Once the season ends Guus Hiddink will leave his post as Chelsea interim manager. The Dutch manager who replaced Jose Mourinho at Stamford Bridge is only there to hold things together until the club and appoint their prefered option.
There have been many names mentioned for the Chelsea manager job. The hot free bets favorites for the role are Diego Simeone and Pep Guardiola. Other names that punters are looking for the best free bet offers on are; John Terry, Mauricio Pochettino, Brendan Rodgers, Laurent Blanc, Juande Ramos, Gus Poyet, Didier Deschamps, Joachim Loew, Fabio Capello, Ronald Koeman, Antonio Conte and Frank de Boer.
The potential list of suitors includes all the top managers around the world. There are also four managers that are managing in the Premier League that has attracted punters to put free bets on them been appointed. These are Mark Hughes, who now manages Stoke and was an ex-Chelsea player, Claudio Ranieri whose team, Leicester are sitting top of the league and has managed at Stamford Bridge before. The surprise name that punters search for free bet offers for is Eddie Howe. He is currently the manager of Bournemouth who have done very well in the Premier League so far with their limited resources.
It is believed that Roman Abramovich’s number one target is Pep Guardiola. There are strong rumors though that he has agreed to take over the role as manager at Manchester City in the summer.
Diego Simeone is a manager that Abramovich would like to tempt to join Chelsea. The Atletico Madrid boss seems to be very settled, and it would take a lot of persuasions to lure him to Stamford Bridge.
One of the main deciding factors in who Chelsea manage to attract to take the manager’s role is if they can qualify for the Champions League this season. Without this, they are going to find it difficult to tempt the biggest names in the sport to join them. At the moment, it looks like a long shot them being able to make it. They will need to go on a run of going unbeaten for almost the whole of the rest of the season. They are a team packed with superstars so if they get their act together they can make it.
Two names that have attracted big money bets in recent weeks is Jorge Sampaoli. He has recently left the role of manager of Chile and is regarded as one of the best managers around.
Whoever Chelsea appoint as their new manager, their first job will be to sort out the dressing room. Any player that has been a destructive force this year will be shown the door over the summer months. Abramovich will make the money available so the new man can build a team in his image, but they will need to hit the ground running if they are to stay in the post for the length of their contract.
