Chelsea FC Next Manager
Chelsea FC has seen a huge amount of success since Roman Abramovich took over the club in 2003. But the club has changed a high number of managers over this time. Since 2003, Chelsea has been managed by 12 different managers (including caretakers) while Mourinho and Guus Hiddink had two spells at the club. Chelsea appointed Antonio Conte at the club in July 2016. He won the Premier League in his first season at the club, even though Chelsea finished 10th in the season before. During the season, Chelsea had a fantastic winning streak of 13 games in the league. In his second season, Chelsea finished 5th in the league but won the FA Cup. But the Chelsea board still decided to sack him after his two years at the club and appointed Maurizio Sarri. Sarri was known for his time at Napoli where his club played beautiful football. Even though Sarri never won any trophy with Napoli, he revolutionized the style of play at Napoli and made the club a big threat.
After Sarri joined Chelsea, he lost his first competitive game against Manchester City in the Community Shield. He didn’t have most of his main players for the match because of the World Cup before the season. Although he has started the league in a fantastic way by winning five out of his first five matches. But with Chelsea’s history of sacking manager, there isn’t any surety of how long Sarri will survive at Chelsea. So if the Chelsea board decides to sack him, the managers who could replace him are-
Previous Club: Paris Saint-Germain
Blanc managed Bordeaux in the start of his managerial career. He won the League once in his time there which led him to be the manager of France national team in 2010. He was there for two years and then he stepped down for the job. He became the manager of PSG in 2013 where he won the League three times and also other domestic cups. But he was still sacked after a domestic treble in 2015/16 season because of PSG’s performance in the Champions League. Blanc hasn’t managed any club since then and he was one of the favorites to become the Chelsea manager in June 2018. Chelsea could go with him if they want to replace Sarri.
Previous Club: Real Madrid
Zidane has done the unthinkable with Real Madrid after he won the Champions League three times in a row at the club. He left his position after the end of 2017/18 season and is currently not managing any club. Chelsea board could want him as the next manager if they look for a new manager.
Current Club: Celtic
Rodgers managed Clubs in England all his managerial career before joining Celtic in May 2016. He has been very successful at Celtic. If Chelsea offers him the manager job, he could be interested to come back to the Premier League.
