Mauricio Pochettino’s destination is narrowing down to Chelsea as time goes on.
Reporter Fabrizio Romano, who is well versed in the European transfer market, tweeted: “Negotiations between Pochettino and Chelsea are going smoothly. It’s not finished, but it looks like an agreement is gradually being reached. Pochettino told his division coaches, ‘ Let’s get ready,” he said.
Chelsea are currently running under interim manager Frank Lampard, with Thomas Tuchel and Graham Porter resigning only this season. Lampard’s job is to finish the season as well as possible. Chelsea is so sluggish that it is considered one of the biggest surprises in the English Premier League (EPL). They are only 11th with 39 points. Even after replacing the manager and appointing Lampard as interim manager, the performance continues to deteriorate.토토사이트
Chelsea accelerated the selection of a formal manager. Luis Enrique, former coach of the Spanish national team, and Julian Nagelsmann, former coach of Bayern Munich, were also contacted, but were excluded from the nomination last week. Pochettino has become Chelsea’s number one player.
Manager Pochettino has the richest EPL experience among the managers mentioned. He spent five seasons as Tottenham Hotspur manager from 2015 after taking charge of Southampton from 2013 to 2014. It is evaluated that Tottenham has been placed in the Big 6 ranks. In particular, in the 2018-2019 season, he led Tottenham to the finals of the UEFA Champions League (UCL) for the first time in history.
Gary Neville, who is active as a football expert, also saw Pochettino as the most promising Chelsea manager. “Chelsea needs a manager who can take over the team right away,” said Neville.
Manager Pochettino has been linked with other clubs such as Tottenham, but Chelsea is the most likely. Reporter Romano added: “Chelsea will make a final decision soon.”
