Slutsky set to be offered Chelsea position

9th November 2017, 10:05 by Chris Rivers

Hull City manager Leonid Slutsky is reportedly in line to be handed a job at Chelsea as part of a shake-up of the backroom staff.

Blues owner Roman Abramovich is reportedly preparing to take a more 'hands-on' role with the Premier League champions following the departure of technical director Michael Emenalo and is thought to be keen on bringing in ally Slutsky.

The 46-year-old has close ties to the Chelsea owner, who gave the Russian coach access to the club's training ground while he was out of work and putting him up in one of Stamford Bridge's hotels during his search for a job.

Slutsky eventually landed the manager's position at Hull City during the summer but is thought to be on the verge of getting the sack due to the poor start the Tigers have made in the Championship.

Whether he gets the boot from Hull or not, it is understood Abramovich has a job waiting for him in some capacity as part of his shake-up.

The Russian billionaire is also thought to be keen on bringing back Chelsea legend Didier Drogba to help out behind the scenes.
