Chelsea will announce a new manager this week.
England’s ‘The Athletic’ reported on the 8th (local time) that ‘Chelsea owner Todd Boelli’s new managerial appointment will be finalized this week, with the announcement of former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino. Chelsea had a tumultuous time this season, sacking two managers, Thomas Tuchel and Graham Porter.
Currently, 카지노사이트 Chelsea legend Frank Lampard is holding the baton, but it is an acting role. He will lead Chelsea until the end of this season. Acting Lampard ended the dark history of losing all six matches last weekend and won his first win.
Pochettino’s appointment was already reserved. Reports surfaced last month that he had already reached a verbal agreement to take the helm at Chelsea.
It is also a ‘complete farewell’ with Tottenham. Coach Pochettino, who served as the manager of Espanyol and Southampton, was in full bloom at Tottenham.
He directed Tottenham for 5 years and 6 months from May 2014 to November 2019. In the 2018-2019 season, he left a deep impression on fans by leading Tottenham to the European Champions League (UCL) final.
Tottenham fans strongly hoped for Pochettino’s return after Antonio Conte’s layover. However, Chairman Daniel Levy refused.
After stepping down from Tottenham coach Pochettino, he rose to Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) coaching tower in January 2021. In his first season, he led the team to the French Ligue 1 title, but left PSG after failing to win the Champions League.
There is a reason Boelli’s owners chose Pochettino as manager. He invested a whopping 600 million pounds (about 1 trillion won) in the two transfer markets this season.
However, Chelsea’s current position is 11th in the English Premier League. In the end, the recruited players must be used in the right place, and manager Pochettino is the right person. Manager Pochettino is also evaluated as excellent in nurturing players.
He created a great sensation by building a ‘DESK line’ from Tottenham to Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen, Son Heung-min and Harry Kane. Even if the appointment is announced, Pochettino will lead Chelsea from next season.
