Luis Enrique has been “axed from the list,” while Chelsea is “in contact” with Mauricio Pochettino
Luis Enrique was reportedly removed from Chelsea’s shortlist, and Mauricio Pochettino is preparing for further discussions.
Frank Lampard is serving as the Blues’ interim manager through the end of the current campaign. A thorough search is being conducted for their next permanent manager. Enrique, a former manager of Barcelona traveled to London two weeks ago for talks, but he is no longer the front-runner.
According to The Telegraph, Julian Nagelsmann and ex-Spurs and PSG manager Pochettino have both advanced to the second round of negotiations. Other unnamed coaches have also been hired, but Ruben Amorim of Sporting is now seen as an outsider, much like Enrique.
According to reports, there isn’t a clear favorite right now. After being fired by Bayern, Nagelsmann gave an interview, and Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali spoke with Pochettino before appointing Graham Potter earlier.
Thiago Silva, a seasoned defender, spoke out after the Champions League loss to Real criticizing the owners’ strategy this week.
According to him, the first step has already been taken, albeit in the wrong direction, according to TNT Sports Brazil. If we don’t accept responsibility, we can’t blame the managers. The club is going through a challenging time with lots of uncertainty.
And Tim Sherwood, a commentator for Sky Sports, urged them to move quickly with their managerial search. “If they find a manager, they should bring a manager in,” he said. “That way, he has a chance to see the squad and what he has.”
“Let a manager come in, watch them practice every day, and watch them play in the games that are left; they have challenging games ahead of them. The players must get used to the new manager. Utilize this time. Bring in a candidate right away if there is one available who they like who is unemployed.
Tottenham, who have recently shown interest in Enrique and have a direct route to him, may now approach him.
