Chelsea has officially reached an agreement that will put an end to their extensive quest for a new manager.
The Blues have successfully secured the services of former Tottenham boss, Mauricio Pochettino, who will take on the role of Chelsea’s new head coach.
It is worth recalling that Chelsea had been actively seeking a replacement since the dismissal of their former manager, Graham Potter, on April 2, 2023.
Following Potter’s departure, former Chelsea star Frank Lampard stepped in as the caretaker manager, remaining in charge until the conclusion of the current season where Mauricio will be taking full charge of the English Premier League club.
Having been out of work since his dismissal from Paris Saint-Germain last summer, Pochettino’s appointment marks his return to the Premier League. Interestingly, he was previously let go by Chelsea’s London rivals, Spurs, back in November 2019.
According to reports from The Atletics, all the necessary terms have finally been agreed upon, and the 51-year-old Pochettino will bring his entire backroom team along with him to Stamford Bridge.
This includes long-serving assistants Jesus Perez and Miguel D’Agostino, goalkeeper coach Toni Jimenez, and even his sport scientist son, Sebastiano Pochettino.
While an official announcement is expected to be made at the beginning of next week, Pochettino will officially assume his new role during the upcoming summer, taking charge of the Chelsea squad.
