BOUDEWIJN ZENDEN - ASSISTANT FIRST TEAM COACH
Boudewijn, more commonly known as Bolo, returned in November 2012 to the club he served as a player between 2001 and 2004.
Having previously worked as a player under Rafael Benitez for two years at Liverpool, he was asked to become part of the backroom team when the Spaniard began his role at Chelsea. He works alongside fellow assistant first team coach Steve Holland.
A pacy Dutch international winger during his playing days, Boudewijn was signed by then Chelsea manager Claudio Ranieri from Barcelona for £7.5m and was part of a fresh midfield with Frank Lampard and Emmanuel Petit also arriving that summer, an old guard of Dennis Wise and Gustavo Poyet having departed.
On his debut he scored the opening goal of Chelsea's season, against Newcastle, one of four strikes for the Blues which included a fine half-volley at home against Manchester United at the start of the following season.
He was part of the side defeated by Arsenal in the 2002 FA Cup final and played 59 matches for the club, starting 30, but spent his third year on loan at Middlesbrough during which he scored in the Carling Cup final, helping that club to win its first silverware.
Boudewijn joined Middlesbrough permanently on a free transfer for the 2004/05 season and then moved to Liverpool the year after. It was a spell hit by injury but he played in the 2007 Champions League final.
Having started his playing career in his home country with PSV Eindhoven before winning a league title in Spain, he ended it with spells at Marseille and then back in England at Sunderland.
He represented the Netherlands 54 times and played in the semi-final of Euro 2000.
