“I get the feeling” – Insider drops big claim on Todd Boehly favourite for Chelsea job

“I get the feeling” – Insider drops big claim on Todd Boehly favourite for Chelsea job

Insider Dean Jones claims that Todd Boehly wants Julian Nagelsmann to succeed Jose Mourinho as Chelsea’s manager.

What Todd Boehly news has been going on lately in Chelsea?
The American co-owner of the Blues has drawn a lot of media attention since taking on a significant position with the Premier League team.

For instance, Behdad Eghbali and Hansjorg Wyss, two of Boehly’s board members, allegedly visited the Chelsea locker room following their recent loss to Brighton and told the team that their season had been “embarrassing” (via Evening Standard).

The team might seem a little more stable there if there was any feeling of consistency off the field. The Blues have now had three managers this season, with Frank Lampard serving as the interim manager, after Thomas Tuchel and Graham Potter were ousted earlier in the year.

Boehly now seems to have his heart set on the successor to head his club. In a comment on the most recent Chasing Green Arrows episode, Jones confirmed this.

The journalist added (10:40), “I know Chelsea have spoken to him [Luis Enrique] and loved what he had to say.

“I’m aware that… In a perfect world, Todd Boehly might still go with Nagelsmann, I have a feeling.

Is Nagelsmann preferable to Luis Enrique for Chelsea?
Jones claims that the 52-year-old Spanish manager Luis Enrique, who has also been strongly connected with a transfer to the Blues, is also attracting interest from Tottenham Hotspur.

If the aforementioned remarks are genuine, it would appear Boehly would like the 35-year-old Nagelsmann to succeed Lampard in the upcoming campaign.

Younger than Luis Enrique, the German has less experience, yet he has nevertheless assisted Bayern Munich in winning the Bundesliga and two German Super Cups.

The Catalan giants won La Liga, the Champions League, the Club World Cup, and many other titles during the Spaniard’s time there, thus he virtually won everything with Barcelona.

In light of that, it is still unclear why Boehly may prefer Nagelsmann instead. After all, Potter, who is likewise quite inexperienced and young in comparison to many, was just fired by him.

But in the hopes that he would use the former Brighton manager to the fullest with the Blues, he did hire him.

However, given Munich’s recent success, Nagelsmann may be a little better equipped to handle the strain of expectation when he joins Chelsea. The American may view Nagelsmann as another talented manager with Potter-like qualities.
