Chelsea owner Todd Boehly has been urged to hire Brighton manager Roberto De Zerbi as the new Chelsea boss.

Brighton have improved massively under De Zerbi and Tim Sherwood believes the Italian tactician is the real deal.

“That man in your picture there, I don’t know what Chelsea are waiting for,” Sherwood told Premier League Productions.

“They need a manager, just go and get him. I don’t want to sell Brighton’s manager again. The only reason why Chelsea might not go for him is that Graham Potter has let them down.

“But this guy is the real deal. He is the real deal manager. They got £21 million for the other manager and he wasn’t any good.”
