TITLE RACE DONE? EMMA HAYES FAREWELL TOUR ENDS TROPHYLESS

Emma Hayes has been Chelsea Women's Head Coach since 2012 and since her appointment, the blue London club have amassed success during her reign.


However, Emma announced earlier this season that the 23/24 season would be her last as she would be leaving Chelsea to go on to new things, this news pulled at the heart strings of all in the Chelsea community and lit a fire in the Chelsea players to make sure that Emma's farewell would be the greatest of all.




Yet the farewell tour has fallen immensely short of its planned glory, as Chelsea now look to go trophyless this season.


The London club had the potential to win four trophies this season, hoping to accomplish the quadruple which fellow London rivals Arsenal completed whilst Emma Hayes was a part of Vic Akers coaching staff. The Champions League, The WS title, The FA Cup and Conti Cup were all up for grabs this season. However, Chelsea once again lost to Arsenal in the Conti Cup final, which saw Emma Hayes fly into a furious fit in which she pushed Arsenal coach Jonas Eidvall.


Soon after, Manchester United knocked Chelsea out of the FA Cup with a 2-1 win. Barcelona also reaffirmed why they are the best team in the world by beating Chelsea in the Champions League Semi Final and with a last damaging blow Liverpool beat Chelsea 4-3 to keep them behind Manchester City in the title race.




Chelsea are still in with a chance of winning the league title after Arsenal's dramatic late win away to Manchester City, but it looks highly unlikely with Emma Hayes agreeing and saying 'the title is gone now,' after Chelsea's defeat to Liverpool.


In truth, Emma Hayes has been an amazing addition to Chelsea and will go down as their best signing in their women's teams history.


She has brought numerous titles to the club and made them the delight of English women's football. Despite a few bitter moments and not ending the season on the high like many Chelsea fans wanted, Emma Hayes will be remembered as a Chelsea Legend.
