Tiago offered coaching role at Chelsea

Tiago Mendes will arrive at Chelsea as not only a member of Chelsea's playing squad. The off contract Atletico Madrid midfielder is due to complete a Bosman move to Chelsea in the coming days.

AS says Tiago was ready to wind down his career this summer and was considering offers from Qatar and the UAE.

However, Chelsea's proposal was too good for the Portuguese to refuse.

While initially Tiago will arrive on a playing contract, he will eventually be groomed to become one of manager Jose Mourinho's assistants and his scouting expertise will also be called upon.
