Zenden enjoying Chelsea experience despite tension

Bolo Zenden is enjoying his first coaching job at Chelsea as Rafa Benitez's assistant.

The former Dutch international feels being at Chelsea has provided the perfect learning experience and doesn't want it to end any time soon.

He told the London Evening Standard: "For me it's a great opportunity to be at a club like Chelsea, to be asked to do this job.

"I'm very much enjoying it. The good thing for me is that I get a chance to literally be involved in everything, when we do the game analysis, preparing for matches with the video analysis, training sessions, so I'm in every side of it and it suits me well.

"I like it that way. I'm not focussed on just one part of the whole thing, I have a finger in a lot of pies.

"It's my first steps in a coaching role and I'm looking forward to what the future holds for me. It could be anything, but as it stands I have signed my contract with Chelsea until the end of the season and we'll take it from there."
