Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino

“I genuinely think there has been dialogue”- Jamie Redknapp makes bold prediction on Mauricio Pochettino’s Chelsea future

Mauricio Pochettino’s Chelsea future hangs in the balance.

Jamie Redknapp says Chelsea have held talks with Mauricio Pochettino

Jamie Redknapp thinks Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino has received a positive signal from Chelsea owners regarding staying at Stamford Bridge next season. The Blues have once again endured a below-par campaign and there were clouds over Pochettino’s future at the club. However, there has been a recent upturn in form for the Stamford Bridge outfit.

They have won three of three back-to-back league games and are currently in seventh position, tied on points with sixth-placed Newcastle United. Redknapp reckons that the club’s hierarchy has also held talks with Pochettino and the Argentine has received a positive vibe, judging by his change in mood. He said (via Blue_Footy on X):

“Having spoken to Mauricio [Pochettino] two weeks ago, when they beat Tottenham, he was prickly. I saw a sense he was a little bit angry, probably doesn’t feel like he’s got the support of the owners. But I feel in this time, in these two weeks, there has been dialogue.”

Redknapp added:

“That’s the most upbeat I have seen him. He spoke about next season about what’s going to happen, having players available. So I genuinely think there has been dialogue that’s been very positive for Mauricio, and I think next year, he will be the manager by the look of it.”

Chelsea have shown improvements not only in results but also in their playing style in recent games. They have earned big-margin wins against West Ham United (5-0) and Tottenham Hotspur (2-0) in recent games. The progress shows that the team are heading in the right direction under Pochettino.

Jamie Redknapp says Mauricio Pochettino deserves time at Chelsea

Jamie Redknapp has claimed that Mauricio Pochettino deserves more time at Chelsea. He claimed that the Argentine is finally putting the pieces together of the puzzle at Stamford Bridge. He further added that changing managers rapidly is not the right way to go. He said (via the aforementioned source):

“I think it would be crazy not to do that. I think you’ve got a lot of young players there that need a little bit of guidance, and a bit of time. I certainly think he’s the right man. I just don’t think it’s the answer to just go and get, change and chop and get another manager.”

Chelsea defeated Nottingham Forest 3-2 on the road in their most recent game. The Blues return to action on May 19 to play Bournemouth in a Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge.
