He continued, “Chelsea is a club in trouble and a club full of problems. In particular, the manager had a lot of responsibility for Chelsea’s transfer policy, which costs hundreds of millions of euros, and the manager had to fulfill the policy. There were many other problems,” he added.
Finally, Struth emphasized: “Again, Nagelsmann was Chelsea’s number one manager. From our information, that’s certain. Had Nagelsmann accepted the Chelsea offer, he could have been Chelsea manager.”
Coach Nagelsmann, who rejected Chelsea, is currently being discussed as the number one manager of Chelsea’s league rival Tottenham.
