Chelsea have made a sharp turn from Julian Nagelsmann to Luis Enrique, British media reported.

‘The Sun’ reported on the 4th (Korean time) that ‘Enrique has emerged as the number one candidate for Chelsea manager’.

Originally Chelsea’s target was Nagelsmann. The reason for the change to Enrique is the so-called ‘gardening leave’. This refers to a contract that accepts retirement on the condition that it prohibits immediate employment with a competing company. It means ‘transfer prohibited’.

The Sun said, ‘Initially, the most likely successor to Graham Porter (the sacked Chelsea manager) was Nagelsmann. However, Nagelsmann was on self-employment leave. It is reported that Bayern Munich’s permission is required to sign Nagelsmann.

Bayern Munich recently sacked Nagelsmann and appointed Thomas Tuchel as their new manager. This behind-the-scenes story was hidden in the condition of parting with Nagelsmann.

The Sun predicts that it will not be easy for Chelsea to get permission from Munich. This is because there is a possibility that Munich and Chelsea will clash in the Champions League semi-final. In the quarter-finals, Chelsea faced Real Madrid and Munich faced Manchester City. If you win each, you will meet in the quarterfinals.

The Sun said, “Former Barcelona coach and Spanish national team coach Enrique has many fans at Stamford Bridge (Chelsea’s home stadium). Unprecedented success in Barcelona. I expect to achieve the same feat at Chelsea.”

Enrique started his coaching career in 2008 as a coach for the Barcelona B team. He went on to coach AS Roma and Celta Vigo before taking the helm of Barcelona in 2014.

In his first season at Barcelona (2014-2015), Enrique won the Primera Liga, Copedel Rey and Champions League treble. 메이저놀이터

He led the Spanish national team to the semi-finals of Euro 2020 and runner-up in the 2021 Nations League. At the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, it was also a victim of an unexpected loss to Morocco in the round of 16.

Meanwhile, in addition to Nagelsmann and Enrique, Chelsea are linked with Mauricio Pochettino, Oliver Glasner and Luciano Spalletti.
