Pochettino remains at Chelsea, but results must improve soon

Despite recent fan unrest and a disappointing home loss to Wolves, Chelsea are currently holding off on making another managerial change this season.

However, the pressure is mounting on Mauricio Pochettino to quickly improve the team’s performance and results.

The 4-2 defeat sparked chants for former manager Jose Mourinho and ex-owner Roman Abramovich, highlighting fan dissatisfaction.

While the club isn’t panicking, Pochettino has until the season’s end to convince owners Eghbali and Boehly that his leadership is driving progress.

This timeframe aligns with the assessment periods of the two previous managers he replaced, both sacked after 31 games.

Qualifying for European competition is seen as critical for Pochettino’s future.

Currently 11th in the Premier League, they have the League Cup final and an FA Cup replay ahead, offering chances to improve their standing.

However, Pochettino isn’t the only one facing scrutiny.

Co-sporting directors Winstanley and Stewart are also under fire for questionable recruitment.

Whether their roles will be assessed alongside Pochettino’s remains unclear.
