Pochettino will return to Chelsea next month after sack


Mauricio Pochettino will make a short return to Stamford Bridge, a few weeks after leaving his role as Chelsea manager.

Chelsea announced Pochettino’s departure on Tuesday, but the 52-years-old will return to the Bridge next month to manage the World XI team in the annual Soccer Aid charity game.

As manager, Pochettino led the team to a sixth-place finish in the Premier League, securing five consecutive victories at the end of the season.

Although the relationship between him and the club was terminated mutually, however, disagreements with co-owners Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali over player transfers led to an irreconcilable split.

The Argentine coach will be returning to Stamford Bridge alongside his coaching team, including Jesus Perez, Miguel d’Agostino, Toni Jimenez, and his son Sebastiano Pochettino, have also left Chelsea.

Pochettino will play against former Chelsea manager Frank Lampard, who will manage the England team alongside Harry Redknapp and Robbie Williams for the charity match.

The charity match brings football legends and celebrities together to raise funds for UNICEF.
