Mauricio Pochettino is PSG's new coach

According to reports, Chelsea has a manager they would like to take over for Mauricio Pochettino right away.

Pochettino, a former manager of Tottenham Hotspur and Paris Saint-Germain, was named Blues manager in advance of the 23–24 season.

Chelsea has been playing far worse than expected even though they have spent a lot of money on players like Cole Palmer, Nicolas Jackson, and Moises Caicedo.

Chelsea was trounced 4-2 at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon by Wolverhampton Wanderers, following their midweek 4-1 loss to Liverpool.

Pochettino is therefore under more and more pressure to swiftly turn the team’s fortunes around. Nevertheless, rumours have it that Chelsea wants to move quickly and already has a replacement in mind.

Sport Zone claims that Chelsea wants to name Bayer Leverkusen manager Xabi Alonso right away.

Behdad Eghbali, a co-owner of Chelsea, is rumoured to have been impressed with the work Alonso has done with the German team, who are presently unbeaten and two points ahead of Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga.

In spite of this, Chelsea may have fierce competition from Liverpool, a Premier League team, for Alonso’s services. Liverpool is now looking for a replacement for Reds manager Jurgen Klopp, who is expected to leave at the end of the 23–24 season.

Many people believe that Alonso should replace Klopp at the end of the season because he played for Liverpool and developed a strong bond with the supporters.

Bayern may possibly enter the battle for the Spaniard because Thomas Tuchel is facing some pressure to help the Bavarian team win their 11th straight Bundesliga title.

Last month, Alonso stated, “To be honest I am not in this moment thinking about the next step. I am thinking about where I am right now and I think I am in a great place which I enjoy.

“I’m going to be happy if we play well and deserve to win. What’s going to happen in the future… I don’t know and I don’t really care at the moment.”
