The job of manager at Chelsea has long been a perilous position with a short lifespan. Though there has been a change in ownership, the high turnover rate remains, with Graham Potter being the most recent victim, lasting from September to March.

Julian Nagelsmann 3/10

A relatively new face in European management, Julian Nagelsmann has a lot of potential suitors after his dismissal at Bayern Munich. Nagelsmann has proven himself successful in the Bundesliga. In his first job at Hoffenheim he steered 17th-place Hoffenheim to seven wins in their last 14 games to avoid relegation, and then to Champions League qualification just the year after.

In his time at RB Leipzig, Nagelsmann guided the team to their first Champions League Semi-final and their first ever DFB-Pokal Final, though losing both games. However, at Bayern, Nagelsmann was truly allowed to shine, winning two DFL-Supercups and a Bundesliga title in his one and a half seasons.

Though Nagelsmann lacks the experience in the Premier League, the young manager could be a talent for Bohely to invest into and allow a proper rebuild of this Chelsea team.

Bruno Saltor 11/2

Bruno Saltor is currently interim manager at Chelsea, and despite having never taken charge of a first-team game before, the Spaniard now finds himself at the helm of this Chelsea team.

Saltor retired from his playing career at Espanyol in 2019 and has been coaching under Potter ever since. His role under Potter was as senior player development coach and he followed Potter to both Brighton and Chelsea. After Billy Reid also departed with Potter, Saltor was left to take charge.

In his first ever game in charge, Saltor took on Liverpool. The Spaniard’s side was the better of the teams throughout the game, having most of the shots and two goals disallowed. The 0 - 0 draw wasn’t the best result, but showed that Saltor could be an option at least for the rest of the season.

Brendan Rodgers 12/1

Another of March’s managerial casualties was Brendan Rodgers at Leicester. Rodgers was dismissed from his post at Leicester after four years in the job, in that time leading Leicester to their first ever FA Cup in 2021.

Rodgers actually got his start in management managing Chelsea’s reserve team from 2006 to 2008. Since then he’s gone on to manage the likes of Watford, Reading, Swansea City, Liverpool and Celtic. His most successful stint as a manager was his trip to the Scottish Premier League where Rodgers won two titles, two Scottish Cups and three Scottish League Cups. Also in his time at Leicester, Rodgers led The Foxes to a win in the Community Shield against Manchester City.

Perhaps his most famous moment in management came at Liverpool, where due to a slip against Chelsea, Liverpool lost the chance at the Premier League title to Man City. However, a move to Chelsea may give Rodgers the backing to finally grab a Premier League title in his career.

Luis Enrique 11/1

Luis Enrique has had a long and interesting managerial career thus far. Starting back in 2008 when he took charge of Barcelona B for three years before moving on to Roma, Celta, Barcelona and the Spanish national team.

Though an extremely successful player for both Barcelona and Real Madrid, Enrique also has an impressive trophy cabinet as a manager. Enrique joined Barcelona as manager in 2014 and stayed until 2017. In that time The Blaugrana won two La Liga titles, three Copa del Reys, a Supercopa de Espana, the Champions League, the Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup.

Despite his only accolade from his time as manager of Spain being a runners-up medal in the 2020/21 Nations League, Enrique could be a solid choice for Chelsea, his time at Barcelona showing he is capable of handling a big squad with big names.

Jose Mourinho 14/1

A vacancy in the manager’s seat at Chelsea could mean Jose Mourinho returns to Chelsea for the third time. Though the relationship has soured over time, Mourinho was a large part of the start of Chelsea’s dominance in the Premier League.

In his first stint at the club from 2004 to 2007, Mourinho won two Premier League titles, an FA Cup, two League Cups and a Community Shield. The Portuguese’s second stint brought a third title and a third League Cup.

Elsewhere Mourinho has been just as successful, winning six trophies with Porto, five trophies with Inter Milan, three trophies with Real Madrid, three trophies with Manchester United and one trophy with his current team Roma. In fact, his only trophyless tenure came at Chelsea’s bitter rivals Tottenham.

Mourinho could be a solid option at Chelsea, being a serial winner who is proven in the Premier League, but the relationship with the club is already frayed and could cause problems.

Mauricio Poechettino 7/2

Mauricio Poechettino could make his return to England with Chelsea, much to the chagrin of Tottenham fans. A legendary manager at Tottenham, though trophyless, Pochettino could try his hand across London at Stamford Bridge.

Pochettino had been snapped up by PSG after the Argentine took a break from management after his shock sacking by Tottenham in 2019 after five years at the club. In his best year at Tottenham, Spurs finished third in the Premier League after a 2 - 2 draw at Chelsea gave Leicester the Premier League. Other notable moments at Tottenham include reaching the League Cup Final in 2014 and the Champions League Final in 2018.

However, Pochettino has proven his winning ability at PSG where before his dismissal he won a Ligue 1 title, a Coupe de France and a Trophee des Champions. Despite having managed their rivals, Pochettino could be the man for Chelsea, as he can win and is proven in the Premier League.

Zinedine Zidane 6/1

Zinedine Zidane is often mentioned when there is a new high-profile managerial vacancy, as his pedigree as a manager is very impressive, with his level of success definitely a bonus for Bohely.

Zidane has only managed one team, Real Madrid, though on two different occasions. His first stint at the Bernabeu resulted in a La Liga title, a Supercopa de Espana, three Champions League titles, two Super Cups and two FIFA Club World Cups. Zidane left in 2018, citing Real Madrid needed change.

However, after particularly bad fortune and form in the following season and two managerial dismissals, Zidane returned. Between 2019 and 2021, Zidane won another La Liga title and another Supercopa de España.

The Frenchman is definitely a good choice for Chelsea based on his history, though Zidane hasn’t shown too much interest in returning to management recently.
