Chelsea repeat Rafa Benitez after Todd Boehly pulls plug on Mauricio Pochettino.

It has been suggested that Chelsea should abandon their plans to hire Mauricio Pochettino as their next permanent head coach and choose someone else instead. Jamie O’Hara, a former midfielder for Tottenham, believes that Mauricio Pochettino has unfinished business at Spurs and that his time as manager of Chelsea would proceed in a similar direction as Rafa Benitez’s time at Everton.

Pochettino is currently the clear favorite to take over permanently for Graham Potter as the head coach of Tottenham Hotspur. According to the latest reports, an agreement might be announced within the next week.

After suffering their fifth straight loss against Brentford on Wednesday, Chelsea are in dire need of a change in their luck; yet, it seems unlikely that Mauricio Pochettino will take over as manager of Chelsea until the summer. Due to the fact that he worked for rivals Tottenham for five and a half years, there are some Blues fans who are opposed to the concept of his appointment.

O’Hara cannot believe that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has not made an effort to hire Mauricio Pochettino despite the fact that Spurs are also looking for a new manager. The commentator believes that the 51-year-old will not be successful if he assumes managerial responsibilities at Chelsea.
O’Hara said on sports dias “Don’t even get me started. Pochettino is on his way to take over the team. That is not going to be successful. It is not going to be successful. It won’t be successful. He belonged in the Tottenham squad.

“There is business that needs to be finished. Only because Daniel Levy is a moron and he doesn’t want to go back on old ground because they had a falling out when he left is the only reason he won’t go back there.

“Levy is to blame for this. [He is doomed to fail at Chelsea] because to the fact that he is a Spurs. He is known as Spurs. It is not going to be successful.”

According to O’Hara, there are many parallels to the time when Benitez took over as manager of Everton. After leading Liverpool to victory in the Champions League in 2005, the Spaniard is held in high regard by the fans of Liverpool’s Merseyside rivals, Everton.
