Cole set for Chelsea return

Joe Cole is set to return to Chelsea.

The popular player spent a successful time at Stamford Bridge.

Now, after hanging up his boots, Cole is in talks to rejoin the club as a coach.

Cole has the necessary badges in order to work with the Chelsea youth team.

Sky Sports report the club are keen to bring Cole back to work with their developing players.

Chelsea have already seen former midfielder Frank Lampard shine at Derby this season, and the generation of players who have just retired are going into management to varying degrees of success.

A top four fight

Chelsea are in a fight for the top four.

The top three have now broken away, with Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool all looking like chasing for the title this season.

That leaves Chelsea and Arsenal to fight it out for the final top four spot.

Now, under a new manager, Manchester United also look like coming back into play as well.

That will make for an exciting second half of the season.
