Chelsea cannot replace Pochettino.
“Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino is unlikely to be dismissed this season despite his team’s poor performance,” the British media “Goal.COM” reported on the 6th (Korea time).
Chelsea defeated Wolverhampton 2-4 in the 23rd round of the 2023/24 English Premier League held at Stamford Bridge in London, the U.K. on Tuesday (Korea time). In the match, Chelsea showed no detailed strategy and suffered a double loss to Wolverhampton this season.
Chelsea led the way with Cole Palmer’s first goal, but Cunha briefly scored a hat-trick and Ait Noori scored a goal to reverse the game 4-1. Thiago Silva scored a header at the end of the second half, but it was not enough to bring the game back to square one.
Chelsea lost the match, reversing their standings with Wolverhampton and eventually falling to 11th place, once again moving away from their Champions League and Europa League places 월카지노.
Thiago Silva’s wife has made her feelings clear after Chelsea’s crushing defeat. After the match, Bel Silva left a message that seemed to urge Pochettino to be fired ‘before it’s too late’. She posted on Twitter: “It’s time to change. If you wait any longer, it will be too late.”
After the match, Pochettino said, “We all think it’s not enough. For now, this is the reality. It’s the same for me. What we showed today is that we’re not enough. We didn’t manage the situation properly.”
He continued, “I don’t want to come here and say I’m the best. It’s true that we don’t fit the club’s history at the moment. We have to accept it and be critical. We won’t give up.”
Responding to Chelsea fans’ anger inside the stadium, Pochettino said, “There is a perception that Chelsea should be in a different position, but it is not because of a number of situations. One could be because we do not have enough. It is really important to understand the fans. I feel sorry. We are just as disappointed as they are, but we have to fight together until the end. During the game, we have to work together to get a good result.”
There has been a lot of talk about Pochettino’s replacement since the match, but according to the British media “Daily Mail”, despite the team’s sluggishness, the club may not be able to dismiss Pochettino because it is on the verge of violating FFP regulations.
If Pochettino, who has 18 months left on his existing contract, is fired, Chelsea will have to pay more than 10 million pounds. Chelsea, which has spent more than 1 billion pounds on transferring players since Todd Boehly, is now very close to violating the Premier League’s rules on revenue and sustainability (PSR). According to reports, Chelsea needs to raise 100 million pounds through the sale of players this summer to avoid deducting points like Everton.
Chelsea have planned to dispose of the likes of Armando Broya, Conor Gallagher and Trevor Chalova because the sale of their players is considered a net return under PSR rules. Eventually, Broya was loaned to Fulham, leaving Gallagher and Chalova at Chelsea.
Chelsea has a more challenging schedule ahead of the game. Starting with the FA Cup against Aston Villa, Chelsea will meet Crystal Palace, Manchester City, Liverpool, Brentford, Newcastle and Arsenal in succession.
