Juande Ramos has been named as a possible replacement at Chelsea for under-fire Jose Mourinho, according to reports in England.
The former Sevilla, Tottenham Hotspur and Real Madrid Coach was latterly in charge of Dnipro and the Times and the Metro suggest that if the Blues, only a point off the relegation zone after 16 games, do sack Mourinho, Ramos could be approached.
Chelsea are the defending Premier League champions but have lost nine games this season, including at surprise leaders Leicester City on Monday.
It’s understood the future of former Madrid boss Mourinho is being discussed by Stamford Bridge bigwigs and Ramos’ name has come up should an appointment be needed.
Ramos has been out of management since leaving Dnipro in 2014 and was a two-time UEFA Cup winner at Sevilla.
He took Tottenham to the 2008 League Cup and finished as runner-up in the Ukrainian League with Dnipro.
Ramos led Madrid between December 2008 and June 2009 before he was replaced by Manuel Pellegrini, and has also sat on the bench at the likes of Levante, Rayo Vallecano, Real Betis and Malaga.
