Revealed: When Chelsea will announce new coach as Blues zero in on four candidates to replace Mauricio Pochettino

WHAT HAPPENED?

As per The Telegraph, the four names on Chelsea's shortlist are Brentford boss Thomas Frank, Leicester City's Enzo Maresca, Ipswich Town's Kieran McKenna and a mystery candidate, who is yet to be revealed. As per the report, Chelsea have investigated the situation of all four managers but do not have a single leading candidate at the moment.

THE BIGGER PICTURE

As per Sky Sports, Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital have a deadline in mind and want to make a public announcement by the end of next week. The Blues want to give their new manager as much time as possible to settle in to life at Stamford Bridge.

DID YOU KNOW?

Maresca's buy-out provision in his Leicester contract is said to be worth around £8.5 million ($10.8m), which is more than twice as much as McKenna's at Ipswich Town. With regard to Frank, the Bees boss had his £3m ($3.8m) buy-out increased to an unknown price point when he signed his most recent contract with Brentford in 2022.

WHAT NEXT FOR CHELSEA?

The Blues made the surprise parting of ways with Pochettino public just two days after the last Premier League matchday despite Chelsea's strong end to the season. They will now look to quickly make the decision on who will replace the Argentine before the start of pre-season in July.
