Chelsea Looking At Former PL Manager To Replace Antonio Conte: Right Man For The Job?

Reports in the media are confirming that Marco Silva is being looked at as a viable option in the Chelsea camp to replace Antonio Conte at the hot seat. Conte’s job is at risk after the Italian lost two games in a row against Bournemouth and Watford.

After a disastrous 2015-16 season that saw Chelsea finish 10th in the league table, a certain Italian manager was brought into the frame. Antonio Conte’s arrival to Chelsea last season was a comparatively low-key affair in England. It was not because the Italian tactician is not popular in the world of football but the story of Conte was eclipsed by the drama unfolding at Manchester. The Manchester war had intensified ten folds after the two clubs appointed long-term rivals Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho as their managers.

Fans worldwide were running out of patience as they eagerly awaited a managerial world war in England with the likes of Pep, Jose, Conte, Klopp, Wenger and Pochettino going head to head. The Manchester clubs were heavily tipped to win the league because of their managers and the arrival of superstar players in the summer.

However, as he had done on four previous occasions, Antonio Conte quietly set to work and took the Chelsea team that had finished tenth the season before to the title. A season later, Chelsea are struggling to repeat their heroics and there has been immediate talk of dissatisfaction and loss of harmony at the club with Conte tipped to get the sack.

Reasons ranging from players turning against the manager and his training methods, Conte missing his home, Chelsea board unhappy with Conte’s over-exerting nature have gone through the rumour mill.

Conte’s struggle means that several managers have been linked to the hot seat at SW6. With rumours linking him to a move away from London getting stronger, Marco Silva is being sought out as a temporary replacement. Silva was sacked by Watford earlier this season. Watford’s decision to sack Marco Silva came as little surprise given his commitment issues at the club, which resulted in their poor form. Reports had come out about Silva’s head being turned ever since rumours spread linking him with the managerial job at Everton surfaced.

Should Silva come to England, he will have a mammoth task on his hand of handling players of much higher stature but the manager will want to use this opportunity to give his career a huge boost.
