Chelsea’s sexy shortlist to replace Mauricio Pochettino

The announcement had the effect of a bomb last night. 48 hours after Chelsea’s unexpected qualification in the Europa Conference League, Mauricio Pochettino was dismissed from his coaching duties. If the possibility of seeing the Argentinian pack up had already been mentioned earlier in the season, the timing of the officialization may surprise, at a time when the Blues finally seemed to have found their cruising speed (5 victories in the 5 last Premier League matches and a 6th place).

But no time to look in the rearview mirror, Chelsea are already busy finding their new coach. According to Daily Mail, it is towards a younger profile that the management of the London club now wishes to turn. The publication cites in particular the name of Kieran McKenna, still unknown a few months ago, but stunning this season with an improbable rise to the Premier League at the head of Ipswich. For his part, The Evening Standard even cites him among the serious candidates. The name of Sebastian Hoeness, qualified for the Champions League thanks to his incredible 2nd place in the Bundesliga with Stuttgart, also returns. In Germany, he is one of the faces of this new wave of promising young coaches.

If Sky Sports Germany mentioned the possibility of seeing Thomas Tuchel turn back, a year and a half after his departure from Chelsea, the Mirror and the Daily Mail reject this hypothesis. Chelsea would have no intention of bringing back their former coach, and the German is not necessarily excited by the idea of ​​reuniting with an ex, even if the English Championship still attracts him. Finally, the Daily Mail cites the name of Vincent Kompany and goes even further: the London club has already expressed its interest in the Belgian. Summer promises to be scorching.
