Chelsea Fans Are Furious After Losing Jody Morris to Derby County

Chelsea supporters are furious today after losing youth team coach Jody Morris to Derby County, where he’s been reunited with former Blues team-mate Frank Lampard.

Morris, who played alongside Lampard’s during their playing days at Stamford Bridge, as well as at England Under-21 level, is the new Rams manager’s first addition to his coaching staff since arriving at Pride Park.

But Morris’s departure will be keenly felt behind the scenes at Chelsea, where he has been hugely successful in his role as Under-18 boss, having helped lead the youngsters to a whopping five consecutive FA Youth Cups earlier this season.

Morris was earmarked by many to be a future Chelsea first-team manager, but it appears he became tired of waiting for an opportunity, and he’ll now be trying to help Lampard mastermind promotion to the Premier League – much to the disappointment of Blues supporters everywhere:

Should Chelsea have done more to try and keep Morris at the club?
