Chelsea closing in on agreeing on a deal with Mauricio Pochettino.
The 51-year-old manager has been out of work since leaving PSG at the end of last season.
According to reports, he is expected to replace interim boss Frank Lampard at Chelsea before the start of next season.
The former Spurs manager has emerged as frontrunner for the Chelsea job after Julian Nagelsmann pulled out of the race.
The Argentine coach believes he will be able to build a young squad that can play his style of football.
Frank Lampard has been hired temporarily until the end of the season and Pochettino is the favourite to take the Chelsea hot seat.
“Mauricio Pochettino doesn’t inherently strike me as a Chelsea manager,” Collymore said in an exclusive interview.
“What I mean is, Pochettino isn’t the type of manager we’ve seen previously over the years at Stamford Bridge.
“Others have come in and been fully aware that they must hit the ground running. Obviously, Pochettino will know he’ll need to start well and get some good results if he gets the job, but he is a manager that builds for the future. He will want time to get the young and inexperienced players playing a certain way – that is unlikely to happen instantly.”
