Mauricio Pochettino will become sixth permanent manager of Chelsea in five years. Following the dismissals of Thomas Tuchel and Graham Potter earlier this season.
It is expected that Chelsea will officially announce the appointment of Mauricio Pochettino this week. As the 51-year-old former Tottenham boss has verbally agreed to become the next manager at Stamford Bridge.
Under the leadership of co-owners Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali, the Chelsea board has selected Mauricio Pochettino as the new manager of the club. Pochettino will be taking over from Graham Potter. Who had signed a five-year deal but only managed to last seven months in the position.
Who are the 4 Chelsea players under the axe
Kepa Arrizabalaga : The Chelsea Goalie
Despite the seemingly impossible task of reclaiming his number one spot from Edouard Mendy after Chelsea’s Champions League victory in 2021, the Spanish goalkeeper has displayed remarkable mental strength.
Having participated in 26 league games this season, Kepa has achieved nine clean sheets but has also conceded 27 goals. In the recent 2-2 draw with Nottingham Forest, he was benched, making it intriguing to observe whether he will make a return for the remaining three games of the campaign.
Raheem Sterling: The winger
Sterling’s performance has been enigmatic, showing glimpses of brilliance. He stood out as the best Chelsea player over the weekend, securing a point for the Blues with his goals.
In all competitions, the 28-year-old has registered nine goals and four assists in 36 games. However, he has encountered injury problems and has appeared uncertain in certain matches, struggling with overthinking, under-hitting, or over-hitting passes and finishes.
Kai Havertz: The striker
Identifying Kai Havertz’s primary strength has proven to be quite challenging. As a striker, he has not been prolific enough in terms of scoring goals. As a winger, his speed falls short of expectations. Additionally, as a midfielder, he lacks the ability to create opportunities and execute effective passes.
Nevertheless, Havertz does exhibit a commendable ability to make well-timed runs into dangerous areas for finishing opportunities. Therefore, it becomes crucial for the new Chelsea boss to accurately define his role and utilize his talents effectively when they take charge in the summer.
N’Golo Kante: The DMF
While there are fans who firmly believe that N’Golo Kante should be a regular starter whenever he is fit, it is undeniable that he frequently faces challenges with staying fit in recent times.
In addition, there is a pressing requirement for a goal-scoring player, a dedicated defensive midfielder to partner with record signing Enzo Fernandez, and a goalkeeper who instills confidence within the backline.
