“Chelsea would be a better bet” – Top coach advised to wait for potential Chelsea job

There is a bit of a manager situation going on right now in football, and the rumours are circulating even deeper now that Tottenham manager Antonio Conte has been sacked.

And before that at the end of last week, Bayern Munich sacked their manager Julian Nagelsmann and replacing him with another former Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel.

Sources: Chelsea managerial situation explained – Julian Nagelsmann and Graham Potter!

So as you can see, Chelsea are already heavily involved and that is even before we start talking about the safety of their own manager Graham Potter.

Nagelsmann is obviously going to be spoken about in the same breath as Chelsea going forward, but it is Tottenham who have the vacant post right now and are the ones being linked with Nagelsmann, but could he end up going to Chelsea?

ESPN journalist Mark Ogden is certainly not ruling that out, and you’d probably be a fool to completely rule it out.

Odgen thinks Potter has to be ‘careful’ in the Chelsea hot seat, as he responded to the possibility of Nagelsmann heading to West London and not north London, as he told ESPN.

“Let’s us see where they (Chelsea) finish,” said Ogden. “Seventh, eight or tenth. And if they are out of the Champions League.

“They are saying all the right things that Potter is safe, but from Nagelsmann’s perspective, Chelsea would be a better bet than Tottenham because they have invested in the squad.

“It’s just a case of having a coach who can knit it all together and get some very good players playing together. I am not sure Potter has that ability.

“It’s like Bayern saying Nagelsmann is their guy until 11 pm and Chelsea saying the same with Potter. Clubs always back their manager until they don’t. When they don’t, then they are gone – that’s what Potter has to be aware of, if Chelsea don’t finish in the Champions League places, then he has to be careful.”
