EPL Chelsea identify manager to replace Potter at Stamford Bridge. According to Football Insider, Chelsea is apparently interested in bringing in Brighton manager Roberto de Zerbi to replace Graham Potter, who is under criticism.
Remember that De Zerbi replaced Potter as the manager at Brighton.
De Zerbi is considered as a quality coach, and Chelsea management is said to hold him in high respect.
At Stamford Bridge, Potter is going through a rough patch after losing three straight matches across all competitions.
Even though Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly originally decided to stand with him to turn the club’s fortunes around, the Englishman is said to be on borrowed time at the west London club.
According to the article, although Chelsea is still behind Potter for the time being, there have been whispered discussions about prospective successors, with De Zerbi leading the shortlist.
The 43-year-old Italian is seen as a promising young manager who, with his cutting-edge and unconventional style of leadership, has the potential to elevate Chelsea to new heights.
