Bruno Saltor’s exit from Chelsea has been kept a secret, but the club has paid the remaining balance of his contract.
Bruno, 42, joined Chelsea’s backroom staff after Graham Potter was hired as the team’s new first-team manager in September 2022. The Blues paid Brighton & Hove Albion £21 million to get Potter’s services.
After Potter left, the Spaniard took over as Chelsea’s interim manager, and he supervised their 0-0 draw with Liverpool in April.
Prior to being named one of Mauricio Pochettino’s backroom staff for this season, Frank Lampard was given the keys for the balance of the 2022–23 campaign, forcing Bruno to take a backseat.
In addition to the coaches Pochettino brought with him to Stamford Bridge, Bruno was also a part of the coaching staff.
The club chose not to issue a public statement despite paying out the remaining portion of Bruno’s contract in west London, according to The Telegraph, who also claimed that Bruno has now surreptitiously left Chelsea.
As one of Pochettino’s backroom instructors, the former Brighton defender lasted only four months. Before departing for Chelsea, he worked in Brighton’s coaching staff for three years.
