Sampaoli emerges as a serious Chelsea candidate

by -

Former Chile manage Jorge Sampaoli has emerged as a very serious candidate to take the Chelsea job in the summer. He is the latest of a host of managers who have been linked with the vacancy including the likes of Massimo Allegri and Diego Simeone of Juventus and Atletico Madrid respectively.

Although Sampaoli may lack experience compared to the other managers Chelsea have been linked to, he has shown that he can lead a team to success. Just last year he lead an impressive Chile side to victory against Argentina in the Copa America and was also shortlisted for Coach of the Year. But he quit the national side after a dispute with the national federation.

Should he gain the position as the manager of Chelsea FC, he will bring a highly energetic and attacking style of play to Stamford Bridge.
