According to Cesc Fabregas, Mauricio Pochettino is a more than qualified candidate for the position of Chelsea manager.
According to him, the Argentine will be able to instill in young players a great deal of confidence that might be important for the team moving ahead, he told The Athletic.
After weeks of rumors that Pochettino was the only legitimate applicant for the position, it was eventually announced this week that he would be hired permanently.
He beat off rivals for the post, including Luis Enrique and Julian Nagelsmann, but he will now be fully aware of the scope of the undertaking.
Last season, the Blues finished in 12th place, and they need this appointment to go well to move up the standings.
Fabregas now supports Pochettino while also acknowledging that he wants to see Chelsea go back to their rightful place.
Fabregas supports pochettino’s achievement
I’ve never worked with him, but I’m sure you’ve heard of him, he said. I’ve had a few encounters with him while on vacation in Ibiza. Naturally, I played against him when he was at Spurs, and we’ve spoken after games. He appears to be a very calm, sensible man who inspires a lot of confidence in young players. He also appears to have an excellent organizational structure and a staff in whom he has a great deal of faith. I hope he’s the perfect person to put Chelsea back where they belong.
