Pedro Rodriguez has welcomed reports that Slavisa Jokanovic could be set to take over from Antonio Conte as Chelsea FC boss this summer.

The managerial situation at Stamford Bridge has been a constant source of speculation in recent weeks amid suggestions that Conte could be on his way out of the west London club.

There is yet to be any official announcement from Chelsea FC as to who will be in charge at the west London club next season, but Fulham boss Jokanovic has been touted as a possible candidate.

Now, Pedro has admitted that he would be pleased to see Jokanovic take over at Stamford Bridge and conceded that there could be a change at the club this summer.

Speaking to the Evening Standard, Pedro said: “We know there might be some changes. We know he [Jokanovic] is a great manager.”

Conte’s situation has been a source of speculation after Chelsea FC missed out on qualification for the Champions League due to their fifth-placed finish in the Premier League table.

The Blues did manage to end the campaign on a positive note, however, as they beat Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley back in May.

Chelsea FC won the Premier League title in Conte’s first season at the club last term.
