Chelsea has a new manager after waiting for more than two months. The owners spent their time in recent weeks concluding the deal for Pochettino after moving quickly to hire Graham Potter. After a year of errors and mistakes, there was nothing left to play for on the field, so the only thing that mattered was doing the next part right.
In the announcement appointing the Argentine as the new head coach, Todd Boehly, Behdad Eghbali, Jose E. Feliciano, Mark Walter, and Hansjorg Wyss noted, “The sporting team conducted a diligent and thoughtful process that the Board is proud of.” Lessons have been learned with two managers in place.
The statement said, “Pochettino is a coach known for his teams’ high-energy and eye-catching style and he has established a reputation for assisting young players in realizing their full potential within a strong squad ethos.
“He is a successful coach with experience at the highest levels, in numerous leagues, and in other languages. He was the ideal candidate due to his ethos, tactical strategy, and dedication to growth.
The rationale given in writing by Laurence Stewart and Paul Winstanley for choosing Pochettino to manage Chelsea Football Club was that “Mauricio’s experience, standards of excellence, leadership qualities, and character will serve Chelsea Football Club well as we move forward.”
