Chelsea Manager Contenders

However, it is not entirely clear which candidate would be the best fit for the club. Among the big name contenders is former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane, who won two La Liga titles during his time at the club. Despite his pedigree in the big leagues, he is unlikely to be the right fit for the Chelsea job.

Another candidate who has a track record in English football is Pep Guardiola, who has won 14 trophies during his time at Barcelona. He is an intriguing candidate as he has experience working with clubs in all levels. However, he is also believed to be a risk for the club, especially as he is already 67 years old.

Another candidate who has a strong track record with Chelsea is Guus Hidink, who has managed the club in the past. While he was sacked by Scolari in the middle of the season, the Dutchman's reputation among Chelsea fans remains. Unlike Scolari, Hidink knows Chelsea inside-out and is a good tactician. However, he is currently contract to the Turkish national team.

The Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is also another option. Pochettino has a proven track record at Premier League level and is regarded highly in Premier League circles. Although he was unsuccessful in winning the Champions League with PSG, Pochettino remains a top coach in the Premier League.

A former Brighton manager Graham Potter is also a top contender. The former Brighton boss has a reputation for developing young talent. Chelsea believe that Tuchel has failed to develop this aspect of his squad. He has coached such young players as Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori. He has also worked with Marc Cucurella, Yves Bissouma and Pascal Gross.

After the Champions League defeat, the Blues are on the lookout for a new head coach. Their new owner Todd Boehly has sacked Thomas Tuchel, who was in charge for only seven matches this season. While the Italian was able to win the second European Cup with Chelsea in 2013 as a manager, the defeat at Dinamo Zagreb was probably the final straw.

Several other managers have been linked with the Chelsea Manager position. However, none of them have been officially announced as the final candidate. In the meantime, there are several other rumours that indicate a change in the management team. There are two names that have consistently been linked with the position. One of them is Thomas Tuchel, who has previously managed Leicester City's youth team.

Jose Mourinho, who was sacked by Chelsea during the 2015-16 season, is also among the candidates. His style is unique and has brought the Spanish club great success. Simeone, who was appointed manager of Atletico Madrid in December 2011, led his team to two UEFA Champions League finals and is known to be an energetic presence on the touchline.
