Chelsea appoints Mauricio Pochettino as new head coach

    Chelsea are reportedly close to appointing Mauricio Pochettino as manager.

    According to various media reports on Saturday night, the Blues have agreed terms with the former Tottenham boss.

    At the end of the season, the 51-year-old Argentine will take over from interim manager Frank Lampard.

    There has been no confirmation from the club. PA news agency contacted Chelsea.

    Chelsea are looking for a new full-time manager after sacking Graham Potter due to poor form just seven months before his five-year deal in April.

    Lampard, who previously managed the club from 2019-21, has been brought in on a temporary basis but the team’s struggles continue as they sit 11th in the Premier League.

    Pochettino, who led Tottenham to the Champions League final in 2019 before being sacked later that year, is available after leaving PSG last summer.
