The Blues need a strong and radical reconstruction in the summer of 2023. To implement that plan, the London team must appoint Mauricio Pochettino.
The overcast sky is covering the Stamford Bridge Stadium. This is the first time since 1996 that Chelsea are outside the top 10 in the Premier League. The departure of Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich and coach Thomas Tuchel is considered the beginning of the Blues’ poor results in recent times.
Owner Todd Boehly shows haste in deciding Graham Potter to take the position of Chelsea head coach. After a series of bad matches, Potter received a dismissal. Shortly after, Frank Lampard was appointed interim coach.
The constant changes on the coaching bench did not help Chelsea out of the crisis. After 36 matches, the Blues ranked 12th in the Premier League table.
Chelsea showed a strong hand in the market when breaking the safe, approving to spend 600 million pounds at the Summer and Winter markets this season. After all, the London team received dismal results.
In the context of that mess, the news that Mauricio Pochettino reached an agreement to sit in the hot seat of Chelsea next season became the light at the end of the tunnel with the London team.
The CV of the Argentine strategist gives hope to many Chelsea fans. Pochettino has more than enough experience to lead the army in the foggy country. The 51-year-old captain left a bold mark throughout his time leading Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur.
The period of sitting in the hot seat of PSG certainly gives Pochettino more ability to tackle a dressing room full of stars with big egos.
Is Pochettino really the right fit for Chelsea? Will the former PSG coach be able to revive and help the Blues revive strongly? Let’s hear from some experts.
Sky Sports journalist Melissa Reddy puts it this way: “When you look at the current position, the structure of the squad, the staff of Chelsea; Compare it with the teams managed by Pochettino in the past, you will find the perfect symmetry. Chelsea’s appointment of Pochettino is completely grounded .”
“ Chelsea needs a clear direction and development plan alongside a comprehensive overhaul. Those requirements match the skill set and qualities of Pochettino.”
“ Chelsea doesn’t need too many things to be successful. They need the right, talented coach to get things back on track. Pochettino owns a separate football philosophy and identity. It provides direction in Chelsea’s transfer plans.”
Pochettino made successful revolutions at Southampton, Tottenham. That is indirectly bringing impressive field results to the two teams of the foggy country.
At Southampton, Pochettino ‘s personalized program helps Adam Lallana avoid unfortunate injuries, ensuring a fitness foundation throughout the season. After joining Liverpool in 2014, Lallana faced the old ‘ghost’ when he was frequently injured.
Ryan Mason is the second best example. Pochettino and assistant Jesus Perez help Mason regain confidence after suffering a terrible injury. Pochettino and Perez have supported, laid the foundation for Mason to embark on a professional coaching path later.
Pochettino focuses on understanding the personal lives of players, the thoughts and thoughts of his students. The Argentinian strategist chats, encourages and pushes the players forward, to overcome their limits.
Transfer plans, personnel will play an important role if Pochettino wants to revive Chelsea . A series of ‘redundant’ faces are likely to have to leave Stamford Bridge.
Christian Pulisic, Hakim Ziyech, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Cesar Azpilicueta, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Mateo Kovacic…. facing the scenario of finding a new landing this summer.
A bright future awaits Chelsea if Pochettino takes the hot seat at Stamford bridge. Chairman Boehly needs to quickly appoint a chief architect for the plan to rebuild the team into London .
