Glenn Hoddle wants Chelsea return but former manager expects Andre Villas-Boas’s replacement to be foreign
Glenn Hoddle wants the manager’s job at former club Chelsea – but concedes the club are likely to look abroad for Andre Villas-Boas’s replacement.
The 54-year-old spent three years at the Stamford Bridge helm during the mid-1990s, before leaving to take the England national team post.
Hoddle was the last Englishman to hold the manager’s job at Chelsea and does not expect that to change when Roman Abramovich chooses a long-term successor to Villas-Boas.
However, if the west Londoners do plump for a British option, Hoddle would love to be considered for the post.
“I think they will probably keep with the policy of staying foreign, I really do,” he said.
“I was the last English manager to be there and that was a long, long time ago – over 15 years ago. That is staggering and I think they will probably go foreign, but it is strange because I loved working for the club.”
