Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have spent the last few months debating who could become their next manager in the summer, as they work their way through barrel after barrel at the bar, and the latest link has upset rival supporters.
The Independent states Chelsea have added Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino to their short-list, after being impressed by Spurs’ rise this season and Pochettino’s use of young, English stars.
Former Southampton boss Pochettino has flourished since moving to White Hart Lane and he’s on course to lead Spurs into the Champions League for the first-time since the 2009/10 season; where Gareth Bale captured the limelight with a hat-trick against Inter Milan.
Whether Pochettino would consider moving across London remains to be seen but Chelsea have added him to their short-list, with the Argentine joining compatriot Diego Simeone, Juventus boss Antonio Conte and former Chile manager Jorge Sampaoli as potential bosses.
Our landlord believes Chelsea’s interest in Pochettino is understandable but he can’t see him leaving his post in North London, especially with Champions League football likely next term.
