Chelsea linked with this season’s hottest manager despite Champions League humiliation

Chelsea have been linked with a move for another new manager, Erik ten Hag.

The Dutchman has had great success with Ajax this season, taking them to a memorable Champions League semi final and playing some absolutely sensational stuff along the way. The fact that they were dumped out by Spurs has been forgotten when you consider how well they did to get to that stage at all.

No wonder then that we’re being linked with him. It seems that Maurizio Sarri is set to leave the club to join Juventus, and despite the fact that his vision of passing football became a bit of a nightmare for fans at times, clearly the board want to press on in that direction.

Ten Hag has very limited managerial experience, and there were actually a lot of Ajax fans calling for his head earlier this season. This would be a gamble beyond all belief by our board – but then again, who would back against them doing something like this? They are anything but predictable.
