Former Chelsea midfielder Michael Ballack could join the new-look backroom staff at Stamford Bridge ahead of the new season according to Sky Germany.
It was revealed that the ex-German international skipper is in line to be the assistant manager to Frank Lampard at Chelsea.
Michael Ballack is currently in the process of getting his coaching badges and he could be named as the assistant to Derby County manager Frank Lampard who’s expected to be the new Chelsea manager.
Derby County have already given Chelsea the permission to speak to their former player about the vacant managerial job at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea have been without a manager for the better part of two weeks after former boss Maurizio Sarri left to take up the Juventus job.
Frank Lampard is a Chelsea legend who’s the all-time topscorer in the history of the club with 211 goals during his 13-year spell at the club between 2001 and 2015.
He was named the Derby County manager last summer in what was his first job as a manager and he impressed a great deal by leading the Rams to the Championship playoffs.
Lampard and Derby County were beaten in the final by Aston Villa via a 2-1 victory which was more than enough to seal Premier League promotion.
