It was not a return to Tottenham. He contacted Chelsea, the club in the same hometown.
British media ‘Sky Sports’ said on the 21st (Korean time), 메이저사이트 “Chelsea had an interview with Mauricio Pochettino as manager. Pochettino has recently received manager offers from several teams, but he rejected them all. Real Madrid also approached Pochettino. “Chelsea has been observing Pochettino for a long time. Even when they sacked Thomas Tuchel last summer, they considered Pochettino as a potential candidate.”
Pochettino has been living as a barbarian since stepping down as PSG (Paris Saint-Germain) manager last year. There were a few teams that called out, but it was not materialized until the seniority.
Then, when Tottenham sacked Antonio Conte, rumors of a return circulated strongly. Pochettino was manager at Tottenham from 2014 to 2019.
He grew up Son Heung-min and Harry Kane now and led them to runner-up in the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League. Unlike Conte, who had a lot of conflict with the squad, Pochettino had a good relationship with the players. It was also a strength that left a clear result except for the championship.
However, a return to Tottenham has become a non-event. Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy drew the line. It is known that there are quite a few voices opposing the return of Pochettino among the forces inside the club.
Chelsea did not miss their chance. I just dumped Graham Potter and was looking for a new director.
He has already met Luis Enrique and Julian Nagelsmann in person to discuss the director’s intentions. This time I hurriedly met Pochettino.
So far, Pochettino is one of several candidates, but the possibility of appointment is quite high. Chelsea are expected to finish this season with interim manager Frank Lampard and make a final decision after the season ends.
