Chelsea new manager expects results from day one
Newly appointed manager Mauricio Pochettino has emphasized the need for Chelsea to deliver right from the start, as there is no room for patience in football. The 51-year-old former Tottenham boss has signed a two-year contract with the option of a third at Stamford Bridge.
After a tumultuous 2022-23 season that saw three different managers and a disappointing 12th-place finish in the league, Pochettino is determined to turn things around swiftly.
“At this point, it’s all about immediate results,” Pochettino stated during his unveiling. “We cannot afford to tell people that we require six months to build something.”
Addressing the media at his first press conference held at Stamford Bridge, Pochettino further commented, “I have had productive discussions with the owners. They are astute individuals, and I have a positive feeling about our collaboration. As a coach, I do not seek to assert authority; instead, I aim to earn their trust.”
He concluded by saying, “My primary objective is to demonstrate to the owners that they can have faith in me, while also instilling confidence in the players and the fans with my decisions and our operational methods.”
