Clarke feeling marginalised at Chelsea

Steve Clarke is becoming increasingly unsettled at Chelsea, it has been revealed.

The Times says the Scot is beginning to feel marginalised following the appointment of Henk ten Cate as fellow assistant coach.

Clarke was content to play second fiddle to Jose Mourinho, but was assured by Peter Kenyon, the chief executive, last month that he would enjoy equal billing with Ten Cate. The first few weeks have not worked out that way, while Clarke has yet to receive an offer of an improved contract despite being told that it was imminent. The former Chelsea defender is unlikely to stay for ever as he has managerial ambitions of his own.
