Rio Ferdinand predicts the next Chelsea manager and this is not who fans think; Who he named.
Ferdinand, who was speaking on the YouTube channel Rio Ferdinand Presents FIVE, made an attempt at predicting some managerial appointments.
He predicts Pochettino could return to London, this time with Chelsea. Meanwhile, Spurs could get Julian Nagelsmann.
“I’m going Pochettino to Chelsea because [Daniel] Levy doesn’t look interested at the moment; he would have taken him already if he was going to go to Spurs… I think Nagelsman might go Spurs.”
It’s going to be interesting to see if Chelsea’s board do make a quick appointment and get somebody in the hotseat in time for the Champions League quarter-finals against Real Madrid.
The Blues are still in with a fighting chance of European glory this season, albeit they’re big underdogs right now.
If someone can get an immediate new manager bounce, perhaps Chelsea could still salvage what has been a really tough season to watch for supporters.
Pochettino has Premier League know-how and a decent CV. However, would he be the right fit at Stamford Bridge?
