Mark Hughes was being viewed as possible Chelsea manager

Posted on March 3, 2016

For the past few weeks and even months, Chelsea has been in search of a manager who can take charge of the main team after the current season reaches it’s end. Guus Hiddink is the interim coach but the Dutch manager will be making his way out of Stamford Bridge in a few months’ time.

Diego Simeone, Massimiliano Allegri, Antonio Conte, Jose Mourinho are some of the high profile managers who have been linked with taking charge of Chelsea but there is someone else who isn’t so well known as those previously mentioned who was being taken into consideration and it’s Stoke City’s Mark Hughes.

Mark Hughes has enjoyed success with Stoke City as he led the team to the semi-finals of the Capital One Cup as well as changing the playing style of the Premier League club and these were a few of the main reasons of why Hughes was reportedly being taken into consideration as a possible manager of Chelsea.

Massimiliano Allegri of Juventus has impressed the managerial staff of Chelsea and the Italian manager is one of the coaches that the Premier League has consistently been attempting to lure in but the Italian manager has refused the invitation and this has forced Chelsea on having to search around for other managers and it’s rumored that Diego Simeone is the one that has accepted the challenge but Mark Hughes has been in the watch list of Chelsea for the past few weeks.

Mark Hughes has recently decided to extend his managerial stay with Stoke City until 2019 as he will continue to be manager of Stoke City for the next few years but there is a high chance that he becomes the next coach of a top club as he has already been attracting the attention of the Premier League side Chelsea, who have been struggling so much in this season and are in need of someone who can spark them back to life.
