Published Add your comment

Eddie Newton demanded "passion" from Chelsea's players after getting the shock call to join Roberto Di Matteo's backroom staff.

Former Blues midfielder Newton revealed he was getting his children ready for school on Sunday night when caretaker manager Di Matteo offered him the chance to resume the working relationship they enjoyed at MK Dons and West Brom.

Newton told Chelsea TV: "Robbie and I had a little chat. I congratulated him on getting the position. He said, 'I want you to come in', and I said, 'Okay'."
