Chelsea have given Mauricio Pochettino an ultimatum, with the Carabao Cup final the crucial point that could decide his future at the club. According to reports from Football Insider, a loss to Liverpool at Wembley could lead to his sacking, although the club’s owners did not want to part ways with the former Tottenham manager mid-season.
For Pochettino, the clash with Aston Villa in the FA Cup on Wednesday and the Carabao Cup final against Liverpool are crucial events. While Chelsea’s owners have shown some patience after a difficult season, they are watching for signs of deterioration in the team’s internal environment.
Chelsea’s ultimatum to Pochettino
Chelsea fans’ frustration is evident given the team’s poor performance, which currently sits 11th in the Premier League. Despite investments in the transfer market, results have not been as expected, increasing pressure on Pochettino to improve the team’s play.
The 51-year-old Argentine has had weeks to work with the team and make tactical adjustments, but so far the results have not been satisfactory. With Chelsea aiming to significantly improve their performance, the Carabao Cup final could be the defining moment for Pochettino and his continuity on the London club’s bench.
