There is criticism about the position of Chelsea coach Graham Porter as he continues to slump after sluggishness.
Here, an influential reporter sparked fire by mentioning a famous coach that the Chelsea board is watching.
Chelsea lost 0-2 in the 29th round of the 2022/23 Premier League against Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge on the 2nd (Korean time). 스포츠토토
Chelsea collapsed after conceding an early goal to Ollie Watkins in the 18th minute of the first half and conceding an additional goal to John McGinn in the 11th minute of the second half. Chelsea fell to 11th place (10 wins, 8 draws, 10 losses), giving up 10th place to Fulham (11 wins, 6 draws, 11 losses, 39 points) due to the defeat that day.
At the post-match press conference, Porter said: “I came in September and there are a lot of games, a lot of injuries. It’s hard to be consistent. It’s frustrating to lose today. At home, we felt the pain of the fans. We have to go for the game,” he said.
Manager Porter took office in September last year after coach Thomas Tuchel was sacked, but based on the league standard, 22 matches are 7 wins, 7 draws and 8 losses, and sluggish performance continues.
The Chelsea board is trusting Porter, who is not performing well right away, for appointing him from a long-term perspective, but it is unknown what will happen if the season ends with current grades.
Aside from Chelsea’s current UEFA Champions League quarter-finals, failure to secure a place in next season’s Champions League could have a significant impact on the club’s finances.
Fabricio Romano, a journalist specializing in the European transfer market, mentioned the possibility of Nagelsmann, saying, “Director Julian Nagelsmann has always been affectionately received as one of Chelsea’s candidates for the next manager.”
Coach Nagelsmann was sacked from the Bayern Munich managership during the A match in March.
Nagelsmann is also making results in the Champions League, but in the Bundesliga, he competed for the championship with Dortmund and Union Berlin, failing to record overwhelming league results.
In addition, management failures such as discord with the players were also cited as reasons for his hardship.
Nagelsmann immediately began attracting interest from several clubs. It has been linked with Tottenham Hotspur, which became vacant due to the sacking of manager Antonio Conte, and Real Madrid, where the future of manager Carlo Ancelotti is uncertain.
However, according to recent reports, Nagelsmann has dropped Tottenham from consideration. “Tottenham is not an option for Nagelsmann at this stage,” Sky Sports German correspondent Florian Plettenberg said.
