Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has confirmed the backroom staff who will be assisting him at Stamford Bridge.

Jody Morris has returned to the club and takes the role of assistant head coach having worked with Lampard at Pride Park last season.

Morris made 173 appearances for the Blues between 1996 and 2003, having progressed through the Academy ranks at the club. He came through the academy at Chelsea and remains the youngest ever player to feature for us in the Premier League after making his debut at the age of 17 years and 43 days.

Eddie Newton will also be assistant coach, a role he previously held at the club under Guus Hiddink and, most notably, Roberto Di Matteo during our Champions League-winning 2011/12 season. Like Morris, Newton came through the Chelsea academy and made 214 appearances for the club.

Joe Edwards, who has most recently been our development squad coach, will also act as assistant coach to Lampard.

Chris Jones also returns in an assistant coach role, having previously worked with us as fitness coach for nine years before joining the Rams last summer.

Former Chelsea goalkeeper Hilario completes the backroom staff in the role of goalkeeper coach. He made 39 appearances for the Blues.
