Chelsea co-sporting director Laurence Stewart has recommended former PSG and Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino to Chelsea owner Todd Boehly, according to Football Insider.

Stewart is close to Paul Mitchell – the former Tottenham sporting director, who remains on good terms with ex-Spurs boss Pochettino.

Pochettino is keen on becoming Chelsea boss and Stewart has given a glowing recommendation about the Argentina manager to Chelsea owners.

Pochettino left Tottenham in November 2019, just months after leading Tottenham to the Champions League final.

After leaving Tottenham, he won the first trophies of his managerial career with Paris Saint-Germain – including a Ligue 1 title in the 2020-21 campaign.
