Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham)’s old mentor Mauricio Pochettino has returned to the Premier League with Chelsea at the helm.
Chelsea said on its website and other official channels on the 29th (Korean time), “We are delighted that Pochettino will take over as Chelsea manager from the start of the 2023-2024 season.” It has an option for a one-year extension.” It’s like a 2+1 year contract.
Argentinian coach Pochettino started his coaching career at Espanyol (2009-2012). After that, coach Pochettino, who went through Southampton (2013-2014), led Tottenham for five years from 2014.
In particular, coach Pochettino led Tottenham to second place in the Premier League in the 2016-2017 season and runner-up in the UEFA Champions League in the 2018-2019 season, making him one of the world’s best coaches. Coach Pochettino took charge of Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and won Ligue 1, Coupe de France and Trophy des Champions.
With Pochettino taking charge of Chelsea, it is expected that competition with Tottenham, which has his favorite pupils Son Heung-min and Harry Kane, will be inevitable. Next season, the Premier League is expected to spark even more.스포츠토토
“Mauricio’s experience, standard of excellence, leadership qualities and competitive drive will help Chelsea Football Club as they move forward,” explained Chelsea co-chairs Lawrence Stewart and Paul Winstanley.
“He is a winning manager who has worked at the highest level across multiple leagues and languages. His spirit, tactical approach and dedication to development all make him an outstanding candidate.”
