Morris was a former-Chelsea player, making 160 appearances for the Blues while playing alongside Lampard. Morris has been working alongside Lampard as his assistant manager at Derby County, as the Championship club reached the Championship play-off final last season.
Edwards came through the club’s academy, and while he never made a first-team appearance, he has been a part of the Chelsea coaching set-up since 2004.
Here is a selection of tweets from fans, who are excited at seeing Morris and Edwards return to the club:
Fantastic news, senior players won’t get as much love as they have with other managers, time for players to play on merit and not on pure relevancy.
