Former Real Madrid Manager Linked with Chelsea Job

Julen Lopetegui has expressed his interest in taking the Chelsea job if Maurizio Sarri discontinues

The former Real Madrid manager has been without a job since being released by the Spanish giants. Lopetegui’s appointment as the Madrid manager was announced when he was handling the charge at Spanish national team and as a result, he was relieved of his duty.

Despite Chelsea’s strong finish in the Premier League Sarri’s future remains a big question mark. A large section of the Chelsea supporters have already voiced their concern about the manager.

Also, his way of handling a number of Blues players has further complicated the situation. The manager ignored the likes of Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ruben Loftus-Cheek for the most of the season but was compelled to recall them in the last part of the season.

Lopetegui is managed by super agent Jorge Mendes who has a good relationship with the Blues hierarchy. the manager miserably failed in his last two managerial roles and it is very unlikely the West London outfit would offer him a return to management.

Sarri’s departure could see the arrival of Frank Lampard at the Stamford Bridge who is now managing Derby County.
