Top 5 available coaches if Chelsea sack Graham Potter

Chelsea are in a quite disappointing situation right now, with the team failing to succeed both in the domestic and European competitions. 

The Blues' boss Graham Potter was brought in to replace Thomas Tuchel and breathe new air into the squad. The club board shared their faith in the manager, also spending  £323 million during the January transfer window. 

The expectations were high for the Englishman but the Blues' latest bitter run in the Premier League could now make it a step closer to his departure from Stamford Bridge.

Let's take a look at the top 5 possible candidates that could replace Graham Potter at Chelsea. 


1. Zinedine Zidane

Zinedine Zidane has established himself as a highly successful coach, with a number of impressive accomplishments to his name.

The Frenchman became the first coach to win the UEFA Champions League title in his first full season with Real Madrid. He led the club to two more Champions League titles in the next years and went on to win two La Liga titles and two FIFA Club World Cups with Los Blancos. 

Zidane's ability to get the best out of his players in big matches was a key factor in his success as a coach. His skills and tactical flexibility as well as his ability to motivate and inspire his players have been widely praised.


2. Joachim Low

Joachim Low is best known for leading the German national team to their 2014 World Cup victory in Brazil.

One of Low's key strengths is his ability to adapt his team's tactics according to the opposition's strengths and weaknesses. He also has a reputation for being a good communicator and for building strong relationships with his players.

Low is widely regarded as one of the best coaches in the world. His teams are known for playing with a high level of intensity and perseverance even in difficult situations.


3. Mauricio Pochettino

The third potential candidate to replace Potter could be Pochettino who is currently out of job following his PSG exit. He is considered one of the most talented and innovative coaches in world football.

The Argentine has a huge experience both as a player and a manager, therefore, he has a special approach to the game.

It is very likely that the Argentine international would succeed at Stamford Bridge having a solid experience with Chelsea's London rivals, Tottenham. 


4. Luis Enrique

Luis Enrique is a highly skilled coach who has achieved success at both the club and international levels.

The Spaniard is known for his tactical flexibility, while his attacking style of play and attention to detail have made him a popular choice for top-level coaching positions.

Some of his notable achievements are the Champions League and domestic titles he has won with Barcelona. Moreover, he won the UEFA Nations League in the 2018-19 season with Spain's national team. 


5. Thomas Tuchel

Since being appointed as the manager of Chelsea back in 2021, Thomas Tuchel led the team to an impressive run of form.

The German head coach implemented a tactical system that relies on a solid defensive foundation, with a focus on pressing high up the pitch and dominating possession. Under his leadership, the Blues won the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League and the Club World Cup.

Tuchel has made a very positive impact at Chelsea, so the fans would definitely be happy to see him continue his managerial spell at Stamford Bridge again and bring the club's success back in the near future.
