Former Chelsea boss Sexton dies
Former Chelsea manager Dave Sexton has died aged 82.
Sexton led the Blues to FA Cup glory in 1970 and secured their first European success in the Cup Winners’ Cup the following year. His managerial career began at Leyton Orient and from there he moved on to Chelsea, before enjoying spells in charge of QPR, Manchester United, the England Under-21 team and Coventry.
The English FA’s director of football development Sir Trevor Brooking said: “It is a sad day for English football.
“Anyone who was ever coached by Dave would be able to tell you what a good man he was, but not only that, what a great coach he was. ”
