EPL: Jorge Mendes hands Chelsea who to appoint as next manager after Pochettino’s exit

Agent Jorge Mendes has reportedly suggested Porto’s current manager, Sergio Conceicao, as a potential replacement for Mauricio Pochettino at Chelsea.

This follows the club’s announcement on Tuesday, that they have mutually parted ways with Pochettino after just one season.

Pochettino had initially signed a two-year contract with an option for a third year.

According to The Mirror, Mendes recommended Conceicao, despite the Portuguese manager being under contract with Porto until 2028.

The report indicates that Conceicao’s contract, signed under former president Pinto da Costa, could potentially be revoked, allowing him to join Chelsea at no cost.

Conceicao, who has been with Porto since 2017, has won 10 trophies, making him the second-most successful manager in Portuguese football.

He has also been linked with managerial roles at AC Milan and Marseille.
