Florent Malouda, former Chelsea star, insists that Jose Mourinho is the sole obvious choice to replace the under-pressure Mauricio Pochettino.

Under mounting pressure in recent weeks due to a lackluster debut season at Stamford Bridge, Mauricio Pochettino finds himself in a challenging position. Chelsea, currently positioned 11th in the Premier League. Meanwhile, he suffered a defeat in the Carabao Cup final against Liverpool.

Following the loss, there have been indications that Chelsea harbors significant reservations regarding Pochettino. Malouda has shared his perspective on Pochettino’s future.

What did Malouda say about the former Chelsea manager?

Though he believes Chelsea will support Pochettino for the time being, former manager Mourinho stands out as the sole suitable successor, according to Malouda. He said: “I am not worried about Pochettino.”

“I am worried about Chelsea. In terms of managers, when you look at the options available apart from Mourinho, there is nobody obvious for the job that could make a big difference. I believe in stability, and I believe the club should support the manager and include him more in the process of picking players in the club strategy.”

“I definitely think we need to stick with Pochettino. Instead, we need to bring people on board now who can back him up and help him develop his ideas.”

Mourinho, the former Chelsea manager, previously had two prosperous periods at Stamford Bridge. In his first stint, he secured two Premier League titles, the FA Cup, and two League Cups. Upon his return in 2013, he clinched another league title and League Cup.
