Report: Mauricio Pochettino’s job isn’t safe beyond the summer, as Chelsea prepare for more change

Mauricio Pocehttino’s job is not safe beyond the end of the season, as Chelsea prepare for another summer of upheaval according to reports.

The club’s hierarchy are facing a huge decision on whether to stick or twist with the Argentine, who has overseen a very disappointing campaign to date.

The Blues sunk to new lows following Tuesday night’s 5-0 defeat against Arsenal with many fans calling for the 52-year-old to be replaced.

Telegraph Sport report that no majority decision has been taken on Pochettino’s future beyond the end of the season.

Pressure is mounting on the former Tottenham manager following back to back defeats to Manchester City and Arsenal, with many fans critical of some of his decisions.

The Telegraph adds that Pochettino still retains support within the club and there’s an understanding he’s been working with a tough set of circumstances.

It’s claimed there’s some belief that he can’t be solely responsible for the difficulties he’s faced in west London, given he wasn’t responsible for transfer policy and the decision to build such a young squad.

Pochettino signed a two year deal last summer with the option of a further year, and the plan has always been to sit down at the end of the season and discuss his future.

The Blues can’t win any silverware this campaign and now face an uphill battle to qualify for European competition next season, with Aston Villa and Spurs next up in a tough six game run.

Failure to secure European football would further dent Pochettino’s chances of staying at Stamford Bridge, but it’s reported there’s some recognition at board level that keeping the former Paris Saint Germain manager no matter what would provide some much needed stability after two years of constant upheaval.

Whatever happens it’s set to be another busy summer in west London with plenty of comings and goings and maybe a third manager in just over two years.
