As the Blues get closer to hiring Enzo Maresca to replace Mauricio Pochettino as manager, Cole Palmer gives his assessment on Pochettino’s tenure at the helm

After last week’s shоcking departure оf Mauriciо Pоchettinо as manager оf Chelsea, Cоle Palmer has given his assessment оn Pоchettinо’s tenure.

The 52-year-old managed the Blues to a Premier League sixth-place finish and guaranteed a position in next season’s Europa Conference League, but he and the club nevertheless decided to part ways.

According to Mail Sport’s sources, Enzo Maresca is now among the front-runners to replace him as permanent Blues manager after his departure.

Mauricio Pochettino was under intense scrutiny during the 2023–24 season, but he rallied his team to win their last five league matches and finish in sixth place. The Telegraph reported that Pochettino and the club’s upper management had a falling out, despite the fact that he had turned things around at Chelsea. ‘Dismissive of the club’s directive to utilize set-piece experts,’ the Blues boss allegedly clashed with ownership over Chelsea’s ideology.

Palmer had a breakout season, scoring 27 goals (in all comPetitions) and registering 15 assists, under the tutelage of the former Tottenham and Paris Saint-Germain coach. Palmer, who was named the Premier League’s Young Player of the Season for his heroics in front of goal, spearheaded the tributes to the Argentine boss on social media following Pochettino’s departure.

To Gaffer, I am eternally grateful for all that you have done to help me realize my wildest ambitions. Wishing you the best,’ he wrote.

Palmer, a £42.5 million summer transfer from Manchester City to Chelsea, has blossomed into a Premier League sensation.
