Achraf Hakimi Finally Shares why He Didn’t Sign for Chelsea.
Hakimi claims Tottenham have always wanted him to sign him since 2019, while Pochetino was still the head coach. This was the key reason why he choose Paris Saint-Germain, he felt they needed him more despite a Chelsea offer.
French tabloid L’Equipe reports Hakimi almost went to Tottenham, the only thing that held him back was his contract.
He also said, “When I got offers from Chelsea and PSG I felt I had no choice but to come to Paris because that is where I would find happiness.”
“Pochettino also played important role in making my decision. I like his approach, he is quick to the ball and pays attention to the attack. He wanted me to Tottenham too.”
