Chelsea may not sack Mauricio Pochettino because of strict Premier League rules | Football | Sport

Chelsea are reportedly ‘concerned’ about the financial implications of sacking Mauricio Pochettino. The Argentine is coming under increasing pressure as Blues boss and supporters have already began to voice their opinion on his position in the Stamford Bridge dugout.

Things went from bad to worse for Pochettino over the weekend after his side were beaten at home by Wolves. Cole Palmer gave Chelsea the lead before Matheus Cunha equalised just minutes later for Gary O’Neil’s side.

Wolves then took complete control of the match from that point, with Axel Disasi’s own goal giving the Molineux outfit the lead heading into the interval. Cunha then gave his side a two-goal lead in the 63rd minute before completing his hat-trick from the penalty spot – with Thiago Silva’s 86th minute proving a mere consolation goal for the veteran defender.

Chelsea then left the pitch to a chorus of boos, prompting conversations about whether Pochettino is the right manager to lead the club. However, despite their miserable form, the Blues may have their hands tied by the Premier League’s spending rules.

According to the Daily Mail, Chelsea are fearful that sacking Pochettino would see them breach the Premier League’s guidelines at a time when their financial situation is already under immense scrutiny.
