Deschamps in Chelsea claim

Former Chelsea star Didier Deschamps claims he is on the short-list to succeed Avram Grant at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea are on the lookout for a new manager after Grant was sacked last weekend just eight months into his tenure in West London.

A host of names including Frank Rijkaard, Guus Hiddink, Roberto Mancini and Sven Goran Eriksson have been linked with the role and now Deschamps says he is in the running to take over at Chelsea.

Former World Cup winner Deschamps, who spent one season at Chelsea during his playing career, has been out of work since leaving Juventus in the summer of 2007 and he says he is keen to get back into management.

"It would be hard to refuse Chelsea, unless I stop being a coach," Deschamps told Monaco-based radio station RMC. "I want to return to coaching.

"I needed to rest because I had no break between my playing career and coaching career. I feel capable of doing good things.

"The coach's market is complicated, there are not only the players.

Flattered

"Chelsea is different because the place is vacant. I am flattered to be a possibility.

"They are a very big club that I know. We will see in the next few days how it goes.

"Three or four managers are on the list, I am part of them.

"We speak about [Marcelo] Lippi as well but he does not speak English. All the famous managers who are free can interest them.

"We cannot forget that they sacked a manager not because of results but because they want to play a spectacular football, attacking, something different than in the next few years.

"[Roman] Abramovich and his directors decide, not the players."

Was it Deschamps who beat Ranieri in CL few years back to drop us from the final. Was he the manager of Monaco?

wait...

from wikipedia:

Monaco

After retiring as a player, he went into football management. He was the head coach of AS Monaco in France's Ligue 1, leading Monaco to the French League Cup title in 2002/2003 and to its first UEFA Champions League final in 2004. He resigned on 19 September 2005 after a poor start to the season, and disagreement with club's president.

Anyone see any resemblance to a certain portugese coach...

Deschamps is a good coach with good results but would he manage with Roman?

He got Juve back to Serie A and has won Ligue 1 and has reached CL final...

Seriously though, what do people think of Didier as an option? He has done decently with the jobs he has had so far, but obviously is vastly inexperienced compared to some of the other names in the frame.

True. I have my doubts. He has some pros still. He's an old Chelsea player although played for one season. Has a good track record in high/intermediate level of coaching. Is young enough.

BTW although Didier won Ranieri and Chelsea in CL he got crushed by Jose and Porto in the final. We do have history with Deschamps. What if Jose had lost the final...

then deschamps would have become manager and not jose, according to rumours at the time, roman wanted the winner of that seasons CL final to manage chelsea

i think deschamps would be a good choice, he has a good record as manager and an even better one as a player

im not sure about deschamps. hes been out of work for a year, which immediatley makes me wonder why hes not gotten a job in that time. theirs been plenty of high profle jobs out their. im also unsure about sparky. id love him to come back to the club eventually, but i dont think he should come in with the club in turmoil at the moment. im not sure he could steady everything, though i would love to proven wrong.

Sparky would be an intriguing option and certainly one to appease the fans but i doubt he has a real shot with Roman and Co. He's done very well at Blackburn but managing Chelsea at this point in time is almost an impossible job with no room for mistakes whereas in his current position as long as he keeps them away from relegation he's doing fine and anything more than that is a big success.

Plus, i don't particularly remember his teams, be that Wales or Blackburn, play an entertaining football which Roman craves so much. It looks much more likely that Rijkaard will get the job and gets re-united with his old pal Ten Cate.
