Emma Hayes wants to 'enjoy' Chelsea farewell

Emma Hayes wants to 'enjoy' Chelsea farewell

Emma Hayes hopes to "enjoy" her final week in charge of Chelsea.

The coach is leaving the club at the conclusion of the Women's Super League season and is hoping for a memorable farewell by pipping Manchester City to the title.

Speaking before Wednesday's (15.05.24) match, Hayes said: "I’m going to enjoy being in this position.

"You don’t often get into a position where you are competing for a title going into the last two games of a season. For those of us who have won titles, we know how hard it is.

"I’m happy to be in the position we’re in. I know we have two tough games but I’m looking forward to them."

The WSL is Chelsea's final chance of a trophy in Hayes' swansong campaign and she says that recent disappointments in cup competitions proves how hard it can be for teams to keep being successful.

She said: "You can’t win everything all of the time.

"But to be in a position to compete for our fifth title in five years, I’d like to see another team do that over the next five years. The reason I say that is nobody really understands how hard that is to keep winning.

"To be in a position to compete for that, that’s all I wanted the team to be in. I just want them to enjoy the next two games."
