Chelsea News Head Coach: Reportedly, Chelsea has reached out to Mauricio Pochettino, the former manager of Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), to discuss the position of head coach at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues fired Graham Potter and brought back Frank Lampard to serve as interim manager. The west Londoners, though, are anticipated to make a major move this summer to hire a new permanent manager.
Fabrizio Romano claims that Mauricio Pochettino, along with Julian Nagelsmann and Luis Enrique, is at the top of their wishlist. According to Romano, the Blues have reached out to Pochettino, but negotiations have not progressed very far thus far. When the new season begins, Nagelsmann is still expected to take over permanently.
Since he departed from PSG after the previous season, Pochettino has remained unemployed. He was formerly the manager of Chelsea’s London rivals, Tottenham Hotspur, giving him valuable experience in the Premier League.
During his 293 games in charge, the Argentine led Spurs to 160 victories. He took them to the UEFA Champions League final and helped them fight for the trophy twice. The Blues’ selection may be influenced by his track record as a manager in England.
Hakim Ziyech, a winger for Chelsea, came agonizingly close to making a January loan transfer to Paris Saint-Germain. But because of bureaucratic issues, the Moroccan had to remain in London.
Frank McAvennie, a former striker for West Ham United, has advised Ziyech to sign with Tottenham Hotspur rather than the French side. This season, Ziyech has played in only 20 games for Chelsea in all competitions. An assist was credited to him. His current deal with the club is set to end in 2025, and Transfermarkt estimates that he’s worth €18 million.
