Chelsea eyeing former PSG manager as Graham Potter replacement
Chelsea eye Mauricio Pochettino as a Graham Potter replacement
According to Fichajes (h/t Football. London), Chelsea have reportedly been linked with a move for former Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino if Graham Potter was to be given the axe.
his news has come as a surprise to many Chelsea fans, who are still reeling from their team’s disappointing performance this season. Chelsea currently sit in tenth place in the Premier League table, and it’s clear that the club is in need of some major changes.
The appointment of Graham Potter was supposed to bring some stability to the team. But unfortunately, Potter has failed to live up to expectations. Despite significant investment in the transfer windows, Potter has failed to get the best out of his squad.
Mauricio Pochettino, on the other hand, is a proven manager who has had success in the Premier League. He took Tottenham to the Champions League final in 2019, and his style of play is well-suited to the English game.
Pochettino is a disciplinarian who demands hard work and commitment from his players, and he is not afraid to make tough decisions when needed. If Chelsea were to bring in Pochettino, it would be a bold move but it could also be the right move for a team that is struggling to find its identity.
Pochettino has a track record of developing young players, which would be a major advantage for a club like Chelsea that is known for its academy. He also has a very young and talented squad to work with here.
It remains to be seen whether Potter can turn things around at Stamford Bridge in the coming months and help the Blues secure Champions League qualification. Missing out on Champions League football would be a devastating blow for a club like Chelsea.
If Chelsea do decide to bring in Pochettino, it would be a sign that the club is serious about turning things around. However, it’s important to remember that Pochettino is not a quick fix. He would need time to implement his ideas and get the team playing the way he wants.

Potter must be given some time to implement his plans. However, if Chelsea decide to pull the plug on his time as the Blues boss, Pochettino is not a very bad option. However, the Blues would be wiser off looking at managers better suited than the former Tottenham boss who did have trouble handling the big names during his time at PSG, which is the last club he managed before being on the free agent market.
