Pochettino’s side suffered their 10th league defeat of the season, prompting increased scrutiny on the Argentine manager. With Chelsea slipping to 11th place, there are rumors that Bayer Leverkusen’s manager, Alonso, is being considered as his successor. Eghbali and co-owner Todd Boehly reportedly want to dismiss Pochettino soon to bring in Alonso, who has transformed Leverkusen and is aiming to dethrone Bayern Munich as German champions.
Alonso, aged 42, is in high demand, despite only being in his second managerial role. As for Xabi Alonso, it is speculated whether he will want to join Chelsea. The teen sensation is taking his talents around the UK and Europe to face big names in the Premier League.
There is no buy-out clause in Alonso’s contract. Alonso started his managerial career with Real Sociedad’s B side, Sanse, before taking charge of Leverkusen. His win percentage increased from 40.82% at Real Sociedad to 63.64% in Germany.
Following the speculation, the teen sensation is preparing to face the biggest names in the sport in the upcoming months.
