Each member of Mauricio Pochettino’s backroom staff, with whom he has a tight relationship, will play a crucial part in helping Chelsea turn around its fortunes over the course of the summer and beyond.
The appointment of Mauricio Pochettino as the new Chelsea manager is imminent, and he will take charge during the preseason. A core group of personnel that the Argentine coach has previously worked with is joining him.

The 51-year-old former PSG and Tottenham manager is renowned for negotiating his staff members’ contracts before his own. He also has a tight relationship with the coaches who have worked for him, with one of them even being his son. Pochettino has kept the group together in more permanent housing and shared hotels to establish a strong bond as they work to elevate the team they are leading to the top.
Sebastiano Pochettino, Toni Jimenez, Miguel D’Agostino, and Jesus Perez are all expected to join the Blues as employees. Football. London examines what each might offer.
Pochettino’s right-hand guy, Jesus Perez Given his attendance at press conferences, support of the head coach, and active participation in guiding players through warm-ups and delivering half-time analysis to players, Perez may be the most visible member of Pochettino’s staff.
Former Spurs player Matt Lovell has characterized Perez as “lovely” but “fierce,” and the coach is reported to be meticulous in his knowledge of people. Perez, like the other coaches, has a tight relationship with Pochettino and has previously worked extensively with sports science staff to customize particular pre-season programs.
While the majority of the group went on to have successful professional playing careers, Perez chose a different path. He first majored in sports science at university before making the transition from non-league football to La Liga. He has held positions as a fitness coach, general coach, and even an academy director in the past. He was also hired by Espanyol to work in their analysis department.

Miguel D’Agostino – Pochettino and D’Agostino were teammates at Newell’s Old Boys until the latter transitioned from scouting to assisting with player analysis to join his old teammate’s coaching staff at Espanyol. The 51-year-old has previously worked closely with players while giving Pochettino some technical support.
Toni Jimenez, the goalie coach, is known for his idiosyncrasies and occasional on-field outbursts but has been a huge asset to Pochettino ever since his first coaching position at Espanyol. Pochettino and Jimenez were teammates at Espanyol, where Jimenez also earned his coaching certification. Pochettino will take over as manager of Chelsea soon.
The goalkeeper coach, who also played for Atletico Madrid, Elche, and Espanyol during his playing days, assisted Spain in winning the Olympic gold medal in the 1992 Games. Before returning to Espanyol as the goalkeeper coach, he originally served as a coach with Girona FC. He later worked as Pochettino’s assistant at each of his subsequent clubs.

“Important proposal” – Chelsea ‘prepare for’ departure of player this summer

Sebastiano Pochettino is the only person in this group who did not work with Pochettino at Espanyol, although that is understandable considering that he joined Spurs when he was only 22 and was hired as a first-team sports scientist and fitness coach in 2016. He worked at PSG with his father as a fitness coach, and it appears that he will be crucial to helping Chelsea resolve its physical problems.
