According to David Ornstein, the process of finding a new Chelsea manager will be thorough, so Bruno Saltor is likely to lead the Blues until the end of this season in an interim role.
Chelsea decided to sack coach Graham Potter after the 0-2 loss to Aston Villa at home. The achievement of ranking 11th in the English Premier League, 12 points less than the Top 4, cannot make the BLD of the London team satisfied. Assistant Bruno Saltor will become the interim coach until the Chelsea leadership finds a new head coach.
Many rumors suggest that Chelsea are in talks with Julian Nagelsmann, who has just been sacked by Bayern Munich. They can appoint a coach born in 1987 at the end of this April if the negotiation process goes smoothly.
However, transfer expert David Ornstein of The Athletic suddenly confirmed that Chelsea will not be in a hurry to find a new coach. He said: “The Chelsea board is cautious in finding a replacement for Graham Potter, they believe that hasty decisions can lead to mistakes.”
“There is no clear candidate at this point. And a process with many stages can hardly help Chelsea appoint another coach quickly. The sporting director will do a thorough search and take the candidate to the owner of the team. Chelsea will only have a new coach after this season is over.”
Bruno Saltor is likely to lead the Blues until the end of this season in an interim role. He will make his debut for The Blues tonight, in the match against Liverpool in the framework of round 8 of the English Premier League 2022/23.
