Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino said he is sure he will have a say in how the Premier League team strengthens its squad in January. He said this because he has “good communication” with the club’s management.
Before he was hired in May, the Argentine told the club that they needed to spend more on transfers to get better. Since a U.S.-led takeover in 2022, the club has already spent about 1 billion pounds ($1.27 billion) on new players.
Chelsea has won three straight league games at Stamford Bridge. This ends a run of bad home form that went back to their 12th-place finish last season. With 25 points from 19 games, they are now in 10th place.
“It’s obvious that the head coach, coach or manager is crazy to think he won’t be involved in any decisions for the future in my area,” Pochettino told reporters.
“Of course, we will share with the owners, the sporting director and I cannot conceive the idea of not being involved.”
Twelve players left West London on fixed deals, and eleven came in. Players like Moises Caicedo, Romeo Lavia, Christopher Nkunku, Cole Palmer, Nicolas Jackson, and Robert Sanchez left.
He said, “Yes, of course,” when asked if he thought this summer would be quieter than last. Not only is it my opinion, but it’s also how we talk to the owners and athletic directors.
“There is very good communication, we talk every single day and we will take decisions because we are all agreed.”
Chelsea next face promoted Luton Town at Kenilworth Road later on Saturday.
