Chelsea likely to appoint Pochettino as new head coach

Chelsea is to appoint Mauricio Pochettino as their manager for the next premier league season, as per the Sky Sports report. Current manager Frank Lampard will leave at the month’s end. The Argentine national, Mauricio Pochettino has previously managed Tottenham Hotspur. During his term at Tottenham, he was in charge for 293 matches. He managed to win 160 games, losing 73 and drawing 60 matches. The 51-year-old last managed Paris Saint Germain. After having a disappointing run in the UEFA Champions League he was sacked by the club owners. At Paris Saint Germain he managed the side for 84 matches out of which he won 56, losing 15 and drawing 15. Since July 5, 2022, he was without a club. Chelsea after sacking Thomas Tuchel earlier this season has struggled to find their rhythm as they kept on losing matches and their goal-scoring run ability wholly vanished. Another reason can be the frequent changes of managers. After sacking Thomas Tuchel, Chelsea appointed Graham Potter as their new manager. He too failed to stabilise the squad. In 31 matches he managed to win just 12 games losing eight and drawing 11 games. His poor run of results forced the Chelsea owner Todd Boehly to sack the manager again.
