There are many great coaches in world football, and it's no secret that Chelsea FC and Roman Abramovich have burned through quite a few of them.
With that said, however, Chelsea are in the process of appointing a new full-time boss and will be looking for a manager who can take them back to the top of the Premier League and reinvigorate their aging squad.
While many fans will be clamoring for the appointment of Roberto Di Matteo after leading Chelsea to their maiden Champions League triumph, looking closely at how they got there and their league form suggests that while he was the right man to galvanize the team when they were all but lost, he is not the right man to fill the Stamford Bridge hot-seat permanently.
Assuming chief executive Ron Gourlay and Roman Abramovich look elsewhere, we can only guess as to who winds up in charge.
In the meantime, however, I'd like to suggest the five best managers suited to reign at Chelsea. Not necessarily for now, but generally speaking.
I know some of those who are listed are not available, have come and gone or would simply never take up the post, but these are the men that in my opinion are best suited to the role and would make the best manager for Chelsea for differing reasons.
I'm not suggesting they are the five most likely to be appointed. In fact, these are perhaps the least likely managers to ever sit in the Chelsea manager's office. They're merely managers with the tools needed to best succeed (possibly for the second time) at the West London club.
That is, assuming Roman could leave them to pick the team, the tactics and the players for themselves.
