Chelsea is making more changes
Chelsea Football Club has informed German coach Thomas Tuchel that his time at Stamford Bridge is over on Wednesday morning.
According to Sky Bet, Brighton’s president, Graham Potter, is top of the list of top candidates to fill the vacant position. Unemployed stars Mauricio Pochettino and Zinedine Zidane are two other popular prospects.
Press the blues to find a better alternative
Former Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has had a history of being ruthlessly cruel to his managers, and new owner Todd Boehle upholds that tradition. The pressure is on the Blues to find a better alternative after the club’s record summer spending spree.
Less than three months ago, Chelsea’s team members, staff and ownership were lifting the Champions League final trophy. Tuchel led an impassioned speech in the post-match cupola and was later rewarded with his own banner at Chelsea’s home grounds.
However, both the team’s performance and Tuchel’s relations with the players have since soured. The Blues concluded their terrible run of recent times by losing to Croatian side GNK Dinamo Zagreb on Tuesday, having already fallen to Leeds United and Southampton in the Premier League.
Buhli and his crew were annoyed by his reluctance to explain his decisions about players and tactics
Unbeknownst to many, backstage problems were brewing long before the loss. Tuchel was reportedly frustrated by his commitment to scouting players and driving transfer policy as the club operated without a recognized sporting director, while Buhli and his staff were annoyed by his reluctance to explain his decisions about players and tactics.
Despite being just five points off the top of the league table after six games, Tuchel’s most likely replacement, Potter (to be appointed -110 as Chelsea’s coach), has led his side to a better position at the start of the season in fourth place by three points. The blues. The staggering return comes despite the stark discrepancy in the team’s value, which favors Chelsea’s $878.4 million to $271.4 million per Transfermarket.
Potter has been a popular name that has been thrown up at several big jobs over the past couple of years. His best position is ninth, which he helped the Seagulls achieve last season. The limit will be raised significantly, though, if he completes the move to London.
Brighton has already given Chelsea Brass permission to speak to Potter. A meeting is expected on Wednesday with the Blues eyeing their new appointment ahead of the weekend’s game with Fulham.
Pochettino is second on the list of potential candidates to take his whistle at Chelsea (+225). Similar to Tuchel, he last worked at Paris Saint-Germain and appeared in the Champions League final. He also recently managed rival Tottenham Hotspur, who are themselves hiring an ex-Chelsea player at Antonio Conte.
He won’t be as popular with fans as his German predecessor
“Poch” has a worldwide reputation and is no stranger to dealing with strong personalities, but he won’t be as popular with fans as his German predecessor.
Brendan Rodgers (+400) is also on the shortlist as Leicester City continue to struggle. Rodgers led the Foxes to the League Finals in fifth, fifth and eighth place, but an aging squad combined with poor hiring caused the team to drop dramatically in the early parts of the season.
Next in the standings are former and current LaLiga leaders Zidane (+500) and Diego Simeone (+1200). Zidane has won the Champions League three times in a row with Real Madrid but has no Premier League experience and doesn’t speak English, while Simeone is the world’s most expensive coach and plays a defensive style that the new owners are unlikely to seek as they try to improve. club marketing.
Massimiliano Allegri (+1600) and Roberto Martinez (+1600) complete the list of suitors. They are being employed by Juventus and Belgium, respectively, and it would be difficult to move into a new role.
