Jody Morris will be the number two man at Stamford Bridge next season, as he will assist Frank Lampard in the dugout for Chelsea.
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.
Morris was very successful with the junior team before leaving to assist Lampard at Derby County last season, and now the former Blue will be the assistant manager at Chelsea.
Chelsea youngster Mason Mount is a product of the academy and knows what it means to work under Morris. He was asked which one word he would use to describe Morris, and the 20-year-old used the word ‘winner’.
“It’s a very good question. I think definitely a winner, he always wants to win. So I think that is a massive part of him and as a coach. So I would say that’s my one word,” Mount said on Chelsea’s Instagram page while answering fans’ questions.
Mount was also asked which former Chelsea player he’d have loved to play with the most, and mentioned one Blues legend he has played with and also the boss, Frank Lampard.
“I have already been lucky enough to play with one ex-Chelsea player, Ashley Cole last year,” Mount added.
“But I would love to play with the gaffer [Lampard]. I would have loved that.”
