Chelsea refuse to make early decision on Pochettino’s future

Chelsea are sticking to their guns and will not make an early decision regarding the future of manager Mauricio Pochettino. 

According to the Telegraph, the Blues have decided to wait until the end of the season to hold an end-of-season review before deciding on Pochettino.

The review is likely to include sporting directors Paul Winstanley and Laurence Stewart. Members of the co-ownership team of Behdad Eghbali, Todd Boehly and Jose E Feliciano should also be present.

Pochettino has come under criticism as the Blues struggled for most of the season, with fans booing the team on multiple occasions. 

The lowest of lows came when Chelsea suffered a 5-0 mullering against Arsenal last month.

Chelsea have since climbed to seventh in the Premier League, having picked up seven points from their last three matches.

They could seal a place in the Europa League or Europa Conference League, which might affect the outlook on Pochettino’s tenure.

The upcoming end-of-season review will be pivotal for both Pochettino and Chelsea.  

Pochettino must convince the board that the team’s struggles were teething problems and that he can lead them to success next season.  

Chelsea need to weigh Pochettino’s performance against the circumstances.

They must consider the injury situation and poor squad building by the sporting directors.
