Mauricio Pochettino leaves Chelsea after one season


Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino has left the club by mutual consent after just one season at Stamford Bridge.

Pochettino, 52, took charge of Chelsea on 1 July, signing a two-year contract with the option of a further year.

The Argentine came under fire after an underwhelming first half of the season but led them to a sixth-place finish in the Premier League.

Chelsea also finished as runners-up in the Carabao Cup and reached the semi-finals of the FA Cup.

“Thank you to the Chelsea ownership group and sporting directors for the opportunity,” Pochettino said.

“The club is now well positioned to keep moving forward in the Premier League and Europe in the years to come.”

He is the third manager to be sacked, following Thomas Tuchel and Graham Potter, since Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital bought the club in May 2022.
