Raft of new signings at almost every top club coupled with top managers like Pep Guardiola, Antonio Conte, Jurgen Klopp, and José Mourinho starting their new campaigns with their new clubs is expected to make competition intense. Ivanovic had a very poor 2015-16 campaign, but he seemed to recover from the problems towards the end of the campaign. His positivity was displayed during pre-season and he is expected to be amongst the first team regulars chosen by Conte.

He said that many teams can challenge for the title and this will make it difficult for them. The best thing to do is to take each game as it comes and make sure that they get maximum points from them.

Branislav Ivanovic said that

Ivanovic is certain the next season will be the toughest one yet

Branislav Ivanovic has helped Chelsea on winning 2 Premier League titles, back during the 2009-10 and the 2014-15 season.

The Serbian defender knows a thing or two about lifting the English piece of silverware and the experienced player has recently stated that the upcoming 2016-17 season of the Premier League will be the toughest one that he will ever play with Chelsea and he has warned the rest of his teammates about what lies ahead.

‘’This could definitely be the toughest Premier League ever. Every team is strengthening and every team, after last season when Leicester won, want to be better and be the new surprise.

Chelsea bidding for Ivanovic replacement

Chelsea may have found the perfect replacement for Branislav Ivanovic in Victor Lindelof. Antonio Conte is not only building a team for the short team, but he is also thinking about the long term.

There is no doubt that Branislav Ivanovic has been a faithful player for Chelsea, but we must admit that he is not going to get any younger. As a manager, it is important that you keep planning about the future if you want to ensure that your team is successful in the long-run.

Branislav A Fixed Asset For Chelsea

There are certain players whose future remains uncertain. For instance, Branislav is being debated over for the forthcoming season.

This Chelsea player’s future for the upcoming season is yet to be decided. Even though he is vice captain of the team and has an impressive lineup of achievements under his belt, it is still too early to decide his forthcoming role in the team or so it looks like.

For instance, he has had 43 starts and appearances that run into hundreds in domestic cups as well as in the Champions league. Chelsea will be seeing players like Petr Cech and Didier Drogba leaves the club as the season ends. Ivanovic as a result might land up to be one of the players who have served the team for the longest time. The list of all time appearances has his name on it.

Guus Hiddink not sure about Future after leaving Club

Chelsea interim manager Guus Hiddink says that he is not sure what the future holds for after leaving the club for a second spell.

The Dutchman has been at Chelsea twice in his career but both were as the interim manager. In the first instance, he was reluctant to give up his role as the Russian national team boss in favour of a permanent move to Chelsea. Now, his age appears to prevent him from taking over at the club on a permanent basis. A much younger Antonio Conte has been announced as the permanent replacement for Jose Mourinho starting from July.

Claudio Ranieri thanked Guus Hiddink for Performance of Club

Guus Hiddink has revealed that Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri thanked him for helping the club in the Premier League title for the first time in a remarkable achievement.

Leicester City were looking to win the title if Tottenham dropped points against Chelsea on Monday night. Leicester could only manage a draw with Manchester United on Sunday, but they still recovered just two points in order to seal the title with two games left. Even then, there was some nervousness surrounding Claudio Ranieri in recent days. The Italian revealed that he will not be watching the game between Chelsea and Spurs since he would be on the plane to Italy.
