Former Chelsea manager Dave Sexton passes away

Julian Finney

Best wishes to his family.

Former Chelsea anager Dave Sexton has passed away today at the age of 82. Sexton managed Chelsea FC from 1967-1974, and served as an assistant coach at the club previously. He was in charge at Chelsea for 333 games, winning 140, drawing 100, and losing 93. Sexton oversaw the Chelsea side that won the FA Cup in 1970, and also oversaw victory in the 1971 Cup Winner's Cup.

Before joining Chelsea, Sexton managed at Leyton Orient for a very short spell. He moved down the road to QPR after leaving Chelsea, before taking the reins at Manchester United. He then had a pair of stints as the boss of the England U21 side as well as a short stint in charge of Coventry City.

Most of us here are probably far too young to remember Sexton from his time at Chelsea, but it's always a sad day when the club loses any part of it's history. Best wishes go out to all of his friends and family from all of us here at WAGNH. Thanks for everything Dave, you'll be missed.
