league.

“I think it is important because they represent different generations and that diversity of players is representative in the fan base and I think that’s a wonderful thought,” he continued.

“Chelsea are doing the right thing, they are a proper football club off the pitch. Bruce Buck is an outstanding man and a great man. Obviously, [Roman] Abramovich, it has been a wonderful success story for him.

“He has supported the club in a way that very few have. It has been great and they deserve to win the Premier League.”

Elliott spent three years at Chelsea before suffering a career-ending injury in a game against Liverpool in 1994.

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
