The subject of whether or not Antonio Conte will hang on to his job at Stamford Bridge remains a hugely debatable topic.

We`re all aware that all may not be well behind the scenes and that, already, the media have mentioned several possible candidates as the next incumbent of the managerial hot-seat at Stamford Bridge.

One name that continues to be mentioned in the same sentence as Conte`s replacement is the former Barcelona boss, Luis Enrique.

On paper, Enrique would seem to be an ideal candidate, whilst with Barcelona he won:

? Champions League
? La Liga (x2)
? Copa del Rey (x3)
? UEFA Super Cup
? FIFA Club World Cup
? Spanish Super Cup

It seems that those achievements have made Luis Enrique the favourite for the job, if Conte and Chelsea part-company.

It also seems that, in an interview he gave to the media vehicle, Cope, and as picked up by the red-top publication, The Mirror, our own Marcos Alonso was backed into a corner during an interview, with the wing-back being asked about Luis Enrique.

Alonso, trying to remain diplomatic, came back with a pretty decent answer, remarking,

“Luis Enrique has shown at Barcelona that he is a great coach with many qualities and I believe he would be good for any club, but I do not know him a lot on a personal level.”

Probably so, but it shouldn`t be forgotten that whilst at the Camp Nou, Enrique had a vast array of talent at his disposal.

If called upon would he prove to be the same success at Chelsea?
