Two candidates down, plenty to go for the west London club, after Luciano Spalletti has decided to stick with Roma instead of taking charge at the madhouse that is Stamford Bridge. The Daily Mirror reports that the Italian has rejected the opportunity to replace Avram Grant, days after Carlo Ancelotti also shunned Kenyon & Co in order to stick with Milan.
What is it about working in a pressure-cooker environment under the watchful eye of an impatient ruthless Russian oligarch that seems to put managers off? Plus working with Kenyon to grow the brand must be a really pleasant experience too.
Chelsea’s managerial search lurched further into chaos last night as Roma boss Luciano Spalletti became the latest man to turn his back on the job.
While bookmakers offer odds on who will be next Chelsea manager, maybe a more pertinent market would be to have prices about which man will reject the Champions League runners-up instead!
