Birch replaces Benitez
Chelsea fans got their wish as Rafa was sent packing finally. Roman has promoted Youth Coach Sam Birch as the new manager on a 1 Year Deal.
Birch has been a youth coach since the Mourinho days and has been tipped to rise to the top of the game. Here's what he said in his press conference:
''I'm glad to be trusted with such an amazing job, firstly Id like to say I will be running the first team my way. I'm going to give youth as much of a chance as possible, players like Lukaku, McEachran, Ake, Piazon, Chalobah will all be integrated into the first team and I'm sure they will become stars as long as they work hard. Secondly with the financial fairplay rules coming in soon I wont be splashing the cash, I wont sign anyone over the age of 21 either.''
So basically I've struggled to get stuck into a save this year but hopefully managing my favourite side I can commit. Also the rules should make it interesting for you guys too
