When Hull City manager Leonid Slutsky was hanging around at Stamford Bridge last year, there were a lot of grim jokes from Blues fans about the Russian being named Chelsea manager.
Of course, it looked like a joke at that point because Italian tactician Antonio Conte was steamrollering the English Premier League and was at the peak of his reign at Stamford Bridge. The talk of the former Juventus head coach being replaced, at least in the meantime, was not a major worry.
But the way Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich put Hull manager Leonid Slutsky up at one of the hotels at Stamford Bridge and let him visit Chelsea’s Cobham training ground was threatening, and now as per British publication the Daily Telegraph, the Ex CSKA Moscow star is being considered to possibly replace departed technical director Michael Emenalo.
The only circumstance holding the Russian tactician back from being truly in the frame is that he got a job in England later on, at English Championship side Hull City.
The Russian tactician is under severe pressure at the club, however, and a number of bad results and he might worryingly be available once again.
Chelsea director Granovskaia is currently occupying the role for the meantime.
