Graham Potter Faces Uncertain Future at Chelsea

Despite being appointed as Chelsea FC manager on 8 September 2022, Graham Potter is now massive odds-on when it comes to the Premier League Sack Race betting market. The 47-year-old saw his team lose 2-0 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and it has now been five top-flight matches without a victory for the Blues.

Therefore, speculation is mounting that we'll see a change of manager at Stamford Bridge and Mauricio Pochettino remains the bookmaker favourite to replace Potter. The Argentine is trading at 2/1 for the high-profile position but he's also among the favourites to become the next Tottenham boss.

The football betting sites have Zinedine Zidane as second favourite and the Frenchman has long been linked with the top English football clubs. Luis Enrique and Marcelo Bielsa are also among the favourites to replace Potter.

Time For Mauricio Pochettino to Return to England? (2/1 with BetVictor)

Thomas Tuchel made the switch from Paris Saint-Germain to Chelsea two years ago, and perhaps we will see the same thing happen with Mauricio Pochettino. The former Tottenham manager is a free agent right now, and he might be keen to take charge of a team that have the resources to challenge on a domestic and European front.

Pochettino was previously successful with Spurs and guided the north London outfit to the Champions League final against the odds before losing to Liverpool. The Argentine transformed the fortunes of the club, and the manager was largely popular with supporters right up until the point that he left the club.

After being betting favourite for the Manchester United manager's position on a number of occasions, Pochettino will be among the favourites to take charge at Chelsea, and he has that experience of managing egos thanks to his time at PSG. While things didn't work out brilliantly with the French club, he certainly has the track record to be a viable contender.

Zinedine Zidane Ready to Make His Mark in England (5/1 with BetVictor)

It's often the case that we see Zinedine Zidane's name appear near the top of a next manager betting market on betting apps when it comes to a high-profile club. Therefore, it's no surprise to see the former Real Madrid manager featuring in the shortlist, and there could be an appetite to hire someone who has previously done excellently with Real Madrid.

Zidane's managerial experience has been solely with Real, although the Frenchman has previously been linked with the Manchester United position, and it had even been reported that he was learning English to potentially adapt to life in the Premier League.

The 50-year-old has previously won three Champions League titles with Real Madrid along with two La Liga titles. He has experience of handling big egos in the dressing room, and it would be no surprise to see Zidane express an interest in replacing Potter.

John Terry Would Be a Popular Replacement for Potter (8/1 with Betvictor)

Perhaps it's hard to believe that Chelsea's owners would roll the dice and appoint John Terry as their next manager. After all, the club legend might be a hugely popular figure with the supporters at Stamford Bridge, although he has never held a management role since retiring as a player.

Terry was part of Dean Smith's backroom staff at Aston Villa and helped the Villans reach the Premier League a few seasons ago, before he subsequently left the Midlands club in order to pursue his own coaching ambitions.

Nothing has come to fruition on that front, although Terry would clearly be interested in being part of a coaching team at Chelsea, even if the jury is out on whether he can be the main manager.

Chelsea Fans Chant Thomas Tuchel's Name (16/1 with BetVictor)

Thomas Tuchel wasn't given many games of the 2022-23 season before Chelsea decided to part company with someone who famously clashed with Antonio Conte during a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge. Since leaving the London club, the German has been linked to a number of managerial roles and perhaps it's not out of the question that he will be lured back to his former employer.

Owner Todd Boehly will surely have mixed emotions about allowing Tuchel to leave in such an abrupt manner, and the former Borussia Dortmund coach had previously helped Chelsea to win the Champions League, with the supporters chanting the German's name during an FA Cup pasting at the Etihad Stadium.

Tuchel might feel as though bridges have been burnt at Chelsea and a new project is clearly a more likely outcome for a 49-year-old who steered Paris Saint-Germain to a Champions League final in 2020.

Will Brendan Rodgers Return to Chelsea? (16/1 with BetVictor)

Brendan Rodgers does have a Chelsea connection and the 49-year-old could potentially be interested in leaving the sinking ship that is Leicester and make the switch to a club which always has enormous potential. Rodgers was reserve team coach at the west London club between 2006 and 2008, with the Northern Irishman then embarking on a managerial career which has largely been successful.

Rodgers has been in charge of several high-profile clubs, with several years spent at Liverpool between 2012-2015 where Rodgers created an entertaining team who came within a whisker of winning the Premier League title. He was then successful with Celtic before getting the chance to manage in the English Premier League again, and he has won the FA Cup with the Foxes.

Rodgers also steered Leicester to the Europa League spots in two consecutive seasons, and this move would be an opportunity for the manager to work with Wesley Fofana and Ben Chilwell again. However, some will point to the fact that the magic has worn off at the King Power this season.

Could Simeone be Prised from Madrid? (16/1 with BetVictor)

Diego Simeone has regularly been linked to top managerial roles in England, with the Argentine having achieved great things in charge of Atletico Madrid, and it’s likely that the 52-year-old will be able to take his pick of the vacant positions when the time finally arrives for him to leave the Wanda Metropolitano.

El Cholo did suggest he might leave the Spanish capital at the end of the 2018/19 season, but he remains in situ.

Chelsea have apparently been tracking Simeone for some time, and it’s hard not to be impressed by someone who has ensured Atletico Madrid have competed for domestic and European silverware during the past few years. However, results have not always been achieved with glittering performances and the Argentine does favour a pragmatic approach to the game.

Could Didier Deschamps Be Lured Away From France Job?

Didier Deschamps enjoyed a brief spell at Chelsea as a player, turning out for the Blues on 27 occasions between 1999-2000. The Frenchman has since enjoyed a very successful managerial career, most notably in charge of the France national team, which he has steered to two World Cup finals.

Deschamps enjoyed a 2018 World Cup victory in Russia with Les Bleus, before helping France to reach the World Cup final last month. On that occasion, they were beaten in a penalty shootout against Argentina, and he's highly regarded in world football and could be an interesting contender for the Chelsea job.

Deschamps does have club management experience, with the 54-year-old having been in charge of Monaco between 2001-2005, with a shorter spell at Juventus before taking over at Marseille between 2009-2012.

Would Chelsea Board Take the Plunge on Stevie G?

Steven Gerrard played in many memorable matches for Liverpool against Chelsea and famously nearly signed for the London club before deciding to remain at the Merseyside club where he remains as a legendary figure.

Gerrard cut his managerial teeth at Rangers and ended the Scottish Premiership title stranglehold that Celtic were enjoying. It was no mean feat for the Gers to not only be crowned champions, but also go the season unbeaten before Aston Villa quickly came calling.

Gerrard's time with the Villans was relatively short and the former Reds captain is now considering his next options. He's still pretty young and would surely be open to talks if the Chelsea position became vacant.

Steve Holland Has Strong Chelsea FC Connections

Steve Holland and Chelsea have previously gone together like Laurel and Hardy. The 52-year-old was in charge of the Blues reserves between 2009-11, before serving as the assistant manager of the first team between 2011-17.

He has also been assistant to Gareth Southgate when it comes to the England international set-up in recent years, and it would come as no surprise if he found himself back at Chelsea at some point in his career.

It would be interesting if Holland had any aspirations to be anything other than an assistant manager, although the bookies are likely to price up someone who has a solid reputation in the football world.
