Mauricio Pochettino has been hired by Chelsea as the team’s new head coach after Todd Boehly fired Graham Potter earlier this season due to a string of unsuccessful games.
During their time working together in the French capital, Mauricio Pochettino discussed the Premier League with Kylian Mbappe, the star forward for Paris Saint-Germain. According to football. London, the Argentine has reached an agreement to take over as Chelsea’s next head coach before the 2023–24 season.
Since Pochettino left PSG after they won the Ligue 1 championship at the end of the 2021–2022 season, he has been without a position. After firing Thomas Tuchel, Todd Boehly initially thought about hiring the 51-year-old but ultimately chose Graham Potter.
Pochettino now appears to be in line to take over at Stamford Bridge after weeks of productive negotiations. Frank Lampard will serve as his assistant until the handover after the 2022–23 season. This summer, Chelsea is planning another roster revamp and has been connected to players like Neymar and Lionel Messi.
In the past, Pochettino has revealed parts of their chats, saying they speak in three languages — French, English, and Spanish — and that the 24-year-old frequently inquires about the Premier League. In 2021, Pochettino told The Guardian that Kylian “loves football and he loves to talk about football.”
He inquires about England, inquiring as to how the culture, game, and mentality are there. Despite being only 22, he exudes maturity, talent confidence, and openness. “He can speak French, of course, but also flawless English and Spanish. I converse with him in both English and Spanish, though more so in English. “I told him the other day that I needed to practice speaking French with him to get better at it, but he responded, “Sure, but I should chat in English. He enjoys using many languages.
