Former Chelsea midfielder Steve Sidwell is open to the idea of watching Mauricio Pochettino become the next head coach at Stamford Bridge. The Argentine has done a credible job in developing Tottenham Hotspur into a top-four side but his future at Spurs remains uncertain beyond the summer.
Recent reports have surprisingly linked Pochettino with a move to Chelsea, and Sidwell fancies the prospect of the 46-year-old managing the Blues, he told TalkSPORT: “There’s no smoke without fire so there’s probably an element of truth in there, and you look at it the other way where he [Pochettino] is looking for contract renewals - or maybe his agent has put the idea in there - to buck Spurs’ ideas up. But if it is true I’d welcome it with open arms. He’s been fantastic since he came to the country; what he did with Southampton was brilliant.”
