Chelsea had been in battered form this season. They had seen modifications in the board quite frequently this season. It was rumored about some of the possible replacements of Graham Potter, who was sacked in April. As of the latest reports, former PSG and Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has agreed on terms to become the new boss of the “Blues”.
Pochettino to be the new coach of “Blues”
Mauricio Pochettino has been one of the valuable coaches who has proved his mettle in the Premier League while at the helm for Tottenham, guiding them to the Champions League final. Now the competition might get a bit tough as he is all set to guide Chelsea, who are having a dismal season, staying in the 11th position.
The Argentine has emerged as the frontrunner for the managerial job at Stamford Bridge following Potter’s sacking last month.
Latest to cross the London barrier
Pochettino did stay in the Premier League twice before and has achieved some accolades to his name, most prominent being the 2019 Champions League final, with Tottenham, before losing out to fellow Premier League club Liverpool.
During his rein at Spurs, fans witnessed some of the best performances of the North London club, with several players like Lucas Moura and Son Heung-Min rising to prominence. A comparatively silent figure on the sidelines, he might be one of the best fits for a battered Chelsea in the next season, considering the hoard of young players Chelsea boasts of, including Mudryk, Mount, and Gallagher.
A PSG manager too
He has been at the helm for PSG, too, winning the Ligue 1. With his winning attitude and never-say-never mentality, he could mold Chelsea into a better team. It will be his first job in 12 months since sacked from PSG.
His ability to develop players in a group has made him one of the perfect managers at Stamford Bridge, with the thought of making a core group of both young and experienced players who can be able to compete at all levels.
He would look for some potential signings next season, with Emi Martinez and Declan Rice among the top favorites.
