Chelsea Eyes 3 Coaches for Managerial Role After Pochettino’s Exit


Chelsea is considering Ipswich Town’s Kieran McKenna, Leicester City’s Enzo Maresca, and Brentford’s Thomas Frank as candidates for their next manager, according to BBC Sport on Thursday.

This follows the recent departure of Mauricio Pochettino by mutual consent.

McKenna, 38, who led Ipswich Town to promotion from the Championship this season, has already been contacted. However, Chelsea faces competition from Brighton and Manchester United for his services, and his move to Chelsea would require a compensation fee exceeding £4 million.

Enzo Maresca, 44, is another strong candidate, having guided Leicester to the Championship title and previously worked as a coach under Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.

Thomas Frank, 50, is also in the running for his success with Brentford, where he secured their promotion to the Premier League and maintained their position in the top tier.

Additionally, Chelsea has a fourth, undisclosed candidate on their shortlist. Although Stuttgart manager Sebastian Hoeness was considered, he is now expected to stay in Germany.

With pre-season training starting on July 4, Chelsea aims to finalize their managerial appointment soon. The team, which finished sixth in the Premier League and reached the Carabao Cup final last season, will soon embark on a tour of the United States under new leadership.
