Paulo Ferreira


As a player, Paulo Ferreira won the lot at club level.The athletic full-back arrived at Stamford Bridge as a Champions League and UEFA Cup winner with Porto, where he had also lifted two Portuguese league titles and a Portuguese Cup under Jose Mourinho.

The manager brought Ferreira to west London with him in time for the 2004/05 season, when he added a Premier League title and a League Cup winner’s medal to his collection, which turned out to be the tip of the iceberg for him.

In total, Ferreira made 217 appearances for the club between 2004 and 2013 – almost all of them at right-back – in which time we won the Champions League, the Europa League, the Premier League three times, the FA Cup four times and the League Cup twice.

Since hanging up his boots, Ferreira has returned to Chelsea and now works with Eddie Newton as a technical coach to our loan players.
