Mauricio Pochettino expressed great admiration for Chelsea’s training ground upon his arrival as the club’s new manager. In an official interview, he emphasized his desire for the facility to feel like a home for the players.
Yesterday marked the beginning of Pochettino’s tenure as Chelsea manager, and there is much work to be done to prepare for the upcoming season. Throughout this week, players will start to return to the club and have the opportunity to demonstrate their worth to the Argentine coach.
After finishing in 12th place last season, it is evident that some players will not have a future at the club. Pochettino will need to work diligently on the training ground to ensure that the squad understands his preferred style of play, which has often involved a back four.
Pochettino expressed his astonishment at the prestigious Cobham complex, stating, “It’s a fantastic, really nice training ground. The most important thing is for players and staff to feel that it is our home. It’s not just a place for work, but a place where we can feel at home.”
Creating a positive and welcoming atmosphere is a shared responsibility, and Pochettino is fully committed to fostering an environment where everyone is happy to work.
Now, it is time for the hard work to commence as the players prepare for what is likely to be an intense start to pre-season in the coming days.
