Coach Julian Nagelsmann is being considered the No. 1 candidate for the position of Chelsea manager after Graham Potter was sacked.
Nagelsmann is a leading candidate to replace Graham Potter at Chelsea. The London side have officially sacked Potter after another disappointing result against Aston Villa over the weekend.
Nagelsmann is also being contacted to lead Tottenham after this team sacked Antonio Conte. However, no formal negotiations have taken place yet. Initial information shows that Nagelsmann is not in a hurry to look for a new job and will wait until the end of the season to make the next move. However, if Chelsea ask, Nagelsmann can completely consider accepting this opportunity.
Chelsea confirmed Bruno Saltor will take over as interim coach during this time. The Blues also announced that Potter “has agreed to work with the club to facilitate a smooth transition”.
Graham Potter is the 13th manager to leave the Premier League this season. This season has seen more managers sacked than any previous season in the Premier League.
Chelsea’s next match is the match against Liverpool in the Premier League in the middle of next week. This is a game that means more to Liverpool than Chelsea. Simply because even if Chelsea won 3 points, their chances of participating in the European Cup will no longer be because the gap with the top 5 is too big.
Chelsea’s best route to next season’s Champions League is to win that competition. The representative of the Premier League will have 2 matches against Real Madrid in the quarter-finals taking place in mid-April.
