Chelsea have announced that Eddie Newton has been appointed to caretaker manager Roberto Di Matteo's backroom staff until the end of the season.

The Blues also confirmed that fitness coach Jose Mario Rocha and chief opposition scout Daniel Sousa have left the club, the pair having been part of Andre Villas-Boas' coaching team.

Former Chelsea midfielder Newton spent almost a decade at Stamford Bridge and he and Di Matteo scored the goals that won the club the 1997 FA Cup.
