Frank Lampard highlights the issues that incoming Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino will face.

Frank Lampard described Mauricio Pochettino’s long list of concerns at Chelsea after the team concluded the Premier League season in 12th place with their lowest-ever points total in the tournament.

Despite their owners’ massive transfer spending in the previous two windows, the West London club’s season ended in a 1-1 draw with Newcastle on the penultimate day.

Lampard, whose interim tenure is now finished after just one win in 11 games, anticipated a major challenge for his replacement while acknowledging that standards at the club have fallen.

Pochettino has signed a deal with Chelsea and is set to be named the club’s next permanent manager in the near future, but Lampard believes the players’ level and attitude must improve dramatically for his appointment to be successful.

According to Lampard, one of the most difficult difficulties this season has been the Chelsea squad’s overwhelming size after 19 players were brought in for a £600 million fee. As a result, big-name players have been kept out of matchday teams or have been marginalized, affecting team morale.

Pochettino’s key objectives will be to trim the roster, improve the fitness of the players who stay, and establish a more aggressive, winning attitude in the club, according to Lampard.
