Emma Hayes 'close to landing huge manager's role' as Chelsea drop major hint over legendary boss' next job | The Sun

EMMA HAYES is reportedly close to landing a HUGE new job after Chelsea announced she will be stepping down as manager of the club.

Hayes has had a superb spell with The Blues winning six Women’s Super League titles, five Women’s FA Cups and two FA Women’s League Cups.

And her impressive record may have earned her a seat in one of the highest profile roles in women’s football.

According to US football writerJoseph Lowery, the decorated manager is set to be announced as the new head coach of the US Women’s national team.

He claims: "Hayes will continue with Chelsea until the end of the WSL season.

"She may join the USWNT during international breaks before taking over fully."

And US football site The Equalizer claim Hayes is in "advanced discussions with US Soccer" over her new role.

Although it has not yet been announced that she will take up the role with the USWNT, Chelsea’s statement seems to indicate what the future may hold.

On the club website they suggested that the 47-year-old is going to be moving away from the WSL and club football as a whole.

It read: “Chelsea FC can today confirm that highly decorated Chelsea Women’s manager Emma Hayes OBE will depart the club at the end of the season to pursue a new opportunity outside of the WSL and club football.”

Hayes will remain in charge of the club until the 2023/24 season comes to a close in May.

Which will be music to the ears of Blues fans with their side currently sat top of the table and unbeaten in the opening five games of the campaign.

But may come as a concern to stateside fans if the rumours about her new role prove to be true.

The proposed scheduling would mean the US Women’s team would continue with a temporary boss in place until Hayes was able to take over full time.

Twila Kilgore was appointed as the interim head coach for the national side in Ausgust and could remain in place until Hayes’ arrival.
