‘FINALLY HERE WE GO’ Pochettino to face SON…Chelsea boss to sign three-year deal + return to EPL

Mauricio Pochettino, 51, has signed a new contract with Chelsea.

European football transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano said on the 28th (KST), “Pochettino has finally signed a contract with Chelsea after reaching a verbal agreement two weeks ago. The official statement is ready and he will start work next week. The contract is until 2026.”

Chelsea have had a turbulent season. They started the season under Thomas Tuchel, but he was sacked after a poor start and Graham Potter was brought in from Brighton. However, Potter underperformed Tuchel and was eventually sacked again.안전놀이터

At the end of the season, Tuchel appointed former Chelsea manager Frank Lampard as his replacement. Under Lampard, Chelsea didn’t change much. The plan was for Chelsea to find a new manager while Lampard was in charge.

The candidates were varied. Julian Nagelsmann, Luis Enrique, and Zinedine Zidane were among the favourites.

However, Chelsea chose Pochettino. Pochettino has experience in the English Premier League (EPL), having managed Tottenham from 2014 to 2019. Spurs were at their peak under Pochettino and finished runners-up in the UEFA Champions League (UCL) in the 2018-19 season. It was Pochettino who signed Son Heung-min.

Pochettino took charge of Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) in 2019 after being sacked for poor results. Despite being unhappy at PSG, Chelsea decided that Pochettino was the right man to overhaul their current squad.
