Mauricio Pochettino was previously in charge of Tottenham Hotspur before being let go in November 2019. He then went on to manage Paris Saint-Germain but left last summer and has been without a club since then. The Argentine manager will be returning to the Premier League after his stint at PSG.

The news of Pochettino’s appointment is a relief for Chelsea fans eagerly awaiting updates on their team’s coaching situation. With his vast experience and proven track record, he is expected to lead Chelsea towards greater success.

Pochettino will take over from Frank Lampard at the end of this season, once his role as caretaker manager comes to an end. This means that Lampard still has some time left in charge before handing over the reins to Pochettino.
