Jody Morris is the hottest coach in English youth football right now, and if we knew a little more about international youth football, we might say in global youth football.
The Chelsea born and bred coach is winning everything he competes in right now, with the U18’s winning their division today.
That makes it a QUADRUPLE this year for Jody and the boys.
Just look at this ridiculous haul!
What odds on Jody getting the senior job within the next 5 years? Must be odds on by now…
BADOOF!! 🏆🏆🏆🏆 pic.twitter.com/9C3EjjuKOC

Manchester United willing to let Anthony Martial join Chelsea in £80million transfer swap
Jose Mourinho is targeting a sensational £80million swap deal, involving Willian and Anthony Martial.
The Manchester United boss is a big admirer of Willian from his time as Chelsea boss, while the Blues are keen on Martial, United’s French striker.
However, Old Trafford chiefs would only consider selling him to the Londoners if Willian is part of the deal, writes the People’s Steve Bates.
Along with Nemanja Matic, Willian was one of two Chelsea players Mourinho wanted to sign when he joined United in summer 2016, six months after leaving Stamford Bridge.
He is a fan of the 29-year-old Brazilian’s speed, team ethic and strong mentality, but faces a battle to persuade his former employers to let him go.
United’s top brass are also in no hurry to allow Martial to leave, but Mourinho has become increasingly frustrated that the 22-year-old – signed from Monaco three years ago when predecessor Louis van Gaal was in charge – is not developing.
Martial – and fellow frontman Marcus Rashford – failed to impress when standing in for the injured Romelu Lukaku in Friday’s shock 1-0 defeat away to relegation candidates Brighton, increasing Mourinho’s annoyance.
The France international – who is also attracting interested from Juventus – cost £36million when he signed him from Monaco.
With Antonio Conte set to be replaced at Stamford Bridge for next season, any deal would be put on hold until Chelsea have sorted his successor.
But if owner Roman Abramovich believes a Martial-Willian swap is a good deal, he’ll rubber-stamp it regardless of who the Blues’ manager is.
