Coach Mauricio Pochettino is said to have reached an agreement to lead Chelsea from the 2023/24 season. Negotiations between the Argentine military leader and owner Todd Boehly were completed a few days ago. Because he is still tied to a contract with PSG until the end of June, the London team will wait until July to sign Pochettino. British media revealed that the 51-year-old strategist’s contract with the London team has a term of 3 years.
Pochettino’s talent is untested. He once resonated when leading Tottenham to the Champions League final in the 2018/19 season. He also once led PSG to win Ligue 1… Theoretically, with his command of the army, the Argentine strategist can revive Chelsea, to help the London team reap the titles. brand. But it is also possible that he will soon fail at Stamford Bridge and be kicked out by boss Boehly while the 2023/24 season is still going on.
Thomas Tuchel is also very good. Even the German strategist is superior to Pochettino with the achievement of leading Chelsea to win the Champions League in the 2020/21 season and with PSG to win the Ligue 1 twice… Graham Potter is not exactly incompetent. The proof is that he was very successful when he led Brighton and turned this team into a phenomenon in the English Premier League. But they were both unsuccessful in the 2022/23 season and all shared the same fate of being kicked out of Stamford Bridge.
That’s because Tuchel, especially Coach Potter, had his talent lost by boss Boehly. Since holding Chelsea, the American billionaire has made many impulsive decisions. He shopped without consulting the coach, buying according to his liking and as if to show the level of a player. In the 2022/23 season alone, Boehly spent more than 600 million euros on player purchases. However, the position that needs to be strengthened most at Stamford Bridge is not noticed by the big boss of the London team. Boehly ignored pleas from coach Tuchel and later Potter about Chelsea’s need for a top-class striker.
Because of not being able to convince Boehly, coach Tuchel had reactions, leading to his being sent straight out of Stamford Bridge. And Potter patiently stayed and endured, accepting the American boss to interfere in every corner of expertise. In particular, Boehly almost every match appeared in the Chelsea dressing room. Before the game, he told the players to kick this, kick that, making Mr. Potter a scarecrow. And after the game, when the London team did not perform well, Boehly burst into the dressing room and yelled at the players, saying that they did not play well for the money he invested. Of course, Coach Potter is not immune to criticism.
Owner Boehly of course has enthusiasm and ambition to turn Chelsea into a powerhouse of English football in particular and European football in general. But enthusiasm plus ignorance equals destruction. As a business man who doesn’t understand football like him, it is a disaster to decide everything for the coach, from buying players to choosing a team to play. In this regard, Boehly should probably review the way Chelsea’s former owner Roman Abramovich works and learn. The Russian billionaire is also a payer. But he only splashed money under the advice of the sports director as well as the coach and especially never went to the team’s dressing room.
Only in the 2022/23 season, the Chelsea coach seat has 4 people sitting on it, currently the interim coach Frank Lampard. But the London capital team replaced, but could not transform, if the owner Boehly was still alone, still arbitrarily interfering in professional work and turning the coaches at Stamford Bridge into compensation. look. Therefore, Pochettino’s future at Chelsea is extremely uncertain. He will not be able to do anything, if next season is constantly bothered by Boehly and gets in the way with the instructions of a person who likes to talk about expertise, but his knowledge of football is almost zero.
Of course, when negotiating with Chelsea, coach Pochettino may have made some specific requirements related to his job. But that’s the deal, and Boehly’s boss’s personality is very difficult to change. Surely there will be times when the Argentine strategist is put in a bad situation by the American billionaire like what his previous colleagues have had to go through.
Recently, Boehly admitted the mistake of firing coach Tuchel. Hopefully he knows how to look at it to draw lessons, thereby dealing better with the coach of the London capital team next season. Otherwise, Pochettino may soon become a new victim of the American billionaire!
