Chelsea’s favoured manager candidate keen on taking role with things falling into place

Things look like they are falling into place now for Chelsea to appoint their next manager very soon after parting ways with head coach Mauricio Pochettino earlier this week.

It seems that Pochettino and Chelsea just couldn’t see a way back together and decided to part by mutual consent after a bunch of disagreements between the pair.

Sources: Chelsea have discussed the son of former successful Blues manager for role at the club!

And now we are seeing all sorts of names flying around being linked with Chelsea across the last 24 hours, and there is apparently one favoured (and underwhelming) main candidate to take the position.

So Chelsea apparently want Kieran McKenna from Ipswich Town who has never managed in the top flight and has only been a manager since 2021, as their next manager to come in to the pressure-filled environment of managing Chelsea Football Club.

And apparently McKenna is keen on taking the position as well. That is according to The Daily Mail last night at least.

They claim McKenna is interested in the Chelsea vacancy. Their sources close to McKenna have described a desire to challenge himself at the highest possible level. He is assessing his options.

What could possibly go wrong?


A lot, A LOT could go wrong. Chelsea fans are already irate about the links they are seeing to be their new manager, and many of them have been left unimpressed with links to McKenna too.

We saw how they even booed Mauricio Pochettino and were chanting for a Jose Mourinho return the season just gone when things were gloomy. We saw how toxic it got in the stands and on social media. We saw the pressure that Pochettino was under to deliver. And we have consistently seen how hard it is to manage at a club like Chelsea.

How on earth will the inexperienced McKenna fair if he is to get the job? I fear it!

  1. Not another never been? Potter, Pochetino, now McKenna. The club needs an experienced top flight Manager, with a reputation to motivate not another waster.
