Luis Enrique travelling to London for Chelsea manager talks
After sacking Graham Potter, Chelsea is reportedly targeting Luis Enrique as their next manager.
Enrique was previously suggested by Cristiano Ronaldo to take over the hot seat at Manchester United, but Ralf Rangnick was ultimately chosen to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Chelsea Chairman Toddy Boehly is currently searching for a replacement for the 47-year-old Potter, who was dismissed on April 2nd. The English coach was disappointed by winning only 12 games since replacing Thomas Tuchel, leading Chelsea to drop to 11th place in the Premier League table.
Luis Enrique is now seen as a strong candidate to take over the hot seat at Stamford Bridge. The former Barcelona coach was previously proposed by Ronaldo to the Manchester United board to replace Solskjaer, but Rangnick was chosen instead.
Enrique helped Barcelona win nine titles from 2014 to 2017, including a Champions League and a La Liga title before leaving the Nou Camp. After a year off in 2018, he took over as head coach of the Spanish national team.
Enrique led La Roja to an impressive Euro 2020 semi-final, but a disappointing round-of-16 exit at the 2022 World Cup led the 52-year-old coach to resign. According to AS, Chelsea’s Technical Director, Christopher Vivell, is a big fan of Luis Enrique and is preparing for talks between the two sides.
Currently, Chelsea is being led by interim manager Bruno Saltor as they host Liverpool at Stamford Bridge.
