Deschamps admits to Chelsea interest

Published Add your comment

Didier Deschamps claims he is on the shortlist to become the new Chelsea manager following the sacking of Avram Grant.

The 39-year-old played for the Blues in the 1999/2000 season and as a manager led Monaco to the 2004 Champions League final before guiding Juventus back to Serie A after they had been relegated following the match-fixing scandal.

However, he resigned in May 2007 and has now told Monaco-based radio station RMC: "Three or four managers are on the list and I am one of them. It would be hard to refuse Chelsea. I want to return to coaching."
