EPL: Pochettino quits Chelsea by mutual consent

Mauricio Pochettino has left his role as Chelsea manager by mutual consent.

This exit comes less than 11 months after he arrived at the Premier League club.

Chelsea’s decision to part ways with the 52-year-old comes following the conclusion of an internal review into the club’s 2023-24 season performance.

The review was led by by co-sporting directors Paul Winstanley and Laurence Stewart.

The Blues beat Bournemouth 2-1 on the final day of the season in what proved to be Pochettino’s final game in charge to secure a sixth-placed finish in the Premier League and ensure that European football will return to Stamford Bridge for the 2024-25 campaign.

Pochettino became Chelsea’s sixth permanent manager in five years following the sacking of Thomas Tuchel and Graham Potter last season, which led to Frank Lampard taking charge on a temporary basis.
