Former Liverpool defender Jose Enrique has urged Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich to appoint Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers as Chelsea’s next manager.
“He’s a great guy and a great man,” said Enrique, speaking exclusively to Ladbrokes.
“He would improve any top team in the world. I know this because of the years I spent working for him at Liverpool.
“What people have to realise is that he obviously nearly won the title with us in 2013-14, but that was seven years ago.
“He’s not the same manager now that he was back then; he’s even better. It’s actually quite frightening.
“For me, Brendan Rodgers is a manager who could go and do a job successfully at Chelsea or Manchester United.
“I believe he is a manager who should be trusted with a big budget at a big club and I have no doubt he would be a success.
“I’m very happy for him and it’s amazing to see what he’s doing at Leicester, but I believe when a club like Chelsea or United are looking at their next manager, he should be the first name they turn to.”
While we acknowledge Rodgers has done a good job at Leicester City, Thomas Tuchel has done an even better job as Chelsea boss.
