On Sunday night, Chelsea made the departure of first team coach Graham Potter official, confirming the long-speculated bombshell. The London club is currently searching for a new leader who can take over quickly.
The English top flight’s biggest club are languishing in 11th position, and they face Real Madrid of Spain in a frightening quarterfinal of the Champions League. This intensifies their scramble to find a new coach as they try to reverse their fortunes.
And they have plenty of options for candidates. Journalist Fabrizio Romano claims that recently fired German manager Julian Nagelsmann is one of their primary targets. The club has “already approached” the seasoned manager, who was most recently at Bayern Munich, where he won numerous titles until being fired for poor play.
Julian Nagelsmann “is the favourite” to take up the position, the source said, but “talks will continue to make a final decision” Todd Boehly will undoubtedly move quickly to recruit a replacement in an effort to salvage the club’s season and recoup some of his €600 million in signing costs.
