Michael Ballack is being considered as a replacement for Michael Emenalo as director of football at Chelsea, according to Evening Standard.
The report says Michael Ballack has been added to the list of names under consideration, which include another former Chelsea player, Juliano Belletti, and Lille’s sporting director Luis Campos.
Ballack is well regarded by Chelsea fans. He had a short stay at the club but made himself an instant fan favourite with his superb performances that drove the team forward at the time when they had perhaps their best ever first XI.
Ballack still attends events at Chelsea on a regular basis and played in a Legends match against Inter Milan on Friday night — a match dedicated to Ray Wilkins, who passed away last month.
