Chelsea facing battle to keep Mourinho

Chelsea could be set for a fight to keep Jose Mourinho at Stamford Bridge, with reports from The Express claiming that Bayern Munich see him as a potential replacement for Pep Guardiola.

The Spaniard has been in charge of the Bavarians since 2013, and has already claimed the top prize in German football, the Bundesliga, building on his reputation as one of the best managers on the planet, which he built at Barcelona.

However, his future at the Allianz Arena is already in doubt, with the former midfield star not committing to staying beyond his contract, which expires in 2016.

And should Guardiola leave Bayern, German legend Lothar Matthaus believes that Carlo Ancelotti and Mourinho are the only names suitable to take over:

“Just like Jupp Heynckes and Louis van Gaal before him, Pep Guardiola is an alpha male as well.” He said.

“They are all coaches who had been successful abroad. There is no coach like them available in the Bundesliga.

“There are only two coaches abroad who fit Bayern’s profile: Jose Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti. These two should be right at the top of Bayern’s shortlist if they are available in the summer of 2016.

“Joachim Low could also be a good candidate if he leaves the Germany job after Euro 2016.”

Guardiola himself has been linked with a move to England, with Manchester City and Arsenal names to have been put in the mix.
