The owners approved
Chelsea’s owners, Todd Boehly, Behdad Eghbali, José E. Feliciano, Mark Walter, and Hansjörg Wyss, expressed their satisfaction with the thorough and meticulous process carried out by the sporting team in selecting Mauricio Pochettino as the club’s new manager.
They expressed their delight at having Pochettino join Chelsea, acknowledging him as a world-class coach with an exceptional track record. The owners eagerly anticipate his contribution to the club’s success and are excited to have him on board.
Prior to his appointment at Chelsea, Pochettino had been without a managerial role since his departure from Paris Saint-Germain the previous summer.
The announcement of Pochettino’s appointment has generated significant interest, attracting widespread attention from fans and media alike.
He’s lucky and successful
Mauricio Pochettino is widely regarded as one of the most successful and popular managers in recent times, particularly during his tenure at Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea’s fierce London rivals. Despite not winning a trophy with the club, Pochettino left a lasting impact during his time at Spurs.
During his managerial stint at Tottenham, Pochettino achieved an impressive average of 1.89 points per game, which remains the highest for any Tottenham boss in Premier League history, provided they have managed at least 38 Premier League games. His five-year tenure at White Hart Lane culminated in leading Spurs to the 2019 Champions League final, although they were ultimately defeated by Liverpool.
Following the Champions League final, Pochettino’s time at Tottenham came to an end as he was dismissed a few months into the subsequent season due to a poor start. He later took charge of Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) in January 2021, where he achieved success by winning the Coupe de France and securing the Ligue 1 title before his departure.
Graham Potter, who was appointed by owner Todd Boehly, took over at Chelsea but was subsequently sacked in April, despite signing a five-year deal worth £12 million per year. Potter’s tenure at Chelsea saw mixed results, with seven wins, seven draws, and eight losses in the 22 Premier League matches he oversaw.
The situation at Chelsea has been tumultuous, as evidenced by the substantial £330 million spent on new signings in January, pushing their total spending for the season well above £600 million. Former Chelsea player Frank Lampard had a brief and unsuccessful stint as interim manager, winning only one match, and the team finished the season in 12th place with their lowest-ever Premier League points total.
Given these circumstances, Chelsea’s appointment of Mauricio Pochettino brings renewed hope and anticipation for the club’s future, as they aim to overcome their recent challenges and return to a path of success.
