Jose Mourinho could make former Blackburn manager Steve Kean his assistant should he take the reins once again at Stamford Bridge, reports The
The charismatic 50-year-old, who is leaving Real Madrid at the end of this season, has been strongly linked with a return to Chelsea. Mourinho became an iconic figure at Stamford Bridge during his three years as manager between 2004-7 in which club claimed back-to-back Premier League titles.
And the ‘Special One’ is understood to be planning to bring Steve Kean as his assistant should the return to Stamford Bridge happen. Kean was much-maligned by fans during his unsettled time in charge at Blackburn, which saw the club relegated from the Premier League last season. He eventually exited Rovers at the end of September this season, with the club sitting third in the Championship.
The 45-year-old Scot was approached once by Chelsea in 2008 to be deputy to Luiz Felipe Scolari, but chose to continue his assistant’s job at Coventry City. Kean has also recently turned down a move to Greek club Panathinaikos.
