The much criticized Frank Arnesen, Head of Youth Development at Chelsea Football Club, was part of the Russia revolution that took place in 2005 with the arrival of Roman Abrahmovich. Many claimed that Chelsea were spending money on bringing in stars to cover the fact that Frank Arnesen was doing nothing behind the scenes.
Many forget that Arnesen was the man who discovered Ronaldo, frankly the greatest Brazilian player after Pele. Ruud Van Nistelrooy who played for rivals Manchester United before moving on to Real Madrid and now Hamburg. Lastly, of course he discovered Arjen Robben who he eventually worked with at Chelsea.
Working with the manager with the stature of Bobby Robson, Frank Arnesen gained the skills necessary to work the top job. He moved from Tottenham to Chelsea in 2005; however, none of his finds were "great" enough until now.
Frank Arnesen, whose office is right next to Carlo Ancelotti's has been working hard and within the last 2 years his cooperation with the Italian has bore fruit.
