Just in : Sack potter now and appoint this special manager because he gois the perfect Man for Chelsea job with alot of Major Titles , Chelsea FC must appoint him now says Chelsea Legend
Former Blue Frank Leboeuf said he would be “very, very happy” if Chelsea appointed Zinedine Zidane to replace Graham Potter as a manager.
An earlier report from The Telegraph journalist Matt Law suggested that the Chelsea board have not given up on Potter’s project despite the embarrassing defeat to 20th-placed Southampton on Saturday.
But Potter is not exactly untouchable, either.
If the poor run — two wins in the last 15 matches in all competitions — continues, replacing Potter will become more and more appealing an option for the board.
Leboeuf has made it his preferred replacement candidate very clear.
“I don’t know, but it’d be a very good idea,” the former France international told ESPN FC when asked if he thinks Zidane would want the Chelsea job.
“I would be very pleased.
“I never asked him if he wanted to go come to England.
“I asked him if he didn’t speak English, but he responded in English. So, you know, he speaks English a little bit.
“Yeah, he could be in charge of Chelsea, and I’d be very, very happy about it.”
As a three-time Champions League-winning manager, Zidane, who has been out of work since leaving Real Madrid in 2021, seems to be one of the best options if Chelsea decide to appoint a new manager.
As a former Los Blancos boss, he is clearly experienced in handling egos in a dressing room full of star players.
But at the same time, Zidane has never managed outside Real Madrid, so some may have some reservations about his capability as a tactician.
