Luis Enrique backed to replace Graham Potter as Chelsea manager in the coming weeks; Details

Potter saw his Chelsea contract started when Tuchel was sacked and he is doing absolutely worse for Chelsea so it is without doubt that Luis Enrique will do better given what he had done with Spain.

Chelsea is currently at the number 10 in the EPL table and this is the worst position they have been in in a very very long time courtesy to Graham Potter.

Chelsea brought in Enzo Fernandez, Joao Felix, Noni Madueke, Mykhaylo Mudryk, Benoit Badiashile, Malo Gusto, Andrey Santos and David Datro Fofana over the January window, and it’s thought that Potter will be given time to bed those players in.

His contract at west London is until 2027 but there surely is a need now for the English coach to start getting Chelsea firing on cylinders.

If the Blues did want to bring in Enrique, they may face competition from Atletico Madrid, who have also identified the Spaniard as an ideal new head coach.

The Rojiblancos may be in their final season with Diego Simeone and Enrique is thought to be ready to take up a new club opportunity in Europe.

Enrique’s CV

The 52-year-old left his position as Spain’s head coach after a poor 2022 World Cup campaign in Qatar. He could only get his home nation to the round of 16, where they were defeated by Morocco on penalties.

But Enrique has enjoyed spells at Roma, Celta Vigo and Barcelona prior to this.

He managed to win the Champions League, La Liga and Copa del Rey treble in the first season of Barcelona season and was consequently named the World’s Best Club Coach.

The Spaniard won another La Liga title and two more Copa del Reys, a Club World Cup, UEFA Super Cup and Supercopa de Espana before leaving his post in 2017.
