Argentine ‘on Chelsea’s hit list’

Former Argentina boss Marcelo Bielsa is the shock name on Chelsea’s hit list if they replace Andre Villas-Boas, according to the Daily Mirror.

AVB's position is under scrutiny.

Bielsa, who manages Atletico Bilbao, is believed to be one of a number of possible appointments considered by Chelsea as pressure grows on AVB.

The Daily Mail claim former Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez is high on the list of candidates to take over at Stamford Bridge for the rest of the season if a change is made following tonight’s vital Champions League match against Napoli.

The Mail also say Blues owner Roman Abramovich has considered Fabio Capello but was told the ex-England manager would not be interested in a short-term position

And The Sun say AVB, who insists he will not be sacked, would like Abramovich to publicly declare his support for him.
