Chelsea football club have agreed compensation with their sacked coach Ray Wilkins after the former England star and Chelsea coach threatened legal action for unfair dismissal.
The ex-Chelsea first team coach and former club captain reached an 'amicable' resolution over his abrupt departure from Stamford Bridge on 11 November.
Wilkins hired employment law solicitors to professionally handle his case for unfair dismissal. Wilkins was told by his former employers his contract, due to end at the end of the 2010/11 football season, would not be renewed and he would have his contract terminated with immediate effect.
Chelsea FC have now reached a mutual resolution with Wilkins after the club insisted they would be honouring their original termination provisions.
The club's chief executive Ron Gourlay said: "I am pleased to announce that we have come to a swift and amicable agreement with Ray Wilkins and all unresolved matters have been settled.
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank Ray for his service to the club and wish him all the best for the future".
Wilkins joined Chelsea for the third time in his career in September 2008 and helped the club win their first ever double last season under Carlo Ancelotti. He took over the position of assistant manager in 2009.
