Mauricio Pochettino has warned Chelsea owners that he could decide to quit as Chelsea manager at the end of the season.

He said: “Look, it’s not important [whether he is at Chelsea next season or not].

“The most important thing is to keep going, working if we are all happy, not only the owners happy with us, or the sporting directors with us, or us, with all the organisation that the club is building here because of them we are all under assessment. If we are happy, perfect.

“But it is not only if the owners are happy or the sporting directors are happy. If we are happy, you need to ask us, also, because maybe we are not happy and we accept the situation and then we are not happy and we need to split.

“It is not going to be the first time the coaching staff at the end of the season decide to not keep going. But at this end, it is always the opposite way, it is always the owners or the sporting directors.

“They can say tomorrow ‘I want to leave’. It is two parts to make a decision. Because Chelsea is not happy, the owners or the sporting directors. Maybe we are not happy because we arrive here with a job to do and in the end it has not happened what we expect.

“Maybe we are not happy. I am not saying I am not happy but it is always one side and maybe [we need to look at the] other side.”
