Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino has claimed that his job at Chelsea is a lot easier than the task he had at Southampton and Tottenham.

Pochettino impressed with the Saints before taking on the Spurs job where he also impressed at the time.

A lot is expected from Pochettino at Chelsea, and the Argentine has vowed to succeed.

Pochettino has even insisted that the Chelsea job is much easier than what he experienced at Southampton and Tottenham.

“It’s less hard than when we were in Southampton and Tottenham, trust me, believe me,” said the former PSG manager.

“The only thing we are missing is scoring goals, because the team is playing, if you see our first few months in Southampton and Tottenham, I think we are playing much better.

“We are doing much better here, but we are missing the most important (thing) in football – to score. But it’s not harder than the previous experience.

“It was different (at Tottenham). The transformation was with us, in the way that we found the squad, with the club, we were working in six months, one year to change and design.

“Here, the plan was already made, and we arrived here and we tried to develop this project. When I arrived here, the plan had started to work. Now I am part of the plan. Of course I am responsible here also like in Tottenham, but I think it was a little bit different.”
