The Wolves suffered a 4-1 loss to Liverpool at Anfield last week. Despite having a worse record than Graham Potter last season, it seems unlikely that their manager will be sacked. There is speculation that Pochettino could still win some silverware if they beat favorites Liverpool in the Carabao Cup final at the end of the month. On the other hand, there is a debate about whether Chelsea should sack Pochettino and reappoint Jose.
Another factor to consider is the cost of firing Pochettino and his team. Chelsea is concerned about breaching the Premier League’s profit and sustainability regulations. It is expected that Chelsea will need to sell several players before the end of June to stay within the limit of a £105m loss over three seasons. The departure of homegrown talents like Conor Gallagher, Trevoh Chalobah, and Armando Broja is likely as they represent a potential source of profit.
However, changing the head coach again could lead to a bigger financial deficit. The cost of Pochettino and his team’s pay off could lead to a significant financial impact. Pochettino has faced issues outside his control but admits he must do better. A few more losses could bring the end game in sight, causing further financial problems for the club.
This could create another money challenge for a club that thought they could win quickly by doing things differently.
