Joe Cole quits Chelsea as former England star wants to travel the world

Joe Cole has left his coaching role at Chelsea as he prepares for a move into management.

The Blues legend, who also works as a pundit on BT Sport, had spent the past year working with the club’s academy to build up his experience.

However, Cole has revealed he has stepped down from his position as a technical coach and plans to travel the world to gain more knowledge before taking the plunge into management once he has done his badges.

Cole told The Sun : “Just before lockdown I stepped down from my role at Chelsea. I had a great time there and learned so much.

“It was really important in my development but I was planning on carrying my work with BT and I was planning on doing study visits around the world with different managers, and study visits within the FA.

“That all got put to bed because of Covid but I’ll pick that up when I can and it’s back to normal. I loved it there.

“I’m sure one day I’ll return in some capacity but at the moment, for my development as a coach, I felt going round and going to look and listen and keep my ears and eyes open was the best thing for me.”

He added: “I don’t want to say any clubs because I don’t know if certain managers will be in charge when I ask to go back again. I don’t want to really talk about that.

“But I was working with the FA and I was looking to get with the younger age groups within the FA and see how that works.

“But I don’t want to mention them because you know how things change in football.”
