Video: Craig Bellamy Tips Brendan Rodgers to Replace Antonio Conte at Chelsea

Craig Bellamy has tipped Brendan Rodgers to replace Antonio Conte when he leaves Chelsea.

The Italian manager’s future at Stamford Bridge is continually a talking point despite him appearing happy with leading the Blues.

They might not be up competing for the English Premier League title, but they’re still in third, in the last four of the Carabao Cup and in the last 16 of the Champions League too.

To add to that, he’s managing some of the best players in the world and we could think of worse places to have a job than in London.

But the rumours about his stay at Chelsea being a short one continue and it was a topic of discussion for Geoff Shreeves, Gordon Strachan and Bellamy on Sky Sports’ The Debate last night.

Turning to what would happen after Conte, former Hoops striker Bellamy made the bold shout of tipping Celtic manager Rodgers to take over at Stamford Bridge.

And Strachan agreed – although the former Scotland gaffer was wary of annoying his old boss Peter Lawwell:

Rodgers has obviously enjoyed major success at Celtic since taking over from Ronny Deila as the club’s manager.

In his first season, he won the treble while going unbeaten domestically – and that streak actually continued to 69 games before the 4-0 defeat to Hearts last weekend.

He’s obviously well known to fans in England too for his spell as Liverpool manager, which ultimately ended in his sacking in 2015.

Chelsea fans – would you be happy with Rodgers after Conte?
