Xabi Alonso

Chelsea is rumored to want to sack Mauricio Pochettino from the coaching position immediately. Instead, the Blues are eyeing Bayer Leverkusen tactician Xabi Alonso.

Mauricio Pochettino’s position as Chelsea coach continues to be questioned. The 4-2 defeat against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Stamford Bridge made Pochettino even more vulnerable to being sacked.

Now, Chelsea slipped to 11th place in the standings. From 23 competitions, The Blues swallowed 10 defeats.

In fact, according to the Sports Zone report, Pochettino has the opportunity to be sacked soon. That way, the man from Argentina will become the third coach to be sacked by Chelsea in less than two years.

Instead, the Blues management is targeting Xabi Alonso. The report reported that Chelsea official Behdad Eghbali was a big fan of Alonso.

Chelsea’s move to secure Alonso as soon as possible is understandable. Because Alonso is being targeted by several other teams.

The clubs admire Alonso’s work, who has led Leverkusen to the top of the Bundesliga standings this season with no losses.

Apart from Chelsea, Liverpool is said to be another team that fell in love with Alonso. The Reds want to get back with their former player with a different status. For Liverpool, Alonso is the ideal replacement candidate for Jurgen Klopp who will leave at the end of this season.
