Raheem Sterling has spoken with Mauricio Pochettino about what he expects from the future Chelsea boss. My most recent favorite
Chelsea player Raheem Sterling has underlined the attributes he feels the club’s future manager would need to be successful. The Blues are looking for their third permanent manager in the last year, having fired Thomas Tuchel and Graham Potter.
The hierarchy has gone through a comprehensive process, and at this point, Mauricio Pochettino looks to be the favorite to accept the job. According to football. London, there is still nothing to announce on an imminent agreement between the Blues and Pochettino, even though the two parties have had a lot of productive meetings and are confident that a deal can be achieved.
To be a success under Pochettino, Sterling has listed a few characteristics he must possess upon joining the club. “I think the organization is the most important thing,” the winger told Football Daily. Having a boss who, you know, has the last word on everything, does things his way, and everyone has to obey him. I believe that great teams always have a manager who comes in, provides his blueprint, and everyone follows, and if some don’t follow, they aren’t part of the team. “I think that’s how brutal it needs to be at a high level because it’s the fine line between winning, coming in second, and being in the position we’re in right now.”So it’s a case of everyone being on the same page. So that’s not my advice, but rather my experience.”

Given Sterling’s difficult start at the club, it remains to be seen if one of those difficult decisions may be related to his future at Stamford Bridge. He battled once again against Arsenal and received some criticism, as did Frank Lampard, who shared his feelings.
“It was a tough game for Raheem and Joao Felix,” Lampard commented after the game. “The lads of got a lot of work with the defensive system we played.” Their greatest danger is counter-attacking and protecting the ball. We had a terrible night at the top of the pitch. Joao is a huge talent, as is Raheem, and I’m not here to bash them. We’ll go away and look at it.”
It remains to be seen what the future holds for both the club and Sterling, as the club faces some difficult decisions across the board.
