Chelsea make approach for La Liga boss

Published Add your comment

Chelsea have made an approach for Malaga boss Manuel Pellegrini, according to the Chilian's agent, report

The 57-year-old the newest man to be linked with the job since Carlo Ancelotti was sacked after The Blues' defeat to Everton last weekend.

And his agent says Chelsea have made a tentative enquiry.

"It is normal for clubs without a coach, such as Chelsea through intermediaries, to start asking Pellegrini, but he is very comfortable at Malaga and has a contract there.


"He has put a lot of effort into Malaga and is pleased and excited to work with the team."

With Guus Hiddink and Marco Van Basten the favourites with the bookies, the revelations about Pellegrini come as a surprise, not least because of Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich's apparent admiration of the Dutch pair.

Hiddink guided the club to the FA Cup in 2009 before the appointment of Ancelotti, and Chelsea may look against at the current Turkey boss.
