Former Chelsea Football Club assistant first team coach, Ray Wilkins  today released a statement through the League Managers Association with regards to his recent dismissal by the club.

It read:

“I am very disappointed that the board decided that I had no further contribution to make at Chelsea Football Club which has played such a huge part in my life. Since rejoining the Club, I am extremely proud to have assisted in Chelsea’s recent successes. I enjoyed a fantastic relationship with the staff, players and the supporters and I now wish them all the very best for the future.

“The LMA’s legal advisors are assisting me in obtaining answers to a number of questions arising from my undoubtedly unfair dismissal, and all efforts are being made to reach an amicable solution. I therefore will be making no further comment at this stage.”

CFCnet would again like to extend its deepest and sincerest thanks to Wilkins for everything that the former captain has done for the club, in all his spells with the Blues.
