Ornstein Reveals Manager (With 68% Win Ratio) WON’T Be Appointed By Chelsea Despite ‘Talks’ Being Held

Sporting Lisbon manager Ruben Amorim won’t succeed Frank Lampard as Chelsea boss, according to The Athletic‘s David Ornstein.

The trusted journalist claims that “talks did take place” with the 38-year-old and, despite being held in “high regard”, he has opted to remain with Sporting.

Amorim has an impressive 68% win ratio as a manager, a percentage that is much higher than any other candidate being considered, but the club’s search for a new head coach will now move on to other options.

Ornstein has also revealed that the shortlist has been narrowed down from “five to 10” to a “handful”, with no frontrunner having emerged at this stage.

From other reports, it is believed that the likes of Julian Nagelsmann, former Spain boss Luis Enrique and ex-Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino are the favourites to land the position. Further interviews and talks are expected to be held over the next few weeks before a final decision is made.
