After sacking Graham Potter after just six months in charge, Chelsea are on the lookout for a new permanent manager.
US billionaire owner Todd Boehly has given former player Frank Lampard the job until the end of the season but it is expected that the club will hire a permanent manager in time for next season.

A lot of names are believed to be on Boehly’s shortlist, including former Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann, as well as ex-Barcelona boss Luis Enrique.
However, according to recent reports in the European media, another name to be in the running for the job is former coach and current Roma manager Jose Mourinho.
Mourinho was in charge of Chelsea for five years across two different spells where he won eight major trophies, including three Premier League titles.
