Mauricio Pochettino’s new coaching job has finally been confirmed – though not at Chelsea
Auricio Pochettino’s latest managerial job has been confirmed but it’s not the one everyone was expecting.
The former Tottenham manager is understood to be putting the finishing touches on a three-year deal to become Chelsea’s next head coach. An official announcement is expected shortly.
It will be Pochettino’s first return to management since being sacked by Paris Saint-Germain at the end of last season…or so we thought.
In a surprise announcement, Pochettino has agreed to officiate World XI against England at Soccer Aid.
Stamford Bridge will have to wait as Old Trafford is set to host the June 11 benefit game for Unicef.
“I’m really looking forward to being part of Soccer Aid this year and leading the world squad,” said Pochettino.
“It’s a real pleasure to be part of a game that represents a major cultural moment in this country’s annual calendar – and rightly so, as it raises so much money for Unicef.
Mauricio Pochettino’s managerial career
“I love English football stadiums, the passion the fans have for the game and the atmosphere they create so it will be great to feel that again next month.”
Pochettino’s Argentine compatriots Gabriel Batistuta and Hernan Crespo will be part of the squad, while Usain Bolt is captain.
