Rumor has it that manager Mauricio Pochettino is already back at Chelsea.
Chelsea have hired Pochettino. Chelsea announced on its official website on the 29th (Korean time) that “Chelsea is delighted to have manager Pochettino as the team’s manager from the 2023-24 season.” Manager Pochettino will begin his duties on 1 July 2023, with the club holding a two-year contract with the option to extend it for another year.메이저사이트
Chelsea executives expressed their anticipation for the appointment of Pochettino, saying, “We are delighted to have Pochettino join Chelsea. He is a world-class coach with excellent strategies. We are looking forward to joining him.”
Pochettino is a manager who is good at managing the squad. He is evaluated as having the advantage of maximizing a player’s talent through gentle leadership and proper tactical combination. Especially in Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur, where there were many promising players, his talent was properly revealed.
It is also an advantage that he has Premier League (EPL) experience. As mentioned above, coach Pochettino has a career in coaching two clubs in the EPL, and despite not winning the championship, he has achieved outstanding results by raising the level of the team to the next level.
This is the type Chelsea needs. Chelsea have increased the size of their squad this season with aggressive signings, but they have had to accept a disastrous 12th place in the league as the players are not properly assembled and the motivation has also collapsed. In order to improve Chelsea’s situation, manager Pochettino’s ability to appoint players according to the situation and present the team’s vision must be demonstrated.

Pochettino will start reducing the roster first. Chelsea’s first-team squad currently consists of 32 players. It is a situation that must be reduced not only for financial problems but also to guarantee the playing time that players want.
Pochettino plans to send seven players. Pierre Emeric Aubameyang, Matteo Kovacic, Christian Pulisic, Hakim Ziyech, Edouard Mendy, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are players that Pochettino and Chelsea feel are not needed in the team.
N’Golo Kante’s future is also unclear. His contract with Chelsea expires at the end of this season, but he has yet to reach an agreement to renew it. Local media are predicting that Pochettino will place Kante in midfield next season alongside Enzo Fernandez.
Mason Mount, ‘Sacred Bone Youth’, remains as the core. Mount has been slowly pushed out of the starting lineup this season amid multiple coach changes and injuries. Mount, who has been a regular since the 2019-20 season, is currently linked with Manchester United and Liverpool, who need reinforcements in the midfield.
Pochettino wants Mount. Reporter Kinsella said: “Coach Pochettino sees Mount as the key to the rebuilding. He will ask Chelsea to resume negotiations with Mount.” expected
Once the team is organized, the recruitment process will begin in earnest. Reporter Kinsella said, “Coach Pochettino agrees to sign an attacker, goalkeeper and midfielder to strengthen the team’s spine line.”
