New manager Mauricio Pochettino won’t let Chelsea’s 2022-23 English Premier League campaign negatively affect the 2023-24 campaign.

Chelsea ended the 2022-23 EPL in 12th position with 11 wins, 11 losses and 16 defeats. Pochettino has since taken over from Chelsea interim manager Frank Lampard.

What Mauricio Pochettino said

“I am not affected by the past because I wasn’t here,” Pochettino told ESPN.

“I started July 1. Of course, for us with the people that we met and the players, we try to create a good atmosphere and work hard to try to reach the level that we want.

“And then altogether to create the philosophy that we believe it is possible to create together, and to try to bring this football club back to what people expect.”

Midfielder Mason Mount and winger Christian Pulisic have left Chelsea for Manchester United and AC Milan, respectively, since Pochettino’s appointment.

“Chelsea Football Club is about winning, to lift trophies; this is what we want for the future. We are working really hard because we need to prepare all the players to be ready to compete in the first game in the Premier League,” added Pochettino.

“Then we see what happens. There are too many things going on, not only with us but with different clubs like Liverpool also.”

Pochettino has previously worked with Tottenham Hotspur in the EPL and, more recently, Paris Saint-Germain in the French Ligue 1.
