SPORTS UPDATE: Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho said an "impossible" save by the goalkeeper on loan at Atletico Madrid from the Blues prompted his side's Champions League semi-final exit. Thibaut Courtois dived low to his left to keep out a John Terry headerwhen the score in their second leg was 1-1. Moments later, striker Diego Costa won and scored a penalty to put Atletico ahead before Arda Turan added a third. "One minute in the second half decided everything," said Mourinho. When asked whether he would keep Courtois at Stamford Bridge next season, Mourinho simply said the 21-year-old was "an Atletico player". Louis van Gaal hopes to conclude negotiations with Manchester United in the next few days, aware that potential members of his coaching staff are under pressure to clarify their positions with current employers. Guus Hiddink will take over as Holland head coach after the World Cup and Frank Hoek, Van Gaal’s goalkeeping coach, has promised to tell Hiddink today whether he will remain with the national ...
Chelsea's goalkeeping coach Christophe Lollichon ready for manager No8 José Mourinho will be the eighth Chelsea manager Lollichon has worked with – and the Frenchman has interesting takes on those who have gone before Chelsea's Czech goalkeeper Petr Cech Christophe Lollichon has been here before. Chelsea returned to pre-season training at Cobham on Monday and the goalkeeping coach, a rare constant in the backroom staff over six years of frequent managerial upheaval, has a new boss in José Mourinho to impress. Introduction and adaptation have long since become his default summer settings. "I saw the front page of l'Equipe, just before Paris St-Germain appointed Laurent Blanc, and they had pictures of five candidates," he said. "And I have worked with three of them here. It is crazy, really." The trio pictured were André Villas-Boas, Guus Hiddink and Rafael Benítez, each of whom spent brief spells at Stamford Bridge that did not extend to an entire campaign. Lollichon joined only in late 2007 but has ...

'Former Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink has refused to rule out a return to the West-London club with interim boss Rafa Benitez announcing he will leave the club in the summer after blasting the club's hierarchy and fans. The Anzhi Makhachkala coach enjoyed a successful three months as caretaker boss for the Blues in 2009, guiding the club to the Champions League semi-finals and an FA Cup final victory over Everton. The 66-year-old is a standout candidate with the beleaguered Spaniard set to depart Stamford Bridge at the season's end, and despite announcing his decision to retire last November, he could carry on if he feels "energetic" enough to do so. "I enjoyed my time [at Chelsea] very much," he told reporters. "I was there almost half a year and in 27 or 30 games, we lost only to Tottenham Hotspur and in the rest achieved good results. On top of that, I really enjoyed working with the group of players. "They have gone through a lot of changes. I'm the only man who wasn't sacked. I said to Dutch televisio ...

Lampard, 34, has been at the Premier League side since 2001 and is in the final season of his current deal. "I am thinking about my coaching badges now but there is only one club I want to manage," Lampard was quoted as saying in The Sun newspaper on Wednesday. "I know it might sound a bit big-headed or selfish but I wouldn't want to go through 'showing myself' with a lower club. "Although I would never expect to walk into a position such as the Chelsea manager, this is the only club I'd want to manage," he said. "I'd love to have a crack at it but I'd want to do well. "I wouldn't want the supporters to forget everything I've tried to do as a player because I can't manage the team," added Lampard, who captained Chelsea to victory in the Champions League final against Bayern Munich in May and has won League titles and FA Cups with the club. He has played under several managers at Stamford Bridge, including Claudio Ranieri, Jose Mourinho, Guus Hiddink and Carlo Ancelotti.
Jose Bosingwa BOWS OUT Posted on: Sun 01 Jul 2012 Jose Bosingwa, right-back in the first Chelsea team to be crowned kings of Europe, has today left the club. The Portuguese departs Stamford Bridge having added two FA Cups and one Champions League to his medal collection following his move to west London in the summer of 2008, and heads for pastures new after coming to the end of his contract. Signed from Porto, Bosingwa made his debut in a 4-0 win against Portsmouth on the opening day of the 2008/09 campaign. He quickly established himself as first-choice right-back in the side under Luiz Felipe Scolari whom he had played under at international level. Even with a managerial change midway through the campaign which saw Scolari replaced by Guus Hiddink following a poor run of results, the player enjoyed an impressive debut season, including one his finest games in a Chelsea shirt. In the Champions League semi-final first leg away at Barcelona in 2009, with Ashley Cole missing, Bosingwa was forced to play ou ...
Barcelona defender Dani Alves has turned up the heat ahead of Wednesday's Champions League semi-final with Chelsea, claiming the Premier League side play with fear and lack courage. GettyImages Dani Alves: Key to Barcelona's success • Chelsea face injury problems • Blog: Chelsea talking points Alves opened old wounds and claimed it wasn't the four plausible penalty appeals turned down by Norwegian referee Tom Henning Ovrebo that denied Chelsea victory when the two sides met atthis stage of Europe's flagship competition in 2009, but the Blues unwillingness to attack despite being 1-0 up against ten-man. Chelsea's then-boss Guus Hiddink claimed Ovrebo's performance in that semi-final second leg at Stamford Bridge was "the worst I have ever seen'' by a referee, and Didier Drogba and Jose Bosingwa were both sanctioned for protesting at the final whistle. Andres Iniesta's stoppage-time strike earned Barcelona a 1-1 draw to send them through on away goals and Alves told The Guardian : "There is no doubt tha ...
As job interviews go, this should be progressing swimmingly. Roberto Di Matteo has guided Chelsea into the semi-finals of the Champions League and the FA Cup as well as overseeing an improved run in the Premier League. His spell in the Stamford Bridge dugout has been brief, but his win percentage compares with Jose Mourinho and Guus Hiddink, rather than the underachievers Luiz Felipe Scolari and Andre Villas-Boas. Yet this is not a job interview. Not yet, anyway, and not when the employer is Roman Abramovich. At most clubs, an assistant given interim charge and responding with results would propel himself into contention. Chelsea, however, aim to be an exception. A star-struck billionaire hopes to lure either Pep Guardiola or Mourinho to Stamford Bridge. In doing so, however, the line between optimism and unrealism has probably been crossed. But if the world's two most coveted managers are discounted, the field to succeed the sacked Villas-Boas suddenly seems very open. Careful to deflect questions about ...
