Former Chelsea captain Marcel Desailly has revealed he would be happy if Laurent Blanc replaced Antonio Conte as Chelsea boss.
“I would be very happy if Laurent Blanc becomes the new manager of Chelsea, but if it doesn’t work, I want to give another chance to Conte,” Desailly told Goal .
“He had to make some concessions about his system, his philosophy and his method of working. In 2016-2017, he won the Premier League with a revolutionary three-man defence. It was a weird year because a lot of teams were in transition, like Manchester City, Liverpool and United.”
Desailly played over 200 games for Chelsea between 1998 and 2004, winning the UEFA Super Cup and the FA Cup during his time with the Blues.
