The Argentine coach Mauricio Pochettino will take care of Chelsea FC of the English Premier League from this summer and will occupy the bench of Stamford Bridge the two upcoming seasons, with the option of a third reserved by the club, which will not give continuity to the interim Frank Lampard.

“Chelsea FC are pleased to confirm that Mauricio Pochettino he will be the coach of the men's team from the start of the 2023/24 season. The Argentine will begin his new role on July 1, 2023 with a two-year contract, with a club option for one more year," the London club announced.

Pochettino, 51 years old, He had been without a team since July of last year, when he saw his stage at the Paris Saint-Germain from Ligue 1. Previously he was in charge of tottenham hotspur English, between 2014 and 2019 and a season and a half in the Southampton, between January 2013 and June 2014, so he knows the Premier well.

The statement from the London club adds:

A coach known for the energy and colorful flair of his teams, he has built a reputation for helping young players reach their full potential in strong team spirit.

Chelsea's co-sporting directors, Laurence Stewart and Paul Winstanley, ensured that the experience of Pochettino, who started out as a technician at the RCD Espanyol between 2009 and 2012, as well as his "standards of excellence and leadership qualities" will be of use to Chelsea.

He is a winning coach, who has worked at the highest level, in multiple leagues and languages. His ethics, his tactical approach and his commitment to his development make him an exceptional candidate.

Chelsea owners, with Todd Boehley at the head, together Behdad Eghbali, José E. Feliciano, Mark Walter and Hansjörg Wyss, They were of the opinion that the work of selecting Pochettino as a new manager was "diligent and thoughtful", adding that the Council is "proud".

The 51-year-old coach, who won Ligue 1, the Cup and the French Super Cup with PSG, will arrive in London accompanied by Jesus Perez, Miguel d'Agostino, Toni Jimenez and Sebastiano Pochettino, members of the coaching staff who will take charge of Chelsea from July 1.

Pochettino will take over from Frank Lampard, Chelsea idol as a player who finished the season as coach, in his second term as such, albeit on an interim basis, without being able to convince the Council of his continuity.

All this in a season that also engulfed the technicians Thomas Tuchelwho left in early September, and Graham Potter, fired in April this year. Lampard, who in 2021 closed his first stage as a coach, could not improve the situation of a Chelsea that ended in the l12th place overall in the Premier League, outside of the European tournaments.
