According to our friends over at CaughtOffside Todd Boehly may seriously consider Oliver Glasner as Graham Potter’s successor should Chelsea’s poor form under the Englishman continue, Christian Falk warned in his latest exclusive column for CaughtOffside.
The Blues’ owner is currently understood to be keen on the idea of protecting the former Brighton and Hove Albion coach ‘for as long as he can’, though may consider alternative options if the going keeps getting tough.
“I think Todd Boehly will try to hold on to Graham Potter for as long as he can given how disastisfied fans were with the decision to axe Thomas Tuchel,” the journalist wrote.
“If Potter doesn’t improve Chelsea’s form in the league, however, Boehly may be forced to look at alternative managerial options anyway.
“We heard that already in the summer Chelsea knocked on Oliver Glasner’s door to see if there was any interest in joining the project in London as manager. It wasn’t so concrete and, in the end, they went with Potter.
“That being said, Boehly will have been very impressed with how Glasner won the Europa League with Frankfurt. If he has to get rid of Potter, Glasner could be a viable option. It’s worth remembering that Chelsea’s technical director, Christopher Vivell, did originate from RB Leipzig.
