Italian sources are suggesting Marco Materazzi could be Jose Mourinho’s assistant manager if he returns to Chelsea next season.
The strong bond between the two men has never been in doubt, as Mourinho was filmed in tears hugging the now retired defender after they won the Champions League trophy in 2010.
There are consistent rumours that Mourinho is planning to leave Real Madrid this summer for a return to Stamford Bridge.
According to Calciomercato.it, the Special One has picked Materazzi as his assistant manager in this London experience.
It would not be Matrix’s first time in the Premier League, as he played for Everton in 1998-99.
