‘Surreal’ to see Argentine at Chelsea – fans told


Owners Todd Boehly, Behdad Eghbali, José E. Feliciano, Mark Walter and Hansjörg Wyss added have announced their delight that Mauricio Pochettino is now the clubs new boss.

Despite spending £600m in the last two transfer windows, we finished 12th in the Premier League – the first time they finished in the bottom half for 27 years.

And the club ended the season without a trophy and will not play in Europe next season, which is why the decision was made to hire a top-class boss

Pochettino had been out of work since being sacked by Paris Saint-Germain last summer after 18 months in charge of the French side, having guided them to the Ligue 1 title in 2022 and the French Cup the year before.

He was the clubs number one choice and Owners Todd Boehly, Behdad Eghbali, José E. Feliciano, Mark Walter and Hansjörg Wyss have expressed their delght that he is now at the club.

They told the Chelsea website: ‘The sporting team conducted a diligent and thoughtful process that the Board is proud of.

‘We are delighted that Mauricio will be joining Chelsea. Mauricio is a world-class coach with an outstanding track record.

‘We are all looking forward to having him on board.’

Sky Sports News’ Paul Gilmour has revealed it is surreal to see Pochettino at Chelsea: “It is quite surreal with it being a manager, certainly in English football, who is associated with Tottenham, Chelsea’s rivals.

“Mauricio Pochettino knows that he will have a big job on his hands at Chelsea with rebuilding. The squad is huge, the numbers need to come well down.

“We also heard Harry Kane talk a few weeks ago about the values that were created under Pochettino and that is something that he has as his biggest strength. He knows how to bring a group of players together. He is very much a people person, somebody who can galvanise and work with what he has got.

“Chelsea have spent a large amount of money but he will have money to spend. You would expect him to tweak and add further strength in certain positions.”
