Chelsea's Holland named England assistant

Chelsea's Holland named England assistant

His role under current boss Antonio Conte is as one of several assistant first-team coaches, and Chelsea have confirmed he will not be replaced when he leaves.

He will also work with England for internationals against Germany and Lithuania in March.

Holland has worked closely with England boss Gareth Southgate since 2013, initially with the Under-21s before stepping up to the senior squad in the Autumn.

Holland, who now works as one of Antonio Conte's assistant first-team coaches at Chelsea, was named on Wednesday afternoon as Gareth Southgate's new assistant manager, a role he will permanently take up next summer. Afterward he was appointed on an interim contract after the former England manager Sam Allardyce was sacked.

Southgate explained that they have good chemistry between themselves as they worked with the England's under 21 national team and because of the reason, their mentality is supposed to be similar.

Cubs get closer Wade Davis from Royals for OF Jorge Soler
The World Series champion Chicago Cubs acquired star closer Wade Davis from the Kansas City Royals for outfielder Jorge Soler . So why not use him to go get a closer who is every bit as dominant as Chapman, albeit without the triple-digit fastball.


The Englishman has been part of Chelsea's backroom staff since 2009 when he first took over the Reservers, later becoming the assistant coach of ex-Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas in 2011.

"I am delighted to have Steve as my assistant manager", Southgate told the FA's website.

"Now, I think for Steve it's better to be focussed on this season because this season is very important for us", Antonio Conte said.

It is a blow for Chelsea, has Holland has overseen so much success during his time at the club. So, his resume seems to be very attractive so far with the combination of huge experience and achievements so far in his career.
