Journalist Paul Brown has reported latest update on the Chelsea’s manager situation. The club is currently suffering under Mauricio Pochettino and sit in the bottom half of the table. He reports that Chelsea maybe in a hunt to bring back Jose Mourinho at Stamford Bridge if the Argentine is sacked.
If the move materialises, it will be the third spell of Portugese tactician with the Blues. During his first spell at Chelsea, the club underwent a series of success. They not only secured the Premier League glory but also their first in 50 years. Moreover, co-owner Todd Boehly could be tempted to replace Mauricio Pochettino with Jose Mourinho in the Stamford Bridge dugout as he has a ‘proven track record of winning trophies’.
The Blues entered a new era when Boehly led a £4.25billion takeover of the west Londoners in May 2022. Though, it has not been plain sailing for the American businessman. Despite spending a huge sum of capital, the club is still in search of a silverware. Besides this, their current position in the table is also shambolic.
Jose Mourinho waiting on sidelines for an offer from Chelsea
According to The Sun, Mourinho is waiting in the wings to take over as Chelsea’s manager despite Boehly refusing to wield the axe on Pochettino at this stage. The report suggests that the ownership group are remaining calm over the Blues’ situation even though they have spent more than £1billion on fresh faces.
Journalist Paul Brown makes his claim about Todd Boehly and his decisions for the future of the club. He says that the American businessman has shown he can take unexpected decisions although Mourinho may not be on the priority spot.
“It’s a new ownership, so anything is possible. If the previous ownership was still there, I think there wouldn’t be a chance in hell of them wanting to bring Mourinho back again. It’s a delicious little prospect for anyone who isn’t a Chelsea fan because who knows how that would go?
I doubt that he is high on any list of names that Chelsea have in the frame should Pochettino go, but you never know. This ownership is quite unpredictable. If they see a manager out there with a proven track record of winning trophies and who has done it before in the Premier League, it might tempt them.”
