Former Tottenham coach, Mauricio Pochettino has agreed a deal with Chelsea to be their next head coach.
The 51-year-old, who is set to return to the Premier League after being sacked by Chelsea’s London rivals Spurs in November 2019, will take over from caretaker manager Frank Lampard at the end of this season.
Pochettino will permanently succeed Graham Potter, who was dismissed at the start of April after less than seven months in the coaching position.
Despite spending a whooping £600m in the last two transfer windows, Chelsea are in the bottom half of the Premier League and will end the season without a trophy, while they will also not play in European competition next season.
Pochettino has been out of work since being sacked by Paris Saint-Germain last summer after 18 months as coach of the French side, having guided them to the Ligue 1 title in 2022 and the French Cup the year before.
The ex-Espanyol boss managed Spurs for five years from May 2014 but failed to win a trophy at the north London club. Follow us on Instagram @sofovilla | Follow us on Twitter @sofovilla | Like our page on Facebook via @sofovillamedia
