Louis van Gaal’s blue army!
LVG, with his blockbuster press conferences, inexplicable outbursts and underwhelming attacking football, is the shock name in the frame to replace Antonio Conte should the Italian leave Chelsea.
Roman Abramovich is expected to once again part with a manger within a year of the club winning the league following a break down in relationship with the former Juventus gaffer.
The Mirror are reporting Van Gaal is being considered as a potential replacement.
The former Man United manager is desperate to return to England following his bitter exit from Old Trafford.
He insisted: “I’d be interested in a Premier League club where I’d have the chance to get one over on Manchester United.”
Should Barcelona knock Chelsea out of the Champions League, Conte could face the chop and Van Gaal could come in as a safe pair of hands until the end of the season — just as Hiddink did.the Guus Hiddink role, if you will.
Van Gaal won the FA Cup during his tenure as United boss but was largely criticised for his side’s unenterprising attacking play.
United also lost 4-0 to MK Dons in the League Cup, one of the club’s most humiliating defeats of the modern era.
Is LVG the man to rejuvenate Chelsea? Almost definitely not but it’ll be a laugh, won’t it?
