After the two heavy and surprising defeats against Bournemouth and Watford, Antonio Conte’s job hung on a thread and many expected him to be sacked.
Former Barcelona manager Luis Enrique was strongly linked with the Chelsea job, and Barcelona playmaker Andreas Iniesta thinks the former Barca boss will do well at Chelsea.
Iniesta said: “Luis Enrique is an excellent coach.
“In Barcelona, he showed the incredible level he has reached and I think he could win trophies at any club – and that includes Chelsea.
“It won’t be easy because Chelsea is one of the biggest clubs in the world. But when you see what Enrique developed in Barcelona, then I think it is also possible in London. The Premier League is a tough competition but, for me, he is capable of managing any big English club.”
