Mauricio Pochettino has revealed his stance on whether he would ever consider quitting his current position as Chelsea manager.

The Argentine has come under so much pressure since taking up the job at Stamford Bridge last summer.

After 26 matches in the Premier League, Chelsea have been rooted in 11th place, mainly due to inconsistent results.

The Blues also missed out on a rare chance to win a trophy this season, after they were narrowly beaten 1-0 by Liverpool in the Carabao Cup final at Wembley.

Disgruntled Chelsea fans have turned on Pochettino in recent weeks, and it’s been reported that the club’s board are already lining up a replacement for the 52-year-old, with names like Roberto De Zerbi and Ruben Amorim said to be on their list.

In the wake of the massive pressure on Pochettino, the Chelsea coach was recently asked by the Evening Standard if he would consider walking away from his current position as Chelsea manager at some point in the future, to which he confidently replied: “No, no, no. Why? Never.”

The Guardian has previously reported that the position of Chelsea’s owners regarding Pochettino’s future at the moment is to allow him finish the season before a decision on his future will be made, but the coach himself know that whether or not he sees the end of the campaign will heavily rely on how the Blues fare in the next few games, starting with tonight’s Premier League clash against Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge.

If Pochettino can manage to get a win against the Magpies on Monday night, it could set the foundation for his side to go on and enjoy a stronger finish to the 2023-24 campaign.
