CHELSEA fans want the club to install Blues legend Michael Ballack as Director of Football.
The former Germany stalwart visited pal Frank Lampard at Blues’ training ground at Cobham this week.
Ballack, 43. took to social media to post two photos of himself alongside Lamps.
And Blues supporters were quick to call on Ballack to return to Stamford Bridge in a new role to help his old team-mate get the club back to the very top.
Former midfielder Ballack has previously been linked with a return to the Bridge, and he was thought to be on a shortlist to become technical director just over a year ago.
Blues fan Shree Acharya posted: “Please say he’s joining us in some role.”
And Jayson Norris said: “Back again. @Ballack is back. Tell a friend.”
While “Son of Grace” said: “We need this legend, imagine what Mount will learn from him.”
Leonardo said: “Ballack y Lampard together again.”
And Low Key added: “I wish @Ballack is @ChelseFC Director of Football.”
Of course the Blues’ transfer ban means there would not be much scouting to do in that role.
But Ballack’s wealth of experience, with 98 caps and 42 goals for his country, as well as multi-titles at Stamford Bridge mean he would be a huge coup for the Londoners.
He was a key part of the side that reached the Champions League final in 2008 .

He also won the Premier League title and FA Cup Double in 2010.
Ballack finished his playing career at Bayer Leverkusen in 2012.
He has been a pundit for ESPN since his retirement.
