Fuming Abramovich will take charge of new Chelsea manager appointment

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is taking complete control of their next managerial appointment.

The Daily Star says Abramovich will take complete control of picking Chelsea's next boss after being swayed into hiring Rafa Benitez.

The Blues owner regrets employing the ex-Liverpool boss as interim manager after being advised by technical director Michael Emenalo, who pushed hard for the Spaniard to be appointed.

A return for Jose Mourinho to Stamford Bridge is now looking more and more likely this summer, with Borussia Dortmund's highly-rated boss Jurgen Klopp seemingly his closest rival.

Swansea's Michael Laudrup and Argentine Diego Simeone have also been touted as possible new managers, but they are not believed to be serious contenders.
