Reece James has sent a message to Pochettino as he prepares to take charge of Chelsea in the summer.

Chelsea right-back Reece James has spoken out about their new manager, Mauricio Pochettino, after his appointment was officially announced last week.

The Blue Lion team announced that the former boss of Tottenham Hotspur and Paris Saint-Germain is a new coach. Who will start work this summer immediately. After today’s C, they suffered a setback in the Premier League.

Speaking to ยูฟ่าเบท, James said Pochettino believes they can return to form this coming season.

“Yes, everyone said the same thing. He is a great manager. Hopefully next season we can get back to strong form early on and we are a good and strong team.”

“It was a difficult year. We had a lot of injured players and we weren’t able to do our best. I really hope that next year will be better,” James said.

“Reece had a hamstring injury in the midweek game,” add Lampard. “He got through it but then had a scan and he’s out.

“Mason has been carrying a pelvic injury for a while.

It predates myself and he has been trying typically but he will have minor surgery, then a four-week recovery.

“He [Mount] might make the last match but that’s unlikely. Which is obviously disappointing for us.”

Lampard, brought in earlier this month to replace Graham Potter until the end of the season, has lost all four games of his second spell in charge at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues are 11th in the Premier League table and their season is effectively over after they were knocked out of the Champions League by Real Madrid in the quarter-finals last week.

Argentine Pochettino could take over before the end of the campaign, but former midfielder Lampard, who is Chelsea’s all-time leading goalscorer, said the club has “big difficulties”.

Asked whether he expects to be in charge for the remaining games, Lampard add: “I wouldn’t expect anything in football, but we have come in to a club with big difficulties, with not a lot of time.

“[There are] a lot of factors as to the four games I have here. The team and club have been struggling for a while. We are here to help but things won’t change in a short time.”
