It has been a crazy and dramatic time at Chelsea football club in recent days, with the sacking of fan favourite Roberto Di Matteo and the appointment of the unpopular Rafa Benitez on the interim, but the media are already discussing who are next manager will be and Barcelona star Lionel Messi believes Pep Guardiola would be a success wherever he end up.

Messi did not want to be drawn into a discussion about our outgoing coach, saying:

“It’s difficult to judge the situation when you are not inside the club but Chelsea are a great club and with big clubs if you lose two game consecutively then these things can happen, the pressure starts to mount.”

He believes Guardiola, widely tipped to be the next permanent manager at the west London club, will be a success wherever he ends up:

“Guardiola will be a success wherever he goes. He is widely recognised as one of the best coaches in the world.

“For me he is the best coach in the world and wherever he goes he will be a success I have no doubt about that. He’ll go where he wants to go and good luck to him.”

I think Guardiola is one of the only men, along with Jose Mourinho and Guus Hiddink, that is good enough for the job in the eyes of Roman Abramovich and it’s believed that the former Barcelona coach is the Russian’s number one target.

It’s clear that Benitez is passing through, just there to put us in a position where we can bring in a big name coach at the end of the season, but who do you think will be the next permanent boss at Chelsea and why?
