According to Skybet the managers in the running are :
Jose Mourinho 5/2
Guus Hiddink 7/2
Pep Guardiola 5/1
Gianfranco Zola 8/1
Frank Rijkaard 10/1
Rafa Benitez 12/1
Those names don't fill me with confidence, if I had to put money on it, I'd put it on Frank Rijkaard.
Jose Mourinho It is believed he's interested in the Manchester United job.
Rafa Benitez After crippling Liverpool, would be a terrible choice.
Frank Rijkaard After his stint at Barcelona, has to be in the running.
Gianfranco Zola I'd love to see this, you can't help but love the man.
Pep Guardiola No chance, none at all.
Guus Hiddink Good friends with Abramovic and impressed in his short stint as Chelsea boss.
After looking at the candidates, I don't think any of them are better than Ancelotti. Chelsea need stability after a lot of chopping and changing, see Manchester United and to a lesser extent Arsenal.
