EPL fans "Guardiola is overrated". Rafa Benitez won the CL with Liverpool failed in Italy TWICE
If I had to choose the next manager... Pep Guardiola, Roberto Martinez, Ernesto Valverde, or Rafa Benitez..
Samuel Eto'o : Mourinho is a fool. Eden Hazard : Chelsea is not a Football Team. John Terry : Chelsea don't have football plan. Francesc Fabregas : Jose Mourinho should Shut Up. Yaya Toure : Mourinho talks too much, he should Shut Up. Arsene Wenger : Mourinho has fear of failure. Morten Olsen : Mourinho is enemy and danger of football. Rafa Benitez : Jose Mourinho talks too much. Pep Guardiola : Mourinho always moan, always make excuses and always complain. its them not me dnt curse me -_-
Just before we go to the New Wembley which team among these do you consider the best in the last decade; 1-Pep Guardiola's Barcelona 2009 team 2-Arsenals invincibles of 2004-05 3-Manchester United 2008 team 4-Rafa Benitez's 2005 Liverpool team 5-Jose Mourinho's 2005 chelsea team 6-Jupp Heynckes' 2013 Bayern team 7- Real Madrid galacticos of 2002 8- Ancellotis 2007 Milan team. NB-Dont choose because you support that team, be objective
Samuel Eto'o: Mourhino is a Fool... Eden Hazard: Chelsea is not a Football Team... John Terry: Chelsea don't have a Football Plan... Cesc Fabregas: Jose Mourhino should Shut Up... Yaya Toure: Mourhino should learn how to Keep Quiet... Arsene Wenger: Mourhino has Fear of Failure... Morten Olsen: Mourhino is Enemy and Danger of Football... Rafa Benitez: Mourhino Talks too Much... Pep Guardiola: Mourhino always Moan,Always make Excuses and Always Complain... One Word for Jose Mourhino?
A special letter to the Special One "...Imagine how shocked Arsene Wenger, Rafa Benitez, Andre Villas-Boas, Manuel Pelligrini and Pep Guardiola would be to learn that you actually possess the ability to keep your mouth shut..."
At this rate, Pep Guardiola could end up being Rafa Benitez to Jupp Heynckes' Jose Mourinho.
WHO'S NEXT AT CHELSEA'S HOT MANAGERIAL SEAT AFTER RAFA? The "Interim One, Not wanted. Never wanted. Rafa out," were the ugly chants that heralded Stanford Bridge in chelsea's 1-0 win over WestBrom. Banners were dotted around the Bridge to the disgust of Rafa Benitez, who last week critized intoto the Chelseas' board for the nomencleture given to his managerial position, "Interim Manager." He branded it as a, "costly mistake." Though, that didnt faze the unruffled Billonaire Chelsea owner, Roman Abrahimowich. Now, Chelsea fans clearly want Murinho-"The Special One" back at the Bridge. Should Murinho extend his contract at the Spanish capital; and/ or head to France (PSG) as rumored; It's obvious and certain Chelsea is running out of options. Their only hope was Pep Guardiola. Now, he's signed a 4year contract with German giants, Bayern Munich. Benitez, on Tuesday, angrily, but publicly declared the end his Interim position come this MAY after Tuesday's rant by his own fans. Chelsea fans and their owner ali ...
Things you're unlikely to hear from famous managers : "You'll never win with the kids" - Arsene Wenger "You don't buy superstars, we make them" - Roberto Mancini "Managers should retire at the age of 65" - Sir Alex Ferguson "I want to thank Roman Abramovich and senior Chelsea players who game me an opportunity and time to prove myself at Chelsea" - AVB "I'm going to spend big money on star players this summer" - David Moyes "I admire Barcelona as a club because they're the biggest club in Spain" - Jose Mourinho "Tiki-taka is boring. I love it when my team plays fast counter attacking football" - Pep Guardiola "Chelsea have the most passionate fans in world of football" - Rafa Benitez "Manchester United is the most successful and the most decorated football club in England" - Kenny Dalglish "Players should avoid making rough tackles and teams should play clean free flowing attacking football" - Tony Pulis "I don't like to spend money" - Harry Radknapp "Swansea is better than Liverpool" - Brendon Rodgers "B ...
Roman Abramovich is in search of the 11th manager for Chelsea since he took over at the club in 2003. Rafa Benitez, Chelsea’s interim manager for this season, is unlikely to get an extension. It was no secret that Abramovich wanted Pep Guardiola to take over at Stamford Bridge next season, but the Former Barcelona manager’s decision to join German giants Bayern Munich has left them in an inconvenient position. So the biggest question now remains – who will take up the hot seat at Stamford Bridge next season. While some romantics are vouching for a return of Jose Mourinho, more realistic options like Manuel Pellegrini and Antonio Conte have been linked with the job. Juventus manager Conte is believed to be a prime contender in Chelsea’s shortlist for managers next season. In fact Gianluca Vialli, a former player and manager of Chelsea, believes that Conte is ‘probably at the top of Chelsea’s wanted list‘. Source: The hard tackle

FOOTBALL- Benitez SLAMS Mourinho: 'I am not under pressure' Chelsea interim manager Rafa Benitez says he is ignoring what Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho has to say about a potential return to the Premier League, and is simply focused on doing the best possible job until the end of the season. The Former Liverpool manager's current contract runs only until the end of this season, and after Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich missed out on Bayern-bound Pep Guardiola, "the Special One" could make a shock comeback to the club with whom he won Premier League titles in 2004-05 and 2005-06. "Not me. Why [the pressure] on me? I finish my contract in June," he told reporters. "I am concentrating on my job, and I finish my contract at the end of the season. I will try and do my best. That's my job.
There are so many negative Liverpool fans. Fans are already talking about getting BR sacked and bringing in a manager. I've seen a few people saying that they want Rafa Benitez back. We're supposed to be moving forward not backwards. We can all sit here and argue if Man united are good or not but we have to admit that they have a good manager in Alex Ferguson. If Fergy wasn't given a chance at Man united, were would they be? They'd probably be a mid table team. All i'm saying is that fans who think that BR should move on at the end of this season and think that we're going to get a manager like Jose Mourinho, Carlo Ancelotti or Pep Guardiola are delusional. We're rebuilding our squad and yeah, that might take a while like BR said but if your a true red, it shouldn't matter how long it's going to take until we're a winning side again. In Brendon Rodgers we trust. YNWA. (Mo)
Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp is looking forward to competing with new Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola, and is aiming to take Jose Mourinho's place as the Former Barcelona trainer's nemesis. Arsene Wenger insisted Arsenal can still have a successful season even if they do not sign any new players in January as he admitted the club have failed in their attempt to land Barcelona forward David Villa.(london evening standard) Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has told Rafa Benitez to forget about winning silverware this season and concentrate on finishing in the top four, according to the Daily Mail. Manchester City have set their sights on Barcelona's David Villa to replace the departed Balotelli. Daniel Sturridge can become the first Liverpool player to score in his first three Barclays Premier League matches. Roberto Mancini warned Mario Balotelli he could end up like washed-up former Brazil striker Adriano if he did not change his ways. [Krissh]
Roman Abramovich’s worst fears came true when Pep Guardiola snubbed Chelsea’s millions to join Bayern Munich. The Spaniard agreed a three-year deal to take charge of the German giants, dealing Abramovich a bitter blow ahead of the 2-2 Premier League draw with Southampton, when Chelsea fans again aimed abusive chants at interim boss Rafa Benitez. Abramovich had courted Guardiola for two years, although officials feared the Former Barcelona boss might look elsewhere after talks grew tense. Bayern bound: Pep Guardiola is joining the Bundesliga giants, as John Edwards told you he might (below) Sportsmail exclusively revealed on December 8 that Chelsea had begun drawing up a list of second-choice managerial candidates — including Borussia Dortmund’s Jurgen Klopp — after Guardiola’s advisers expressed serious doubts about their man working under Abramovich.

Gianfranco Zola has emerged as a serious contender to become Chelsea’s next full-time boss. Although the Blues hierarchy has feared that Pep Guardiola was slipping from their grasp, the confirmation that the Catalan has opted to join Bayern Munich was still a blow to Roman Abramovich. Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, Borussia Dortmund’s Jurgen Klopp, Michael Laudrup of Swansea and Diego Simeone, whose Atletico Madrid side humiliated the West Londoners in August’s UEFA SuperCup, have all been linked with the post, the Telegraph reports. According to the Mirror, Frank Rijkaard is also available, after being sacked this week by Saudi Arabia. But with Blues fans starting to show their displeasure at interim manager Rafa Benitez, Zola will be a live option to take over in the summer when the board sits down next month to start planning the club’s future. The Watford boss has never hidden the strength of his love for Chelsea, where an astonishing six-year spell as a player saw him voted as the club’ ...
Chelsea will reportedly *** the credentials of Jurgen Klopp, Diego Simeone and Michael Laudrup following Pep Guardiola's decision to join Bayern Munich, while Jose Mourinho remains the favourite for the Stamford Bridge job. Bayern Munich announced the capture of Guardiola on Wednesday afternoon, much to the disappointment of Chelsea, and the Former Barcelona boss will succeed incumbent Jupp Heynckes on July 1. According to The Guardian, Chelsea had initially approached Guardiola last summer prior to the full-time appointment of Roberto Di Matteo, but the Catalan was intent on spending time with his family on sabbatical in New York. Chelsea were reported to be planning another move for Guardiola at the end of season with Rafa Benitez only in interim charge, but Roman Abramovich must now look elsewhere for his next appointment. The Guardian claim that Abramovich, who has patched up his differences with Mourinho since the Portuguese's departure in 2007, is likely to approach the Real Madrid boss, who is f .. ...

So who do you think should be the boss at Stamford Bridge? Is interim boss Rafa Benitez the man for the long term? How about Jose Mourinho? Jurgen Klopp? Guus Hiddink? Michael Laudrup? Tell us who and why?
Pep Guardiola gone to Bayern Munich and Chelsea are stuck with Rafa Benitez who apparently has signed a pre-contact agreement with Real Madrid. Chelsea could end up with Gary Megson.

This will be Rafa Benitez's third Club World Cup campaign, having lost to Sao Paulo with Liverpool in 2005 and triumphed with Inter over Mazembe in 2010. If Chelsea win the trophy, he will draw level with fellow Spaniard Pep Guardiola, who has two winners’ medals earned with Barcelona in 2009 and 2011.
Roberto Mancini will be given the time he deserves to hunt down Manchester United at the top of the Premier League. More than ever before, managers at big clubs find themselves under intense pressure after a couple of poor results but Mancini will have been helped by the disgraceful way Roberto Di Matteo was treated by Chelsea. Roman Abramovich was rightly ridiculed for sacking the man who brought the Champions League trophy to Stamford Bridge for the first time. The appointment of Rafa Benitez has caused a stink and even if City’s board have thought about pressing the panic button, the outcry caused by Di Matteo’s dismissal will have made them think again. Mancini, of course, must still win something this season. The names of Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola keep cropping up. But the key is that Mancini will be given the chance to turn the situation around. City are still in the title race. Nothing has been decided. If United were winning all their games 1-0, 2-0 and 3-0, I would question how they cou ...
Chelsea have been warned off nagging Pep Guardiola about taking charge at Stamford Bridge. The Sun says Blues owner Roman Abramovich is desperate to confirm Guardiola as his new long-term manager after sacking Roberto Di Matteo and appointing Rafa Benitez as interim boss. But the former Nou Camp idol is growing increasingly irritated by persistent approaches from Chelsea. His advisors made it clear to Abramovich that Guardiola does not appreciate the mounting pressure they are putting on him to reveal his next club. Abramovich wants an indication from Guardiola that he would be willing to come to London when his sabbatical is up — well aware that Paris St Germain and both Manchester clubs are also interested. But the man who won 14 titles in four years at Barcelona is refusing to be rushed into a decision. -jla
Chelsea: Roman Abramovich running out of managers - Wilkins Comments (363) Ex-Chelsea assistant boss Ray Wilkins believes club owner Roman Abramovich is running out of managerial options. The Blues have had nine managers since Russian Abramovich took over in 2003. Interim manager Rafa Benitez has failed to win any of his first three games, while ex-Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola has been linked with the role. Abramovich's Chelsea managers Claudio Ranieri: May 2000 (appointed before Abramovich took over) - May 2004 Jose Mourinho: June 2004 - September 2007 Avram Grant: September 2007 - May 2008 Luiz Felipe Scolari: July 2008 - February 2009 Guus Hiddink: February 2009 - May 2009 Carlo Ancelotti: June 2009 - May 2011 Andre Villas-Boas: June 2011 - March 2012 Roberto Di Matteo: March 2012 - November 2012 Rafa Benitez: November 2012 - Wilkins, who worked under Abramovich for two years, said: "He is running out of options. If Guardiola was to come in and got sacked, where do you go?" The 56-year-old former Chel ...

Guardiola believes Chelsea's owner is too 'trigger-happy' to be his boss Rate this item1 2 3 4 5 (0 votes) Pep Guardiola believes Roman Abramovich is too 'trigger-happy' as Chelsea's owner to offer him the security he wants when he returns to management next year, according to sources close to the Former Barcelona coach. Guardiola, 41, is the most coveted manager in football and Abramovich has made no secret that he wants the Spaniard at Stamford Bridge when his year away from the game ends next summer. Last week, Chelsea's owner sacked Roberto Di Matteo, who had led the club to their Champions League triumph, and appointed Former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez as manager until the end of the season. But with major clubs queuing up to speak to Guardiola and offer him a return to the game, Di Matteo's sacking has made it less, not more, likely that he will listen to Abramovich's overtures. 'When he does return, Pep will want stability and the events of the past few days shows again that Chelsea are not a club ...
If ever there were a good time for Manchester City to suffer the humiliation of a second successive Champions League exit it might just have been this week. Chelsea have stolen the thunder that was headed their way. The heat is not exactly off Roberto Mancini but he is probably glad not to be Roberto Di Matteo, or, to extend beyond that, coach of Chelsea. Wednesday's draw crystallised his own position: fail to defend the Premier League title and he will be out on his ear. Even then, he might still be removed if Manchester City win the Pep Guardiola beauty contest. That eventuality might just suit Rafa Benitez, of course, though he starts a new job with his future already bound up in the whims of another man, one he was happy to compliment during a Thursday tea-time unveiling. Pep talk will envelop both clubs until the Catalan has decided his direction, a decision day believed to be months away. With Champions League dreams all but extinguished for both of the country's richest clubs, the comparative munda ...
Pep Guardiola is on Brazil's list of targets as they look for a new manager after sacking Mano Menezes. Chelsea are working on a deal which would see the Former Barcelona boss take the reins at Stamford Bridge in the summer. But the Brazilian Football Confederation are hoping to make Guardiola the man who leads them to World Cup glory in 2014, a tournament they are hosting. Target: Pep Guardiola is a target for the Brazilian Football Confederation Gone: Mano Menezes has been axed as Brazil boss The confederation's national squads director, Andres Sanchez, said a new coach would be installed in January. Guardiola was Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich's first choice to replace Roberto Di Matteo, who was sacked on Tuesday night. But he is enjoying time off after resigning from his Barcelona role in the summer, happily living in his swanky New York apartment. Rafa Benitez was appointed as interim manager until next summer, when Guardiola's 'sabbatical' is set to end - although he has indicated he may return to m ...

The names are: Pep Guardiola, Rafa Benitez and Harry Redknap.
is delighted that Wankchester City are out of the Champions League. Not that they were going to win it anyway. Secondly, I have seen that Chelsea approached Pep Guardiola earlier this week about the managers job, even though RDM was still in the job at the time. Not only that, they sacked him at 4am this morning once they had flown back from Italy & replaced him about 12 hours later with Rafa Benitez? What a disgraceful way to treat someone. After what he has done for them? Unbelievable.
LONDON -- Six months after guiding Chelsea to an unlikely Champions League title, Roberto Di Matteo was fired Wednesday with the team on the brink of becoming the first defending champion eliminated from the group stage. Di Matteo, who was hired on a permanent basis in June, was dismissed a day after a 3-0 loss to Juventus in Turin left Chelsea's title defense in tatters. Chelsea also is struggling in the Premier League,having picked up just two points from its last four games to fall to third place. "The team's recent performances and results have not been good enough and the owner and the board felt that a change was necessary now to keep the club moving in the right direction as we head into a vitally important part of the season," Chelsea said in a statement. There was no immediate announcement on a replacement for Di Matteo, but Former Liverpool and Inter Milan coach Rafa Benitez has been heavily linked with the job. Pep Guardiola, currently on a break from coaching after leavingBarcelona at the end ...
Five managers that can fill the Chelsea hot seat Pep Guardiola: Pep, the Former Barcelona manager is the obvious favourite here. UK media has been linking him with a move for some time now and Chelsea owner will try his best to lure him at West London. Guardiola must have seen what Chelsea have done to a young manager (Andre Villas-Boas) few months back which might prompt him to take a seat back and avoid the temptations dangled at him. Certainly he is a type of manager who loves to work from the ground level. Rafa Benitez: The Former Liverpool man is out of work since 2010. He would be a perfect candidate right now. But, then again, he hasn’t worked in an environment before where instant results are wanted. Still, he is looking for a high profile job and could be ready to accept the offer. Jose Mourinho: Just a possibility. He has time and again stated that he wants to return to English Premier League and this could open the door ajar for the Portuguese. He has worked for Chelsea before; he knows the w ...

Harry Redknapp, Pep Guardiola, Rafa Benitez & Fabio Capello All On Shortlist For Russia Job The Russian Football Union (RFU) has a compiled a not-so-short list of managers it would like to speak to about the vacant Russia national team job. Among the 13 names released today are ex-Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp, who was sacked last month; former Inter Milan and Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez; Fabio Capello, formerly of England; and Barcelona’s most successful ever manager Pep Guardiola.

Why Liverpool have better chance than Chelsea of convincing Guardiola about England move Those who observe him closely are adamant: Pep Guardiola will step away from the game once his time is up at Barcelona. But if the departing coach is tempted by a move to the Premier League, it is Liverpool, not Chelsea, which will have the greater chance of convincing him to cut short any sabbatical. Roman Abramovich will throw the bank at Guardiola to persuade him to move to London after Friday's Copa del Rey final. Huge wages, a massive transfer budget and inheriting the new European champions - it has to be an attractive proposition. But it is struggling Liverpool which is the better fit for the Spaniard. At Anfield, Guardiola will instantly recognise the youth structure put in place by Former Barcelona coaches Rodolfo Borrell and Jose Segura. Both men were tempted to Merseyside by Rafa Benitez to overhaul Liverpool's development system and the club is now reaping the rewards with the likes of Martin Kelly, Jack R ...

My morning began with the dreaded news of King Kenny getting sacked as Liverpool manager. Sad! Yes the results have not been satisfactory in the league but the team played far better than last few seasons. A manager needs more time than one season. 3 managers in 3 seasons makes us sound like Chelsea! Anyway now that it's done, we are back at square one. Again next season will be 'settling down' for a new manager and yet again results might lead to his sacking by the end of the season. Hope there will be an end to this vicious cycle. Among contenders there's speculation on too many: 1. Rafa Benitez - fans loved him and will welcome him 2. Roberto Martinez - Wigan and Liverpool are not same. I fear another story like Roy Hodgson. 3. Jose Mourinho - might be the Special One, but I hate him and wouldn't wish him as our coach. Smells too much blue to me! Plus he only takes up jobs with the ones having chance to win leagues .. We ain't close to that! 4. Pep Guardiola - you must be nuts! 5. AVB - failure at Chel ...
