Chelsea may be struggling this season and with the board on the look-out for a new manager, they can omit the possibility of luring Spaniard Luis Enrique.
The Blues are on the verge of getting rid of club manager Antonio Conte as they cannot handle his antics on and off the pitch and Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has reportedly lined up Luis Enrique to take charge of the reigns at Stamford Bridge.
The 47-year-old is currently without a job after leaving Barcelona in the summer of 2017 but is still not keen on getting back to a managerial role just yet. Since his arrival from Celta in 2014, Enrique guided Barcelona to a treble in his first season at the helm of the Catalonian club, and a domestic double in the second before.
Why Enrique Won’t Join Chelsea?
Knowing the systematic procedures of the Spaniards, Enrique is a man who prefers working with his own inner circle. Though he is the prime candidate to replace Conte at Chelsea, Enrique has stated that he will not accept the job mainly because of the unavailability of his close workers.
During Enrique’s time at Celta Vigo and Barcelona, he was accompanied by Juan Carlos Unzue and Robert Moreno as his assistants with Rafel Pol, who worked as the team’s fitness coach, and Joaquin Valdes, who was the team’s psychologist.
The four of his close companions are now back to working at Celta with Unzue as the manager of the La Liga side. And there is a very low chance that they would leave the club before the end of the season, with Unzue stepping down as a manager.
Highly unlikely that Luis Enrique would be taking the Chelsea job as he seems to be a man of his word, but Chelsea may not require a new manager before the end of the season if Antonio Conte is able to bring a sense of steadiness back at the Bridge.
