The Portuguese will leave his position in the structure of the London club. The connection started in 2004, when the full-back followed the same path as José Mourinho.
The same week Roman Abramovich confirmed Chelsea’s sale, Paulo Ferreira is also leaving Stamford Bridge.
The club’s 18-year bond with the former full-back, now an ambassador and member of the loanee department, is coming to an end.
According to the English press, this departure is not linked to the sale of Abramovich, and the former Portuguese international intends to spend more time with his family in Portugal.
As a player, Paulo Ferreira won three Premier Leagues, four FA Cups, two League Cups, a Champions League and a Europa League.
