Manchester United legend feels Pochettino is the right man Chelsea

Manchester United legend Gary Neville is the right man to take charge at Chelsea. He said on Monday night football last month:-

“Based on what [Chelsea co-owner Todd] Boehly has said, Chelsea have done their spending for the next three years – apart from signing a centre-forward.

“If they appoint Zinedine Zidane, Luis Enrique or Diego Simeone, they’re going to want to have another £300m as they won’t like some of the players they’ve previously signed.

“They’ve got to appoint a manager who is going to inherit and like the squad that they’ve got. A lot of them are young – and I think that man is Mauricio Pochettino.”
