Pochettino not alarmed about potential sacking from Chelsea


Mauricio Pochettino has downplayed the significance of potentially leaving Chelsea at the end of the season, stating that it would “not be the end of the world.”

The Chelsea boss addressed recent speculation about his future following his team’s victory against Tottenham last week, calling for an end to what he described as “stupid rumours.”

Pochettino emphasized the importance of alignment between himself and his coaching staff with the club’s owners, indicating that this factor would be pivotal in determining his continuation at Chelsea.

Pochettino said the “organisation of the club is building” and that “we are all under assessment”.

Chelsea chairman Todd Boehly said on Thursday that his plans for the club are “coming together” but Pochettino has made clear that conversations with the club’s board at the end of the season should include his input.

“If we are happy, perfect,” said 52-year-old Pochettino.

“But it is not only if the owners are happy or the sporting directors happy… You need to ask us also, because maybe (we) say ‘we are not happy’ and we accept the situation and we need to split,” Pochettino said.

“It is not going to be the first time the coaching staff at the end of the season decide to not keep going. But at this end, it is always the opposite way, it is always the owners or the sporting directors.”

Pochettino, who has also managed Tottenham Hotspur and Paris St-Germain, said “two parties” are needed to “make a decision”.

“Maybe we are not happy because we arrive here with a job to do and in the end it has not happened,” he added. “I am not saying I am not happy.

“If we split it’s not a problem, it will not be the end of the world.”

Seventh-placed Chelsea have upcoming fixtures against Nottingham Forest on Saturday and Brighton on Wednesday, before concluding their Premier League season at home against Bournemouth on 19 May.
