Top 5 worst Chelsea managers according to Stats
Chelsea’s worst coach ever on this list is Danny Blanchfower who managed the club from 1978 to 1979 – less than a season. Why is Blanchflower the worst manager at the English club?
Blanchflower led the team squad in 32 games with just 5 wins, 8 draws, and 19 losses. This means he has a dismal win rate of 16% – the worst of any Blues coach. In addition, the football club only scored 34 goals and conceded 68 times.
Blanchflower is best known as one of the Spurs’ greatest players, not the greatest coach at Stamford Bridge.

Villas-Boas joined Stamford Bridge after an undefeated season at Porto. He tried to play attractive attacking football at Stamford Bridge, but it just didn’t work. Although his side scored an impressive 69 goals in 40 matches, it still wasn’t enough to keep him at the club anymore.
The Blues lost 10 times and drew 11 out of a total of 40 games, he did not even last the 2011/12 season. His win percentage is only 48% which is also one of the lowest of all of the Abramovich-era managers. And based on his stat, he deserves a ticket to be on the list of Chelsea worst managers of all time.
On 21 February 2012, Villas-Boas left key players out of the team during a Champions League match against Napoli, as a result, The Blues lost 3–1. In March, Villas-Boas was sacked following a loss to West Brom.

Roberto Di Matteo
Di Matteo is one of the worst former Chelsea managers although he helped the club win the Champions League title.
The former manager did pull off winning that trophy, but, some argue that all the players won the cup themselves and Di Matteo was simply just there.
Let’s take a look at his overall games, he only led the team to win 24 games out of 42 games in total. Although the win percentage is 57%, he also lost 9 times and his side only scored 43 goals.
Abramovich then sacked the Italian pretty soon after winning the Champions League as the lack of goals the club was scoring.
That’s all about the top five Chelsea worst managers. As a top English football club, it’s hard for concessions to survive. Before each match, the leader needs to make wise decisions to bring his team higher in rank. Manager sacked is just a normal thing in this industry.
