Mauricio Pochettino, 51, has signed a contract with Chelsea.
European soccer transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano said on April 28 (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 working 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.
At the end of the season, the club hired Frank Lampard, a former Chelsea manager, to take over. Under Lampard, Chelsea didn’t change much. The plan was to find a new manager while Lampard was in charge.
The candidates were varied. Julian Nagelsmann, Luis Enrique, and Zinedine Zidane were among the favorites.메이저놀이터
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, finishing as runners-up in the UEFA Champions League (UCL) in the 2018-19 season. It was Pochettino who brought Son Heung-min to the club.
Pochettino took over at Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) in 2019 after being sacked for poor results. Despite being unhappy with his time at PSG, Chelsea decided that Pochettino was the right man to overhaul their current squad.
