Graham Potter, the manager of Chelsea, has only two games left before he is fired if he does not deliver a good result. This is due to fan pressure following a poor performance at Stamford Bridge. Different coaches from various leagues are now salivating at the prospect of replacing Graham Potter if Chelsea fires him.
The following are the managers who have been linked with the Chelsea job:
1. Luis Enrique
Luis Enrique was a well-known player with good technique who could play in a variety of positions but preferred to play as a midfielder or forward. He was also noted for his temperament and stamina. Enrique began his soccer career in 1991 and ended it in 2004. He played for Real Madrid before moving to Barcelona, where he made 500 appearances and scored 107 goals. He played in three World Cups and one European Championship for the Spanish national team.
Enrique began his managerial career in 2008 with Barcelona B, before moving on to Roma and Celta before returning to Barcelona and winning two trophies in 2013/14 and 2014/15. He was appointed Spain’s head coach for the first time in 2018, but resigned in 2019 due to family obligations. He reclaimed the position the following year, leading the team to the Euro 2020 semi-finals and second place in the 2020-21 National League. He resigned last year at the end of the 2022 World Cup and is now being linked with a move to the Blues to replace Graham Potter. If he manage to be signed by Chelsea, He will be the first Spanish to coach the team.
2. Thomas Tuchel
Chelsea fans have been fighting for the return of Thomas Tuchel, who was fired last October and replaced by current manager Graham. His dismissal was not clear to fans, and now fans want him to return to Stamford Bridge to complete his dream of building a team that no other team would want to play with, as he promised Blues fans two months before he was fired.
3. Jose Mourinho
Jose Mourinho joined Chelsea in 2003/4 before leaving in 2007. In 2012, he returned to the club before moving to Manchester United. The blues fans dubbed him “the Special One” because he was the first manager to win the Champions League with the club and the first manager to win Chelsea’s first Premier League trophy. After Chelsea made the best signing for the club, fans now believe Potter has been unable to fully utilize his new signing. Most people now believe that only the special one can command that squad. Mourinho has been linked to Chelsea for the third time.
Pochettino and De Zarbi are two other managers who have been linked with a move to Chelsea. For the time being, the club has not announced an official date for Potter’s dismissal, but rumors have circulated that he may be fired after their Champions League match against Dortmund.
