The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have been tearing into David Luiz and Laurent Blanc, as the Brazilian defender has backed the ex-PSG boss to take over from Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge next season according to The Telegraph. Blanc stands alongside Maurizio Sarri as the frontrunner to take over from Antonio Conte at Chelsea, but the fans all want to see Sarri and not Blanc.
Antonio Conte looks like he’s come to the end of the line in his Chelsea career and the fans and players are both awaiting the Italian’s sacking and the appointment of a new manager. One player, in particular, has been having his say, as David Luiz has gone against what the Chelsea fans want as he’s supported Blanc in getting the job as opposed to going with the consensus and calling for the current Napoli boss, Sarri.
Luiz could be angling for a Chelsea career revival though as his playing days at Stamford Bridge could be over for the second time if the wrong man comes into the club. Whilst Blanc is the one who brought Luiz to the Parc des Princes, the Brazilian defender will know that if the Frenchman makes the move to Stamford Bridge then he’ll have more of a chance of keeping his Chelsea career alive.
