According to journalist Julian Laurens, Mauricio Pochettino has made it clear to Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly that he should stop making regular visits to the dressing room when Pochettino takes charge of the team next season. Boehly’s recent visit to the Chelsea dressing room with fellow co-owner Behdad Eghbali caused quite a stir after the team’s defeat to Brighton a couple of weeks ago, and Boehly reportedly gave a speech describing the situation as “embarrassing.”
It remains to be seen whether Boehly and Eghbali will respect Pochettino’s wishes, as they have been very hands-on with their approach since the takeover. While they may want to avoid unnecessary attention, they have also shown a desire to be involved directly with the team. However, Pochettino’s stance on the matter is understandable, as a manager needs to be able to manage his team without interference from outside sources.
In conclusion, while Boehly’s recent visit to the Chelsea dressing room may have caused a stir, it is heartening to see that Pochettino is already taking steps to ensure that he has full control over the team when he takes charge. This bodes well for the team’s future, as a strong and decisive manager is essential for success.
