Done deal as Chelsea complete signing of new manager, Mauricio Pochettino announcement in the next hour
Chelsea will confirm their new manager this week in the form of an official announcement, reports David Ornstein of The Athletic this morning.
It’s been a search that feels like it has gone on for a long time now, but it was always going to be what was being reported as ‘an exhaustive search’. But it looks like they have found their man and will soon be making an announcement, and that man is still expected to be former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino, with Ornstein describing him as the ‘strong favourite’ to take the role.
As you can see from his tweet below, Ornstein says the new man will collaborate with Frank Lampard and the current directors at the club before starting officially in the summer. Decision to come in the next days.
