Report: Pochettino keen to take man who left Tottenham last year to Chelsea 

The Daily Mail have revealed that Mauricio Pochettino could take Tottenham’s former technical performance director Steve Hitchen to Chelsea.

Although Chelsea have not confirmed Pochettino’s appointment yet, it appears to be almost a done deal (Sky Sports), much to the consternation of Spurs fans, many of whom still have a lot of affection towards the Argentine.

According to reports, Spurs did not even approach the 51-year-old about coming back to N17, which is said to have left the soon-to-be Chelsea boss bitterly disappointed (talkSPORT).

The Mail have now confirmed that Pochettino not only wants to take Jesus Perez, goalkeeper coach Toni Jimenez and his eldest son Sebastiano, who worked on his staff at Spurs, to Chelsea but is also keen on reuniting with Hitchen.

Hitchen’s most-recent five-year spell at Tottenham came to an end almost a year ago, with The Athletic reporting at the time that the 46-year-old lost most of his power after Fabio Paratici was appointed as Tottenham’s managing director of football in 2021.

Spurs Web Opinion

We know that Pochettino and Hitchen share a good relationship, which might explain why Tottenham were keen on bringing the Argentine back to the club in 2021 (when Hitchen was still in charge) but are not keen on doing so right now.
