Chelsea is likely to sack current football manager Graham Potter at the end of the season and is eyeing Mauricio Pochettino as a potential replacement.
As previously reported, Chelsea’s board will continue to support current manager Graham Potter in overcoming the current turmoil of the team.
The Blues have only won 2 out of their last 14 games across all competitions, with the majority of fans calling for Potter’s sacking after just 5 months on the job. Will Graham Potter be the next manager to be sacked this Premier League season?
However, according to the Daily Express, the English manager is almost certain to be sacked by Chelsea at the end of the current season.
The board is reportedly “keeping the seat warm” for Potter only because the team no longer has any targets to strive for in the Premier League and has been knocked out of both domestic competitions.
During this time, the Stamford Bridge club will look for talented managers to replace Potter.
According to the source, Mauricio Pochettino is a strong candidate to take over the hot seat at Stamford Bridge if Graham Potter is sacked as football manager at the end of the season.
The Argentine coach has expressed his desire to return to work in the Premier League and is ready to lead Chelsea if he receives a suitable offer.
Pochettino became unemployed in June last year after being sacked by PSG. Despite leading the Parisian team to an easy Ligue 1 title, disappointing results in the Champions League with superstars in the lineup like Messi, Neymar, and Mbappe led to his dismissal.
However, Chelsea’s owners still believe Pochettino has the ability to help the team out of their crisis.
The 1972-born coach had a memorable five-and-a-half year at Tottenham, helping the team progress and become a formidable force in English football.
Pochettino also contributed to discovering talented young players, exemplified by his trust in and promotion of players like Harry Kane and Deli Alli.
