Guus Hiddink and two other managers who could replace Conte at Chelsea



Antonio Conte is a man under pressure, the Italian according to reports from England, is on his way out of Chelsea. The London club’s hierarchy are reportedly fed up with his criticism of the club’s transfer dealings and poor run of form.

Roman Abramovich has a reputation of not being patient; the days are numbered for Conte who continues to look delusional with his press conferences. Here below are three managers who could take over from the Italian if he is shown the exit door.

Carlo Ancelotti

The Italian legend had a previous stint at Chelsea from 2009 to 2011 winning the double during his short tenure with the club. The Italian would bring man management with attacking football to Stamford Bridge. Ancelotti is well-loved among the Blues faithful and would be a popular choice to replace Conte. Although he won’t come cheap, Ancelotti is a world-class manager and he is available following his sack from German giants Bayern Munich.

Guus Hiddink

The Dutch legend is the Mr. reliable of Stamford Bridge as his previous two stints at Chelsea was to steady the team after mid-season sacking of coaches. Hiddink would have no problem handling a fragmented Chelsea team, as he is an excellent motivator of players. He would be an ideal short-term replacement for Conte, which will enable the Club run smoothly until a long-term replacement is signed.

Marco Silva

The Portuguese coach is highly-rated in England with pundits and fans impressed with his short stint in managing hull City and Watford. Silva is the youngest of the three shortlisted and at age 40 could be a long-term manager for the London club.

Silva is known for being an astute tactician and excellent man manager, with his teams known for playing attractive football. He has also had relative success with Estoril and Olympiacos. His young age and relative inexperience may count against him, but he would come on low wages as he is currently out of job.
