Albert Ferrer insists that former Barcelona manager Luis Enrique would be a great fit at Chelsea, ESPN reports.

Luis Enrique is the favourite to succeed Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge with the Italian’s future at the club in the balance.

When speaking to ESPN FC, ex-Chelsea defender Ferrer believes that due to Enrique’s credentials and style, his Spanish compatriot would be the perfect man to manage the club.

ESPN quotes Ferrer saying:

“As a coach, he wants his teams to be aggressive, to be committed. I think he would fit in perfectly [at Chelsea], and there are already several Spanish players there.”

Enrique won nine major trophies at Barcelona including an unprecedented treble in 2015.

Despite a lack of experience outside of Spain, there’s no doubt Chelsea would be willing to take a risk on him.

Conte like Enrique had major success at just one club before being appointed in the summer of 2016.
