7 Candidates Who Are In Line To Replace Mourinho

After Jose Mourinho’s sack, many fans are asking who can replace the Portuguese.

‘The Blues’ lost their ninth game of this season to surprise league leaders, Leicester City, a feat which condemned them to 16th position after 16 Premier League games games.

Such defeats has led to Mourinho condemning and slamming his players.

After saying he was betrayed in the defeat to Leicester, Mourinho called on his players to show a more professional attitude in an interview with Chelsea TV.

We pick those out of job managers who have at one point or the other this season have been linked with the Chelsea hot seat in recent days.

1. Guus Hiddink: The first name to be linked to the Chelsea hot seat after after Mourinho’s sack. He was caretaker manager of Chelsea after Luis Scolari was sacked in 2008. He led the side the FA cup.

2. Fabio Capello: Another name recently linked with the Chelsea job. He has huge success in coaching club sides but has performed fairly with national teams; England and Russia. He has coached Roma, AC Milan and Real Madrid and has led all to league titles.

3. Carlo Ancelotti: Another favorite to replace Mourinho. Managed the club between 2009 and 2011 and led the club to a FA cup and league double in his first season in charge but was sacked in his second season for failing to win any title.

Probably the best out of job manager out there. He is also a guarantee for trophies.’

4. Brendan Rodgers: A long shot from the Chelsea hot seat. Was last seen at Liverpool here he had only one good season. Has worked at Chelsea and under Jose Mourinho when he was in charge of the club’s youth team.

5. Jaunde Ramos: A strict disciplinarian and a somewhat sure guarantee for trophies. Has managed London rivals Tottenham but his time there was not very eventful aside a Carling Cup (now capital one cup) win. Has won two UEFA Cup (Europa league) titles.

Juande Ramos

Mirror reports his agent was in talks with Chelsea to replace Mourinho. Ramos is also a noted disciplinarian.

6. Dick Advocaat: A long shot from coaching the team. He has been struggling lately as the Sunderland Manager. The Dutchman is an European champion and is another guarantee for titles. He win them aplenty at PSV, Zenit and Rangers of Scotland.

7. Luciano Spalleti: One of the best tactician of his generation. Spaletti is known for inspiring a 4-6-0 strikerless formation at AS Roma which in turn was the inspiration behind Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona playing with a false nine in Lionel Messi.

Another sure guarantee for titles. Won aplenty with Roma and Zenit.
