LAGOS, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA) – Ruben Amorim, Sporting head coach, is apparently no longer involved in Chelsea’s search for a new permanent manager.
After Graham Potter’s short 31-game tenure at Stamford Bridge came to an end, the Blues compiled a lengthy list of potential replacements for his position.
The Blues talked with Amorim before after dismissing Champions League-winning coach Thomas Tuchel, and they have long respected his tactical abilities.
The Athletic reports that the Blues will once again be looking elsewhere in 2023 because no deal was made at that point. This is due to the fact that Amorim has stated unequivocally that he is content in Lisbon and has no ambition to succeed temporary manager Frank Lampard in west London.
Co-owners Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali are taking a back seat after having their fingers burned by Potter as the Blues continue to sulk in the bottom half of the Premier League. Instead, Chelsea co-sporting directors Laurence Stewart and Paul Winstanley are spearheading the search for a new manager.
Chelsea has scheduled numerous rounds of discussions and interviews as they aim to hire the best candidate for a challenging rebuilding position. “A handful of options” are reportedly still in the running as the Blues hope to have a long-term hire in place by the end of the 2022–23 season.
