Who is the Chelsea FC Manager Now?
After nearly one year at the Blues, Thomas Tuchel was sacked by The Blues after the 1-0 defeat to Dinamo Zagreb.
Following the sacking of Thomas Tuchel in September 2022, the Stamford Bridge club confirmed that Graham Potter will be Chelsea’s new manager in 2022 with a five-year contract having been signed.
According to sources, Todd Boehly acted quickly to sack the German after a Champions League defeat to Dinamo Zagreb. He aimed to quickly put a new Chelsea FC manager in place before the weekend Premier League encounter with Fulham. And Potter is the man who replaces Tuchel.

Who is the Most Successful Manager in The Blues History?
Jose Mourinho is the current most successful Chelsea manager. He has earned the title of “Special One.”
After firing Claudio Ranieri after the 2003–04 season, the Portuguese manager was Abramovich’s first official recruitment as manager.
When Mourinho initially arrived in England in 2004, he practiced what he preached. He assisted the Blues in capturing their first league crown in fifty years while allowing just 15 goals all season and facing just one setback.
Long-term results showed that such a choice was extremely wise. The English club went on to win back-to-back Premier League championships and set a mark for the least goals allowed with just 15 in the 2004/05 campaign.
During Mourinho’s initial tenure at the club, which lasted a little more than three years, they also achieved the FA Cup and two League Cup championships.
The beginning of The Blues’ hegemony in English football would come with his hiring. That’s why he is widely considered the club’s best manager of all time.
Who is Chelsea Longest Serving Manager?
The longest serving Chelsea manager in history is David Calderhead. From 1907 through 1933, the ex Chelsea manager was in command of The Blue! That amounts to 26 years. It’s 966 games in total!
Calderhead was the first-ever manager at the Blues. He participated in several cup finals, but he was never able to bring home any trophy. Calderhead sadly passed away at the age of 73, only five years after leaving Stamford Bridge.
Who Was Manager When Chelsea Won the Champions League?
Di Matteo – 2012
Di Matteo was the manager when The Blue won the Champions League in 2012. He was a club legend who played 166 times for the Blues.
This was a result of his immediate success as a manager. He successfully led the Blues to their first-ever Champions League triumph and seventh FA Cup championship.
Some of the club’s most memorable moments occurred during their European Cup journey. There was their turnaround against Napoli, Fernando Torres’ dramatic goal against Barcelona at the Nou Camp, or Didier Drogba’s game-winning penalty against Bayern Munich in the championship match.

Thomas Tuchel – 2021
Thomas Tuchel was the manager when The Blue won the Champions League in 2021. When the Blues defeated Villarreal on penalties to win the UEFA Super Cup, Thomas Tuchel created history.
Tuchel is now the only The Blue boss in history to win both the Champions League and UEFA Super Cup at the same time.
Following Tuchel’s January replacement of Frank Lampard, history has again repeated itself. This year, the club is on track for a top-four position in the Premier League under the German. He has also guided this team to the FA Cup and Champions League finals.
At the 2021 Champions League final, Kai Havertz scored in Porto to defeat Manchester City 1-0, and Tuchel executed a brilliant tactical scheme. The following January, he received special recognition for his efforts in Europe when he was voted The Best FIFA Men’s Coach at The Best FIFA Awards.
