Chelsea have built a reputation for their harsh treatment of many managers because they just can't get the results year after year. Well, this summer that needs to change otherwise the club could find itself trophy-less for seasons to come.
The Blues have had successful managers over the last 10 years, but the problem is that the managers they employ can't get results every season.
Even with Jose Mourinho - the only manager who stayed long enough to win back-to-back Premier League titles with Chelsea - and Di Matteo - the only one to bring the elusive Champions League crown to Stamford Bridge - it was still not enough, to avoid the wrath of the almighty Russian billionaire, Roman Abramovich.
Chelsea need a manager capable of keeping the squad under control, and identify its strengths and weaknesses. They need a manager who can get results every single week, but more importantly every single season.
The only way Chelsea are going to be able to do this is by finding a manager who is world class, and has experience of taking a faulty team, and turning it around. They also need to move quickly after Rafa Benitez's poor interim-ship, and Pep Guardiola signing for German powerhouse Bayern Munich.
The European champions need to find the next 'special one' to take the club back to the top of the Premier League, and to challenge once again for the Champions League trophy.
Chelsea need to look hard and do a lot of research to find the perfect match, and not hire another up and coming manager. They need a manager who has the power to change the squad around straight away after defeat, they need a champion winning manager, they need a manager who is willing to give his all as the man running the European champions.
I think if Chelsea do not find someone with these attributes then they will once again have seasons of faults and will fall behind the Manchester duo in the race to claim their fifth English top division crown.
