Chelsea have yet to decide on a new permanent manager, however, one surprise name is beginning to make headlines.
Having made the recent snap decision to sack Graham Potter after just six months in charge, Chelsea, led by US billionaire owner Todd Boehly, opted to rehire former manager and club legend Frank Lampard on an interim basis until the end of the season.
However, with results continuing to nosedive and the side showing very little grit and determination, it is clear the London-based club will need a new man at the helm as soon as possible.
And according to a recent report from the Daily Telegraph, despite Boehly being keen on Luis Enrique and former Bayern Munich boss Julian Naglesmann, ex-Tottenham and PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino is now also a candidate to succeed Potter.
Pochettino has been out of a job since he left his position at the Parc des Princes almost 12 months ago, and set for a return to the dugout, should the Argentine take the vacant Chelsea job, rival Tottenham fans will be left feeling furious – especially considering they themselves are in need of a new manager and Pochettino has remained a firm fan-favorite following a successful five years with the club between 2014 and 2019.
