Graham Potter, the manager of Chelsea F.C., is facing criticism for his recent performance, and Mauricio Pochettino is expected to take over in his stead.
Chelsea want Mauricio Pochettino to replace Graham Potter, an extremely ambitious managerial move that will undoubtedly enrage Tottenham fans.
According to a source, Todd Boehly wants the Argentinian to take over at Stamford Bridge and, despite his relationship with London rivals Spurs, he would be open to an offer.
Pochettino reportedly still owns a home in London, despite leaving the city in 2019 after being fired as manager of the Lilywhites, just months after leading them to their first-ever Champions League final.
The Sun recently reported that Chelsea’s hierarchy is considering parting ways with Potter just four months into his tenure as Blues manager, despite only four league wins since his appointment. Since his appointment, the team has only recorded four league wins.
Although it appears that Potter is being given time, he has had to manage a team that is plagued by injuries, and there is immediate pressure to show real progress. Away fans were yelling out Thomas Tuchel’s name during Chelsea’s FA Cup third-round loss to Manchester City.

Pochettino, meanwhile, has not been actively coaching since he left Paris Saint-Germain at the conclusion of the previous campaign. The 50-year-old won three awards while in charge of the French powerhouses and guided them to the Champions League semifinals.
After stints at Tottenham and Southampton, returning to England would represent a third time playing in the Premier League. Additionally, in the past, he has frequently been connected to Manchester United.
Potter has linked his early troubles in west London to those of Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, Mikel Arteta at Arsenal, and Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool. He has also suggested that recent acquisition Joao Felix would be in position to play this week against Fulham
🔵 Graham Potter on Joao Felix: "He's been training regularly and had game time, so physically he can go in. There's a little unknown with the adaptation period, it can be case-by-case. I see a confident player, who can impose himself, make the difference in the final third." "He is a nice addition and I'm really looking forward to working with him." #CFC
