Mauricio Pochettino’s head appointment is imminent after he signed his Chelsea contract.

The 51-year-old has now signed his three-year contract after agreeing terms with Chelsea earlier this month to succeed Graham Potter, who was sacked less than seven months after replacing Thomas Tuchel in September 2022.

Pochettino will be joined by Jesus Perez, Miguel D’Agostino, Toni Jimenez and his son Sebastiano, who will make up his backroom staff at Chelsea.

An announcement is now imminent and a timeline of when the Argentine could be formally confirmed has been revealed.

So when will Mauricio Pochettino be formally confirmed as Chelsea’s new head coach?

As reported by Matt Law of the Daily Telegraph on Sunday, ‘Chelsea are set to make a formal announcement on Pochettino’s arrival in the next 48 hours’ following the final day draw to Newcastle United.

Pochettino will begin to work with his players, who will now head off on their post-season holidays, once pre-season commences in July. However, planning ahead of the squad’s return and transfer market dealings will begin immediately.

What have Chelsea players said about Mauricio Pochettino’s arrival?

Noni Madueke, who was signed from PSV in January, is the first player to accidentally confirm the Argentine’s appointment. He is excited by the prospect of working with the former Spurs and PSG boss, telling Chelsea to go back to the basics and get behind the new boss.

He said: “I think he is a good manager. He has been in big places around the world and he was a great success in the Premier League. I am looking forward to working with and learning from him.”

The 21-year-old added: “I think next season we need to go back to basics. The new manager needs to come in and everyone needs to get behind him in training for him and Chelsea to be successful and there’s no reason why we can’t be with the talent in his squad.”
