Prior to that, he spent seven seasons coaching in the Bundesliga, first with Mainz, where he led them into the Europa League, and then a successful period with Borussia Dortmund where he won the German Cup. At Chelsea, he will be reunited with Christian Pulisic and Thiago Silva who he coached during his spells in Dortmund and Paris respectively.

Borussia Dortmund 0-2 Mainz: Shock loss has Favre’s men looking over their shoulde

Mainz claimed a stunning 2-0 win at Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday, boosting their survival chances. Borussia Dortmund's grip on second in the Bundesliga has loosened slightly after they suffered a surprise 2-0 defeat at home to struggling Mainz, who took a huge step towards safety. Dortmund had seen Bayern Munich clinch an eighth successive Bundesliga crown on Tuesday, and perhaps the disappointment combined with the realisation of their title hopes being over was to blame for a lacklustre performance at Signal Iduna Park. For all of their monopolisation of the ball, Dortmund struggled to supply Erling Haaland with adequate service and Mainz took a shock lead into the break thanks to Jonathan Burkardt's header at the end of a slick counter.

Tuchel, Wenger And The Coaches Who Could Replace Emery As PSG Boss

The inevitable was confirmed on Friday, when Unai Emery admitted that he will leave Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season. There was no indication as to whether the Spaniard jumped or was pushed, but regardless, the Ligue 1 champions have to find themselves a new coach to lead them into the 2018-19 season. With a squad containing the likes of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, they should prove to be an attractive proposition for any incoming coach, although the stakes are high; failure to reach at least the Champions League semi-finals will leave Emery's successor vulnerable to the chop. A variety of coaches have been linked with the role, and here Goal looks at those who are the five front-runners for the position... CARLO ANCELOTTI His spell in charge began in inauspicious circ...

West Ham Line Up Julian Nagelsmann To Replace Slaven Bilic

Nagelsmann, 30, is seen as one of the hottest young coaching talents around after leading Hoffenheim into Germany's top four last season, having taken over  as the youngest manager in Bundesliga history. He was tipped as a potential successor to Carlo Ancelotti at Bayern Munich last month but West Ham have eyed him as a potential big-name appointment, with former Borussia Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel also on their list. The Hammers are already tentatively considering their options with Bilic two games away from potentially losing his job and his contract almost certain not to be renewed at the end of the season. The Croatian coach has been given Wednesday's Carabao Cup trip to Tottenham and Saturday's Premier League game at Crystal Palace to prove his worth after a worrying downturn a...

Gerrard Wants To Be Liverpool Manager – Klopp

Jurgen Klopp has revealed that Steven Gerrard wants to become Liverpool manager and has backed the club legend to succeed if and when he is offered the chance. Klopp is currently in the role but has recently seen the former England midfielder offered a chance to cut his coaching teeth in the club’s youth ranks.

Speaking to Kicker, Klopp said: “I asked him directly: ‘What would you like?’ He said he wanted to be manager. “That was wonderful.
