Former Chelsea manager expresses interest in returning to the club as uncertainties surround the potential appointment of Mauricio Pochettino.

Former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has reportedly offered his services to the club amid uncertainties surrounding Mauricio Pochettino’s future. Conte, who enjoyed success during his previous stint at Stamford Bridge, is said to be ready to step in should Pochettino depart this summer.

Raffaele Amato, a journalist from, claims that Conte is keen on returning to Chelsea. The Italian coach has been without a managerial role since his departure from Tottenham Hotspur in March 2023.

During his time at Chelsea, Conte achieved significant milestones, including winning the Premier League and the FA Cup. However, clashes with former owner Roman Abramovich led to his exit in 2018. With new owners now in place, Conte may see an opportunity to fulfill unfinished business.

Conte’s potential return comes amidst speculation linking him with the Napoli job. However, Napoli’s owner’s delay in making a decision has prompted Conte to explore the possibility of rejoining Chelsea.

Meanwhile, Pochettino’s tenure at Chelsea has been under scrutiny due to the team’s underwhelming performance, currently sitting ninth in the Premier League. With just a year left on his contract, Pochettino’s future hinges on the decisions of Chelsea’s new owners.

In addition to Conte, Thiago Motta is also rumored to be a candidate for the Chelsea managerial position. The former player, who has gained recognition for his coaching abilities at Bologna, is reportedly being considered as a potential replacement for Pochettino.

Motta’s success at Bologna, including securing their first-ever UEFA Champions League qualification, has caught the attention of top clubs like Juventus and AC Milan. While he may be on the verge of a move to Juventus, Chelsea could also be a destination if Pochettino departs.
