Not long after sacking manager Graham Potter, Chelsea are said to be in talks to appoint Luis Enrique as captain.
Chelsea negotiates appointing a coach who won the historic treble
According to European media, coach Luis Enrique’s assistant is in the process of negotiating with Chelsea about a contract for the position of captain at Stamford Bridge. AS reported, Luis Enrique and Nagelsmann are the two leading candidates for the hot seat at Chelsea.
As for Luis Enrique, this coach himself also affirmed: “I want to try to experience the Premier League. But I only accept an interesting project. I just want to join a club where I can do things. big, important. I also get offers from national teams. I’m open to all options.”
The Chelsea Board of Directors highly appreciates the achievements and experience of coach Enrique after his achievements in the past. However, the Blues will not be easy to get the signature of the 52-year-old leader when he is also considered a top target for Tottenham after Antonio Conte leaves.
Luis Enrique’s most impressive achievement in the past must be the historic treble with Barcelona in the 2014/15 season. Barca is also the closest club to a military leader born in 1970. Since leaving Camp Nou in 2017, the Spaniard has yet to lead any team at club level.
On the Chelsea side, in the event that Luis Enrique cannot be signed, Julian Nagelsmann will be the name that the Stamford Bridge team is aiming for. The German military leader has just parted ways with Bayern Munich and is being sought after by European clubs.
