Chelsea are aiming to successfully defend their Premier League title this season and are ready to face the obstacles that come their way. However, they have not made a good start to their title defence and are currently a bit subdued after a demoralising loss to their arch-rivals Manchester City in their last match before the international break.
The man in charge at Stamford Bridge, Antonio Conte, is aware of the kind of criticism he might be facing from the club management as well as the fans if he is not able to help his side repeat the same performance from the last term.
He is very much conscious about every tactical change he is making in the current season and is hoping that they bring him the unprecedented success that he acquired in his very first season in the Premier League.
However, speculations are rife that by the look of things, this season might not belong to the Blues, which might be detrimental to the career of their coach Antonio Conte and he might leave Stamford Bridge before the worst fear strikes. In that case, who might it be to take up the responsibility to manage the side in the future?
Though it might be a bit weird, there is a chance that the reigning Premier League champions might bring back their former gaffer Carlo Ancelotti, who was recently sacked by Bayern Munich on the back of their dismal show this season so far, to replace Conte, if he makes an unlikely exit this season.
Ancelotti had a superb couple of seasons during his last tenure at Stamford Bridge as manager, winning both the Premier League and the Champions League.
The Italian manager was, however, sacked after the 2011/12 season, to the surprise of a number of Chelsea fans. However, the Blues might look to make amends for their decision, which was rather unscrupulous, to say the least, and bring Ancelotti back as their new manager to replace his compatriot Conte.
However, the 58-year-old has made it clear that he will not be coaching any team from for the next 10 months. Chelsea will be hoping that they might be the first team to approach him as soon as he is back from his prolonged “vacation”.
With the third highest win percentage after Sir Alex Ferguson and Jose Mourinho in the Premier League, Ancelotti might be the perfect man to become the manager for Chelsea in case they lose their current gaffer Antonio Conte this season.
