Chelsea have parted ways with the club’s manager Mauricio Pochettino after what has been a less-than-stellar debut campaign with the club.

A report from Matt_Law_DT, shared by Fabrizio Romano, confirmed the Blues have reached an agreement with the Argentine tactician to end their collaboration after a largely unsatisfactory campaign.

“Mauricio Pochettino and Chelsea part ways with immediate effect”, the transfer expert wrote on X.

“Chelsea and Pochettino have already agreed on terms, as @Matt_Law_DT reports.

↪️ #CFC will consider a young manager as priority to replace Pochettino.

Chelsea club statement confirming the sack of Mauricio Pochettino reads;

“Chelsea FC can confirm that the Club and Mauricio Pochettino have mutually agreed to part ways.”

Sporting Directors Laurence Stewart and Paul Winstanley said: ‘On behalf of everyone at Chelsea, we would like to express our gratitude to Mauricio for his service this season. He will be welcome back to Stamford Bridge any time and we wish him all the very best in his future coaching career.’

Mauricio Pochettino said: ‘Thank you to the Chelsea ownership group and Sporting Directors for the opportunity to be part of this football club’s history. The Club is now well positioned to keep moving forward in the Premier League and Europe in the years to come.’

Mauricio Pochettino struggled to get Chelsea to gears in the Premier League and had hovered to and fro the bottom half of the Premier League table before a brilliant finish towards the end of the campaign.

He led Chelsea to finish 6th on the Premier League table, securing a tentative Europa League slot pending the outcome of the FA Cup final clash between Manchester City and Manchester United.

Overall, it has not been an underwhelming debut campaign for Poch with Chelsea, considering the heinous task of molding a formidable squad from the jigsaw of youngsters assembled from Todd Boehly’s billion-dollar transfer splurge.

However, it is understood Poch has been under pressure despite his recent gains at Chelsea after he lost the EFL Cup final to Liverpool and also crashed out in the semi-final of the FA Cup, losing to Manchester City.
