Chelsea considering 42-year old manager to replace under fire Mauricio Pochettino
The Premier League team believes it is time to fire Pochettino following a dismal season, according to the French publication Sports Zone. After losing to Wolves at Stamford Bridge once more, the Blues are currently 11th in the Premier League.
Chelsea’s most recent loss in the Premier League this season was against Wolves, their tenth in 23 games. With just nine wins and four draws, Pochettino’s club is currently sitting closer to the fourth-place team in the league than it is to relegation.
According to Sports Zone, Chelsea’s owners might be considering changing the manager immediately. Behdad Eghbali is contemplating Alonso, who is also being pursued by Bayern Munich and Liverpool, since he is eager to bring in the Spaniard at this time. However, Todd Boehly might be less receptive to the team making an abrupt management change.
This season, Chelsea has given up more goals than they have scored. The fact that the team has a negative goal differential after 23 games this season ought to worry club management greatly.
Despite joining last summer and being able to work with a lot of fresh players, Pochettino has not been able to have a significant impact.
The team’s sole accomplishment this year has been making it to the Carabao Cup final, but they still have a long way to go because Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool is standing in their way.
Fans are vocally demanding a change at the club after witnessing them give up eight goals in their past two league games. It feels like all progress, either on offence or defence, has ceased.
