Roman Abramovich is demanding a sweeping coaching review at Chelsea.

The Sunday Mirror says Abramovich has ordered a total review of the coaching and ­administration set-up at Chelsea in the wake of the Champions League exit.

He was at the ­Cobham training ground the morning after the ­defeat by Inter Milan at Stamford Bridge.

The Chelsea owner wants a detailed report into the numbers employed in the backroom staff and what each ­employee contributes. The suggestion is there may be cutbacks.

Although the Russian ­oligarch has been ­supportive financially since he took over in 2003, he has been ­exasperated by the lack of success in the Champions League.
