Wolves manager Gary O’Neil expects Chelsea to bounce back next season

Wolves manager Gary O’Neil has shared his thoughts on Mauricio Pochettino’s unexpected exit from west London club Chelsea, expressing confidence in the Blues’ resurgence next season.

Pochettino, who took the helm at Chelsea for the 2023-24 season, left the club on Tuesday, May 21, after leading them to a respectable sixth-place finish.

Reports indicate that the split was amicable, with no lingering animosity between the parties.

Reflecting on the situation, O’Neil expressed surprise at Pochettino’s exit, acknowledging the solid foundation the Argentine had built during his tenure.

He believes that Chelsea will thrive under new leadership next season.

Speaking to Sky Sports, O’Neil remarked, “You talk about tough jobs and what I walked into at Wolves. But he walked into an incredibly tough changing room with so many players that had been signed and trying to keep them united. Was obviously going to take time.

“Really good club, special club Chelsea, one of the biggest in London. I’m sure they will find a good replacement. I expect them to be very strong next year.”
