- Club legends like Frank Lampard and John Terry aren’t ideal candidates

It’s been the most talked about vacancy in football over the past week.
Chelsea is still looking at appointing a technical director since Michael Emenalo’s departure on Monday.
The Sun reports that the Blues may have found their man in former Monaco Chief Luis Campos. The Portuguese was responsible for the founding of Monaco’s talent pool of the last few seasons. Campos found prospects like Kylian Mbappe who was the most sought after wonderkid in Europe last season.
It’s reported by The Times that Campos would be open to taking on the role at the champions.
Chelsea should be looking at candidates with experience that fit this role
Club legends like Frank Lampard and John Terry would be welcomed back with open arms. However, neither ticks all the boxes when it comes to looking for a technical director.
The board should be looking at those that have worked in a similar role at clubs that have progressed over the last few years like Monaco or Borussia Dortmund.
Campos could also sort out the club’s loan policy and convince Antonio Conte to trust in some young players.
The 53-year-old seems to be the perfect man to be our new technical director.
