Chelsea have reportedly made an approach for Ipswich boss McKenna.

McKenna is believed to be the favourite to land the Chelsea job, after steering the Tractor Boys back into the Premier League for the first time since 2022.

Chelsea legend Ashley Cole has reacted to McKenna being linked with the jersey job.

Ashley Cole has said he has been massively impressed by the ‘amazing job’ the Northern Irishman has done at Portman Road after back-to-back promotions.

McKenna has helped Ipswich get promotions from League One to the Premier League in just two seasons.

“I don’t know about a mentality. I can just say that the job he’s done at Ipswich over the past two years has been fantastic,” Ashley Cole said when asked if McKenna had the right ‘mentality’ to manage Chelsea.

“I don’t know any personal information about him but if you’re asking me, ‘Has he done a good job at Ipswich?’, he’s done a fantastic job, an amazing job, so you’ve got to give him credit there.”
