Chelsea Set To Appoint Former Tottenham Boss

Chelsea is reportedly in talks to appoint Mauricio Pochettino as the club’s next head coach.

Upon sacking graham potter at the beginning of April, the blues hierarchy made the decision to bring in former boss and club legend Frank Lampard on a caretaker basis.

Had Lampard led Chelsea to the champions league final, the Englishman would have been in contention to remain at Stamford bridge in the long term, but the 4-0 aggregate defeat to real Madrid in the quarter-finals meant that any possibility of a permanent second stint was ruled out.

As a result, it appeared likely that either Julian Nagelsmann or Luis Enrique would eventually be handed the reins, yet both candidates were out of the race come last Friday.

At the same time, Pochettino became the clear favorite to return to the premier league having previously managed fellow London club Tottenham Hotspur.

Although it has been widely reported that Burnley boss Vincent Kompany is also under consideration, Pochettino is said to have made a positive impression on Todd Boehly and fellow club officials.

With Chelsea having just seven premier league fixtures left and with little but Europa conference league qualification to play for, an announcement may be made before the end of the season.

Pochettino has spent this season out of work having been relieved of his duties at Paris saint-Germain last year, a consequence of their last-16 exit from the champion’s league.

Nevertheless, the 51-year-old remains highly regarded in Europe, helped by his stint at spurs where the club became premier league title challengers and reached a champions league final.

In recent days, it has also been claimed that a number of Chelsea players would support the appointment, arguably a key factor when it comes to Boehly and co making their final choice.
