BREAKING NEWS: ‘Tell him to pack his belongings and leave my club immediately, because I DO NOT TOLERATE LAZY players…I can’t be paying high salary on Him and not benefiting from Him’: Chelsea owner Todd Boehly has ordered Pochettino that they must sell £60 million Star as soon as possible or risk losing their jobs.

What a FLOP, He caused the Second and Last Goal

Mauricio Pochettino officially starts work as Chelsea head coach today. The former Tottenham boss returns to the Premier League after four years away, having spent some time in France with Paris Saint-Germain.

A lot of transfer work has already been done for the incoming Stamford Bridge boss, with Christopher Nkunku arriving from RB Leipzig. While that is the only signing, a number of players have left the club.

Tiemoue Bakayoko has been released, while Mateo Kovacic and Kai Havertz have been sold to Manchester City and Arsenal respectively – interesting decision selling to direct rivals.

Edouard Mendy, N’Golo Kante and Kalidou Koulibaly have all departed west London for Saudi Arabia, with Hakim Ziyech looking likely to join them, albeit there are complication over his move.

Mason Mount looks set to leave for Manchester United in a £60million deal, while Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Christian Pulisic, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Romelu Lukaku have all also been linked with an exit.

Thiago Silva criticised the size of the squad last season when he said: “The manager can only pick 11 from a squad of 30-something, that’s tough. Some can’t make the squad, we signed eight in January, we need to stop and put a strategy in place otherwise next season we could make the same mistakes.”

With six exits already confirmed and a number more likely to happen, the Chelsea fans’ demands of Pochettino are already being met by Todd Boehly and the board before the Argentinian has even started work.

football.london launched our Big Forum in the aftermath of the 2022/23 season, asking supporters what they felt needed to be done during the summer transfer window. One key question was: What is Pochettino’s first priority when he joins?

More than 50% of people responded that removing squad dead wood was the main priority, with ‘changing the culture’ the next most important thing for Pochettino to do, with 28% responding that way.

Pochettino starts work today and plenty of that so-called dead wood has already been dispensed with, meaning Boehly already knew what needed to be done, giving Pochettino the perfect start to life in west London.
