Parry was brought to the club under Frank Lampard, having previously worked as assistant manager to Paul Cook at Wigan and enjoyed a career playing for clubs such as Yeovil and Accrington Stanley.

Parry also has international experience having worked with the Republic of Ireland before teaming up with Roberto Martinez in a part-time role first with Belgium and is now part of Portugal’s coaching group.

“My coaching staff wasn’t prepared either, so a big thank you to their families for their flexibility,” he said.

His announcement is said to have infuriated Chelsea, who feel dealings should take place behind closed doors.
Bayern relieved Nagelsmann of his services after he was unconvinced by the former RB Leipzig boss. With chief executive Oliver Kahn admitting the club had been forced to act after witnessing “significant fluctuations in our performance”.
The German giants are currently one point behind Borussia Dortmund at the top of the Bundesliga, and Tuchel will face his first match in charge.
Tuchel could also face a return to Stamford Bridge in the Champions League if his forces overtake Manchester City and the Blues beat Real Madrid in their quarter-final ties.
