Julian Nagelsmann’s agent explains why client turned down Chelsea

An insight into Chelsea’s failed pursuit of Julian Nagelsmann has been provided by his agent.

After a poor run of form that saw Chelsea sat 11th in the league, Graham Potter was sacked.

Following Potter’s sacking, former Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann was heavily linked with the job.

In the end, it looks set to be Mauricio Pochettino who takes the reins heading into 2023/24.

But now, Nagelsmann’s agent has explained why the German did not end up taking the job in west London.

Speaking to Bild podcast Phrasenmaher, Volker Struth said: “I can confirm that Chelsea were quick to call (after Nagelsmann was sacked by Bayern Munich). There were some phone conversations.

“It was the right decision not to go there. It’s a club in troubled waters at the moment. And their transfer policy, spending a few hundred million euros, has raised expectations that need to be met. There were also some other issues.

Chelsea are currently 11th in the Premier League with 43 points from 35 games.
