The managerial post at Chelsea will have the word ‘interim’ prefixed as long as Roman Abramovich is in town and the club will once again be in the market for a new boss at the end of the season. Rafa Benitez has just come to terms with his interim status at the club and with the Spaniard sure to leave the club in the summer, Chelsea face a major decision regarding their hire and fire policy. The Blues have lost out on most of their intended targets like Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp, forcing the press to light up proceedings by linking Jose Mourinho with a dramatic return.
Another ex-Chelsea manager is also seemingly interested in returning to his old stomping ground after Gianluca Vialli voluntarily dropped his name into the hat. The Italian enjoyed a successful spell at Stamford Bridge at the turn of the century, winning five trophies with the club during his short-spell. But player power was again the downfall of the manager as Vialli was sacked in 2001 after falling out with the dressing room.
