Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly could go down a number of routes if Mauricio Pochettino needs replacing this summer. The former Tottenham boss is under intense pressure to oversee a strong finish to the season after Tuesday’s hammering at Arsenal, and failure could see him out of a job. Here, Express Sport takes you through five managers in contention…

A treble winner in 2019/20 during his time at Bayern Munich, Flick has a decorated managerial CV but he is yet to venture into the English game.

Jose Mourinho
Now the bookies’ favourite to come back for a third spell at Chelsea, no manager in the modern era knows the club better than Mourinho. The 61-year-old, who dubbed himself ‘the special one’ shortly after first landing in the Premier League 20 years ago, left AS Roma in January, freeing him up to go for a fourth Premier League title – even if his former side are currently struggling to stay in the top half. Ruben Amorim
Linked with just about every top job in Europe, Amorim is hot property as he closes in on a second Liga Portugal title with Sporting.

A move to the Premier League clearly interests the Portuguese as he jetted to London earlier this week for talks with West Ham. This may include adverts from us and 3rd parties based on our understanding. You can unsubscribe at any time. Read our Privacy Policy

Roberto De Zerbi
Alongside Amorim on the shortlist is Brighton manager De Zerbi.

The Italian’s attacking style of play has made him a hero on the south coast and a respected manager among Europe’s elite, and he has so far resisted the Seagulls’ attempts to renew his contract, which expires in 2026 and includes a £12.8million release clause. Thomas Tuchel
If Mourinho can come back for another pop at Stamford Bridge success, why can’t Tuchel? Although Tuchel has already been sacked once by Boehly, the Chelsea co-owner has since learned that the grass isn’t always greener, and the 50-year-old may have been the right man to begin with.
