The Chelsea hierarchy will conduct a review of Mauricio Pochettino’s performance at the end of the season.

It has been a season of highs and lows for Chelsea, but the 5-0 defeat to Arsenal was the lowest it could get for Chelsea under Mauricio Pochettino.

Chelsea fans are calling for Mauricio Pochettino to be sacked, but Rio Ferdinand doesn’t see this as a possibility.

The BlueCo have spent £1billion on transfer signings, with the bulk of the investment on young players with potential.

Rio Ferdinand has said that with the squad given to Pochettino, the manager shouldn’t be sacked, as the blame should rather be on the board.

“What I would say is that if you have spent a billion pounds on potential then you can’t sack the manager,” Ferdinand told TNT Sports.

“I’m really interested to see how this summer goes in terms of the management situation.

“Mauricio Pochettino, when he gets an appraisal done at the end of the season, that will be one of the first things he says – ‘What do you expect? I have got one of the youngest squads around. I have invested in lots of potential. No real end product all over park’ – We were saying before, where is the experience?

“When there is a rocky moment in the game, where are the people and the characters that are going to drag the young players along?

“The main one, on the bench, was Thiago Silva but he is 38-years-old. They need to buy experience.”
