Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright has expressed confidence that Mauricio Pochettino will be able to turn around Chelsea’s fortunes. Pochettino, who has previously managed Tottenham Hotspur, Southampton and Paris Saint-Germain, has signed a three-year contract to become Chelsea’s sixth permanent manager in just five years. Despite the club having spent almost £600m on new signings since last year, they finished just 12th in the Premier League this season, closer to the relegation zone than the Champions League places. Wright believes that Pochettino only needs two signings in his first transfer window in charge: a new goalkeeper and striker. Chelsea’s current shot-stoppers, Kepa Arrizabalaga and Edouard Mendy, have both struggled in west London, while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is set to leave Stamford Bridge and Romelu Lukaku is pushing for a permanent transfer from Chelsea. Wright also suggested that Pochettino needs to cut the squad down and bring in some quality, but added that Chelsea fans should be excited about the new manager because he will “sort this out”.
