Next Chelsea manager odds: Pochettino the favourite to take over at Stamford Bridge

Pochettino looks set for west London.

Mauricio Pochettino


Chelsea sacked Graham Potter as manager after a nightmare spell at Stamford Bridge and they replaced him with Blues hero Frank Lampard for the remainder of the season.

Their form under Lampard has been dismal, so another manager will come in ahead of the 2023/24 Premier League season.

So, who will Todd Boehly turn to next as he continues his game of real life Football Manager? Here’s the full run down on who’ll be the next Chelsea manager.


Mauricio Pochettino

How’s this for a role reversal, a former Tottenham manager going to Chelsea?

The Argentine has been out of work since leaving PSG and he’s waiting for the right project to return to management. He knows a thing or two about trigger happy owners and temperamental superstar players from his time at PSG so he could be the perfect fit for Chelsea.

Marcelo Gallardo

Marcelo Gallardo is a free agent after leaving River Plate earlier this year. The Argentine won plenty of silverware in South America including the Copa Libertadores a couple of times.

However, is he a big enough name to please the Stamford Bridge faithful?

Vincent Kompany

Vincent Kompany has guided Burnley back to the Premier League and the former defender has transformed their style of play to a fluid attacking side.

He’s been tipped to replace Pep Guardiola at Manchester City when the time comes, while Tottenham are also interested. It could be a tough opportunity to turn down if the call came.

Julian Nagelsmann Bayern Munich

Jose Mourinho

Could it be third time lucky for Jose Mourinho at Chelsea? He was the Special One in his first spell with the Blues and while it ended on a sour note, he did win the Premier League in 2015 in his second reign.

Mourinho is currently in charge of Roma, who are having a solid season. Would he quit Italy for a Blues reunion?

Frank Lampard

The Chelsea hero is in charge until the end of the season after replacing Graham Potter. Things haven’t gone to plan for the former midfielder as the Blues were knocked out of the Champions League and they’re also struggling to win a game in the Premier League.



Luis Enrique

Former Spain and Barcelona boss Luis Enrique has been making noises about a move to the Premier League and his desire to manage a big club who can challenge for trophies. A proven winner, could this be a match made in heaven? It seems he could end up at Chelsea or Tottenham…

Julian Nagelsmann

Julian Nagelsmann was surprisingly given the axe at Bayern Munich recently and like Enrique, he seems destined for Stamford Bridge or the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. He plays good football but does he lack the killer edge required to succeed at Chelsea?
