Capello Queueing Up For Mourinho’s Chelsea Job

  • Posted By:

Usually we wait until there’s a job vacancy before opening a market on a club’s next manager, but with the writing on the wall for Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, online bookmaker has installed the out-of-work Fabio Capello and former Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti as the joint $5.00 favourites to replace the not so special one.

Pep Guardiola is believed to be in the Blues sights at $9.00, with his contract at Bayern Munich expiring at the end of the current season.

Former Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is also a $9.00 chance while Atletico Madrid’s Diego Simeone has also attracted the interest of the powerbrokers at Stamford Bridge and the Argentine is at $11 in the market.

“Fabio Capello has already declared his interest in the Chelsea job but the market suggests he’s locked in a two-way battle with Carlo Ancelotti, who knows exactly what Mourinho’s about to experience having been sacked by the Blues in 2011,” said’s Christian Jantzen.
