Mauricio Pochettino will be confirmed as CHELSEA’s next permanent manager within the next 48 hours.
After sacking Thomas Tuchel and Graham Potter this season and the hiring Frank Lampard until the end of the season – it has been a crazy few months for Chelsea fans to witness with their club.
But the club are looking to the future now and have decided that former Tottenham and PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino will be the man that leads the club from next season, after he agreed to make the move back to the Premier League.
According to the Telegraph, Pochettino has signed a three-year deal and will quickly get to work, trimming a bloated squad that has become close to unmangeable.
Frank Lampard was asked to sum up the task that awaits Pochettino after Thursday night’s miserable 4-1 defeat against Manchester United at Old Trafford and the interim boss conceded it would be far from straightforward.
He said: ‘It remains to be seen, but I can’t jump into the future. I think it’s a fantastic job because it’s the Chelsea job.
‘When I took it, the first time I came, I probably got the job because a lot of top manager’s didn’t want the job. I know that for a fact, it was a big part of it, but I enjoy the process and I enjoy coming in.
‘I wish the new manager well. It’s his problem, I guess,” before jokingly telling reporters: “Is that the headline you wanted?
There is no doubt Pochettino is a great coach – and is a man that knows the Premier League very well so he should be a very good appointment by the club.
There will always be doubts when new managers come into a club – but Blues fans know how Pochettino likes to play the game, his style of play and what he will demand from the players.
It should be a busy summer for the club as Poch wants players that will suit his style – but he should be a very good appointment that is for sure.
