Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has run out of patience with his closest advisers and has decided to conduct the search for Chelsea’s new manager by himself.

According to the Daily Express, the Stamford Bridge billionaire is no longer going to delegate the decisions to technical director Michael Emenalo or agent Vlado Lemic and will trust his own judgement in appointing the next man to take up the Blues’ hot seat.

The report claims former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola’s decision to take over at Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich has sparked the decision to take matters into his own hands.

Another report in the Daily Star claims Abramovich also regrets the appointment of former Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez as interim manager until the end of the season.

The report says Emenalo pushed hard for Benitez and Abramovich was swayed by his argument but the appointment was met with huge resistance from the Stamford Bridge crowd and the Spaniard has since accumulated the worst record of any Chelsea manager since the Oligarch bought the club.

It also claims the whole episode has left Abramovich convinced he must makes the decision solely and will not be willing to listen to others’ suggestions.
