‘I’ve lived and breathed football and I don’t think going into coaching or management should scare anyone,’ Cole said.

‘It’s important that I take it seriously. You’ve got to have faith and belief in what you are preaching and the philosophy and style in what you want to portray as a group or club, and I don’t feel scared to go into that.

‘I am raring to go and waiting for my opportunity, making sure I’m ready to go in prepared. I felt it after I went to LA Galaxy (in 2016) and got a deeper role, trying to be that leader in the dressing room but also take sessions, sit in on meetings, and seeing the impact I had on the younger players.

‘I felt I had to give something back. Coming back to Chelsea was my opportunity to do that. Everybody speaks about having that year off (after retirement) to relax and sit on the beach. I actually got bored after two weeks and missed being on the grass.’

Cole added: ‘Is there enough opportunities for black coaches? It’s always going to be questioned. We have to just make sure we’re ready to deliver. I’ve got a long way to go, a lot of learning to do. The timing has to be right.

‘I just need to make sure I’m ready for whatever job, whatever league. I need to be ready and able to deliver. The Under 21s is a great opportunity and hopefully, there will be a chance to manage at a high level.’JAMB Result
