Following on from the report at the beginning of the month regarding Pochettino knowing his job at Stamford Bridge is coming to an end, The Byline can today give an update on the search for a new manager perhaps taking its first steps.

At the start of the month, sources revealed to The Byline that Pochettino has not enjoyed his time at Chelsea, even putting results aside. Sources say the Argentine has not liked working with some specific people and the working relationship is described as “not good.”

When the formal search for Pochettino’s successor does begin, the new manager will be hired using a data driven approach, similar to how players & staff members have been recruited under the Todd Boehly/Clearlake ownership.

In regards to Sporting Lisbon manager, Rúben Amorim, he has internally been described as the “dream target” by some at Stamford Bridge.

Amorim currently sits 2nd in the league with Sporting, firmly in a title race with the Portuguese club. The Portuguese coach already has an attractive CV, winning the league whilst averaging over 2 points a game with an impressive win percentage.

With Chelsea’s unpredictability it is unknown whether Pochettino will see out the season but The Byline has been told that Behdad Eghbali is the biggest “roadblock” to Pochettino getting sacked before the season has finished.

Chelsea are still in the FA Cup and find themselves within reach of the European places in the Premier League.
