Former Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann is no longer in contention to become the next Chelsea manager, according to Fabrizio Romano. Writing in his exclusive CaughtOffside column, Romano explained that there were some crucial differences between Nagelsmann and FC Chelsea. With the German tactician is supposedly not keen on waiting around for the Blues to also hold talks with other candidates.
Julian Nagelsmann On FC Chelsea
Nagelsmann did some impressive work at RB Leipzig and Bayern Munich. He had a controversial departure from the latter this season. He could have been ideal for Chelsea. Still, it’s been a nightmarish season at Stamford Bridge, and perhaps someone like Nagelsmann ended up having major concerns about the way the CFC board are running things.
It will be interesting to see who Chelsea end up going for, but Romano has also strongly suggested that Mauricio Pochettino is now moving into pole position.
Luis Enrique out of FC Chelsea race
In addition to Julian Nagelsmann being out of contention. It has also been confirmed that Luis Enrique is also no longer in the running for the job. Romano stated, “Luis Enrique is out of the race to become new Chelsea coach — no changes at all. It was decided on club side.”
This leaves Mauricio Pochettino as the front-runner for the job. Chelsea still searching for a permanent replacement for Frank Lampard who was dismissed earlier in the season. With the team having a difficult campaign, fans will be hoping that the club can find a manager who can lead them back to success.
Chelsea are having a horrendous season. They sit in the 11th spot with temporary manager Frank Lampard hardly having any impact on the side. Chelsea are out from all competitions with Real Madrid hitting the final nail in the coffin in the Champions League.
As the search for a new manager continues, the Chelsea board will be keen to make the right appointment. The club has struggled to find stability in the dugout in recent years. With a number of managers coming and going in quick succession. It is hoped that the new appointment will provide the stability needed to take the club forward and compete for silverware once again.
