Knows The League
Finding a manager with proven Premier League experience would be hard to come by for Chelsea.
Sure, there are a number of top managers that could be available for the Blues, but they need someone that can make an immediate impact – and most simply won’t be able to guarantee that.
Carlo Ancelotti would represent a relatively low-risk option in that regard, given that he already knows the club and the league.
There won’t be a period of adjustment as he looks to adjust to the rigorous nature of the Premier League, and he’ll be able to improve the side significantly immediately.
