Julian Nagelsmann, the former Bayern Munich manager, reportedly had concerns about Chelsea’s managerial search and withdrew from the race to become their next permanent manager. According to MailOnline, Nagelsmann initially believed that the interview process was a mere formality and that he would be offered the role. However, after a series of meetings with Chelsea’s recruitment team, it became clear that the club was considering several candidates, leading to Nagelsmann’s unease and eventual withdrawal. Chelsea is now expected to appoint Mauricio Pochettino, the former Tottenham manager, as their next manager. Despite initial reservations due to his link with Tottenham, Chelsea’s players have reportedly reacted positively to Pochettino’s potential arrival. Burnley boss Vincent Kompany is also on Chelsea’s shortlist, but he has distanced himself from a potential move to Stamford Bridge.
