Only one triumph in the previous six Premier League matches and only four points won, are a clear signal that things are not going in the desired direction at Stamford Bridge at the moment. Chelsea lost a lot of points in a month, and the stories about the trust of the management towards Frank Lampard are getting louder.
Although the leaders of the London team pointed out that they would give the current strategist time and wait for the results, England media reveal that the list of potential successors of the former captain of Blues has already been defined.
According to the Daily Mail, a possible mistake against Fulham in the match of the 19th round of the Premier League scheduled for next Friday would set off a red alarm, and the first option, in that case, to come to Lampard's place would be German strategist Thomas Tuchel.
The strategist who recently parted ways with Paris Saint-Germain, apart from the fact that he is currently without engagement, experience, and success in the French club, stood out as an ideal solution, especially if Abramovich and his closest associates were to decide on a new helmsman overnight.
Massimiliano Allegri, an Italian strategist who has been without an engagement since the parting with Juventus in 2019, who was previously contacted by Chelsea, is also competing as a possible emergency solution. In addition to the Germans and Italians, competitors for the bench at Stamford Bridge are Premier League coaches Ralph Hassenhuttl and Brendan Rodgers, however, in London, they are aware that it would be unrealistic to expect Southampton and Leicester coach to leave work unfinished and leave current teams in this part of the season.
Hasenhuttl recommended the London club with the excellent results he records with Southampton. Southampton has improved their form since the September series of defeats and lost only two out of 15 games, against the Manchester teams, which brought them to the sixth position and dreams of going to Europe.
Very good results were decorated by the recent victory over Liverpool (1: 0), and the Austrian demonstrated his coaching skills away to Chelsea during October (3: 3). Rogers, the second Premier League option, is also the creator of one of the most pleasant surprises of the championship.
Although the Foxes have used the football public to good results in previous years, the re-candidacy for the championship trophy, along with Liverpool and Manchester City, which are quite dominant in the previous two years, is a confirmation of the coaching skills they are looking for in London.
The wish of the Blues, which currently seems to be the most difficult, is Julian Nagelsman. The strategist from Leipzig achieved phenomenal results with the Bundesliga in the previous period, so it is difficult to expect that he will change jobs in the near future
