Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino praised the power of music after fans sung a chorus from Bob Marley's 'Three Little Birds' during the 3-1 win over Crystal Palace.
By the time he broke into senior football in Argentina with Newell's Old Boys, he had it set in stone to be a central defender.
Pochettino's career would take him to France next, signing with Paris Saint-Germain in 2001 and commanding a regular place in the starting XI until he left in 2003 for Bordeaux.
Pochettino returned to Espanyol in the twilight of his career and three years after hanging up his boots, began coaching the club's women's team. Soon after he was asked to become manager of the men's first team of the Barcelona-based outfit in 2009.
He made his name as a manager in England, though, first in a single-season spell at Southampton before he was snapped up by Tottenham, who hoped he could lead the club to glory.
Pochettino's playing career
Legendary status at Espanyol
Arriving in England with Southampton
His time at St Mary's saw him recruit Victor Wanyama and Dejan Lovren amongst others, with the latter going on to play for Liverpool.
Revolutionising Tottenham Hotspur
Spurs began to show a willingness to entrust Pochettino with greater transfer funds which saw quality players begin to drip into the North London club, including Dele Alli, Toby Alderweireld, and Heung-min Son in his first two seasons.
Return to PSG as a coach
He was part of the PSG team that won their section of the 2001 Intertoto Cup and a team that made it to the Coupe de France final but otherwise won no honours in Paris as a player.
In 2021, Pochettino enjoyed an eventful start to his time as PSG boss, guiding the team to victory in the French Super Cup and in February seeing his star-studded outfit defeat Barcelona 4-1 at the Camp Nou in his first Champions League game in charge of the team.
Tottenham reportedly wanted to re-hire the Argentinian in the summer of 2021 to replace Jose Mourinho, but Pochettino quickly declared his intention to remain in Paris.
Back in the Premier League with Chelsea
One of Pochettino's first tasks will be deciding who of that number are part of his plans and who can leave, with the club under pressure to sell players in order to satisfy Financial Fair Play rules after spending around £600million on transfers in the last 12 months.
Pochettino's major honours
Espanyol: Copa del Rey (2000) (2006)
PSG: Intertoto Cup (2001)
PSG: Ligue 1 (2021/22), Coupe de France (2021)
Personal life and net worth
Pochettino is a big believer in the notion of 'energia universal' and the interconnected nature of life and existence.
