Chelsea have a shortlist of potential managers to replace Frank Lampard as boss of the club – and amongst the names already linked with the job is RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann, according to Christian Falk.
Julian Nagelsmann Linked With Chelsea Managerial Job
Chelsea Contemplating the Future of Frank Lampard
The Blues are rumoured to have been considering the future of boss Lampard for some time now, with the club without a win in the Premier League in their last five games.
It’s a run that has seen them drop down to ninth in the table and owner Roman Abramovich is believed to be considering potential replacements.
Several Names on Chelsea Shortlist Including Julian Nagelsmann
Several names have been linked with the role, from Thomas Tuchel to Brendan Rodgers, and a report from Christian Falk has claimed that there is indeed a list of potential replacements which include these bosses that have already been linked.
However, the list is also believed to include current RB Leipzig boss Julien Nagelsmann, a name that has been linked with the job in the past but not officially linked with the job as Tuchel, Rodgers, Ralph Hassenhuttl and Massimiliano Allegri have recently.
Nagelsmann has managed two clubs so far (not including his stints as a reserve team manager) in 1899 Hoffenheim and RB Leipzig. He’s yet to manage outside of Germany but his record showcases a manager who could certainly be considered one of the best in Europe.
Impressed as a Manager in the Bundesliga
Although he has yet to win a trophy as a manager, his work in the Bundesliga has not gone unnoticed. At Hoffenheim, his tactics and style of play led the club to their first ever Champions League appearance.
After his impressive showings for them, he was taken on by Leipzig where he continued to make history. By leading the club to the semi-finals of the Champions League, he became the first manager in their history to do so.
Its this kind of record-breaking management that has clearly caught the eye of Abramovich, who is now considering the man to take the reigns at Stamford Bridge.
