Graham Potter was sacked last night by Chelsea FC. As the race for his succession is launched, the English manager could quickly bounce back.

A final defeat at home against Aston Villa will therefore have sealed the fate of Graham Potter on the Chelsea bench. The England manager was sacked last night as the Blues sit in eleventh place in the Premier League, a long way from a possible European qualification.

Who to replace Potter on the Chelsea bench ? Until the end of the season, the question seems settled since a long-time assistant at the Blues, Bruno Saltor, has been appointed interim coach to ensure the home stretch.

But next summer should be a time of change. Last night, the name of Julian Nagelsmann emerged as a big favorite. Fabrizio Romano has ensured in recent hours that another name is seriously becoming clearer for the position: Ruben Amorim, Sporting Lisbon technician who is popular.

Chelsea FC have sacked Graham Potter due to their disappointing position in the Premier League. Deputy Bruno Saltor is appointed interim coach. Ruben Amorim and Julian Nagelsmann are potential candidates for the permanent position. Meanwhile, Potter is linked with a possible move to Leicester to replace sacked Brendan Rodgers.
