Chelsea add RB Leipzig coach Rangnick to manager shortlist

RB Leipzig coach Ralf Rangnick has emerged as a candidate to succeed Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea.

Sarri is expected to move to Juventus - despite Chelsea holding up the deal due to their compensation demands.

And BILD says among those being considered to replace the Italian - which include Derby County manager Frank Lampard - is also Rangnick.

Adding to the speculation was last week's announcement from RBL that Rangnick would be giving up his dual coaching and sporting director role to become the new Head of Sports and Development for the RB locations in Brazil, New York and Leipzig.

However, Rangnick has also insisted he won't rule out returning to coaching for the right offer.

"I cannot and do not want to exclude that I will be a coach again at some point. I still feel too young and too fit for that," he said.
