Jody Morris is Chelsea through and through, as he grew up in West London and joined Chelsea aged eight and made well over 150 appearances for the team he supported as a boy.

The 40-year-old was in the Chelsea first team from 1996 to 2003 before leaving the club to join Leeds United.

After his playing career, Morris came back to the club and was with the Blues academy. Morris went on to become assistant manager of the Blues’ U18s for two years, before two years as the U18s boss.

He left Chelsea last year to join Frank Lampard at Derby County and has now returned to assist the legend at Stamford Bridge.

For Morris, Stamford Bridge is home.

“It’s an amazing feeling to be back,” he told the official Chelsea website.

“This is my club, it’s the team I supported as a boy and I was lucky enough to go through the ranks as an eight-year-old to then play for Chelsea.

“Obviously the five years I had working in the Academy were amazing but after leaving for Derby last year, to come back now really does feel like I’ve come home.”
