image for Bagpuss To Manage Chelsea
"But boss we think 4-4-2 sucks"

Chelsea FC today announced that Bagpuss will take over from Guus Hiddink in the summer. A club insider denied that the appointment was further proof that Roman Abrahamovich was struggling financially. "Bagpuss is not a short term appointment. We believe that he has the management skills to get the best out of Anelka and Ballack. And lets not forget that Emily loved him."

Bagpuss is looking forward to working again with Ray Wilkins. The pair were close friends during their early careers. However, Wikins may not want to dress up as Professor Yaffle these days. It may affect his career as a Hannibal Lector lookalike.

Chelsea are not the first team to appoint a former children's television star. Alex Ferguson first came to fame presenting Newsround when John Craven was on holiday, Harry Redknapp was a regular on Swap Shop-Jermain Defoe please take note-and Graham Rix was a big hit with children also.
