Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that he has matured a lot as a head coach.
The Argentine has always been revered for his tactics and ability to improve young players.
However, Pochettino has sometimes been accused of being overly emotional with respect to results and in-game incidents.
“My balance is much better than 10 years ago,” the Argentine stated about how he copes with setbacks, per the club website.
“I am more mature now and I try to keep calm. I hope my wife is happy with my behavior now!
“The coaching staff are also more mature. We are not affected too much emotionally, unlike in the past.
“Even when we win we keep calm, and when the team is not so good, we keep calm also, to try to identify the best solution for the future.”
Pochettino and his wife Karina Grippaldi have two sons, Sebastiano and Maurizio. Sebastiano was Tottenham’s first team sports scientist. Maurizio was granted a contract with Tottenham’s development squad, scoring his first goal for the under-18 side against Norwich City in October 2018.
In early December, he made his debut for the under-23s against VfL Wolfsburg. In January 2021, Maurizio signed for Watford.
Pochettino believes in “energía universal” (English: universal energy), the idea that people, places and things are charged with a hidden energy, positive or negative. “I believe in energía universal”, he said. “It is connected. Nothing happens for causality. It is always a consequence [of something else]. Maybe, it is one of the reasons that Harry [Kane] always scores in derbies. I believe in that energy. For me, it exists”.
