Chelsea Opinion: 2 ideal candidates to succeed Sarri as Chelsea boss

Chelsea have always been a club that expect results as soon as a new manager comes in. While this creates a toxic environment within the football club, everyone associated with the club has already agreed that this is how this Blues side will be run.

For anyone who conjures up a reason as to why owner Roman Abramovich is spoiling this football club, the thought of all the world-class players and trophies that he’s brought to Stamford Bridge is enough to silence them.

It is now widely accepted that this is how Chelsea is run and if a new manager isn’t able to deliver the results within the timeframe, it’s only a matter of time before they start the search for yet another replacement.

The most recent victim of the Chelsea owner’s wrath was former Italian national team manager Antonio Conte, who delivered Premier League glory to Chelsea in his first season in charge. Despite winning the FA Cup in his 2nd season, it wasn’t enough as the final would turn out to be his last game.

His successor was Maurizio Sarri, who started his tenure as the Chelsea boss extremely well but over time, the realities of the Premier League caught up with the Blues. They currently find themselves 6th, hoping for Champions League football next season.

With a trophy-less season still on the cards at Stamford Bridge, the search for Sarri’s replacement has already begun, as per reports from The Sun, which are suggesting that they have identified two possible replacements. 

Here are the two people touted to take over from Sarri in the Chelsea hot-seat:

Frank Lampard

The former Chelsea player only recently began his coaching career but has done a fairly decent job of managing the EFL Championship’s 8th-placed side Derby County, who despite their low average age, remain within 2 points of Middlesbrough in 5th.

While his odds of becoming the new Chelsea manager will take a big hit because of his inexperience, the relationship he shares with the club and the hierarchy will come as a massive boost to this flat Chelsea side. In fact, he can the perfect man to motivate this world-class players again.
