Rafael Benitez has appointed Boudewijn Zenden as his assistant manager at Chelsea, according to the Dutchman's father and agent.

Benitez was named interim boss until the end of the season on Wednesday night and has now begun the challenge of winning round his new club's players and fans, something that could be helped by adding a former Blues star to his coaching staff.

Pierre Zenden told Voetbal International his son was on his way to Chelsea, saying: "He was approached on Wednesday by Benitez and is now on a flight."
