Mauricio Pochettino has been relieved of his duties at Chelsea after just one season at Stamford Bridge.

It has been a chaotic season at Chelsea, but things began to pick up towards the end of the season, with Chelsea winning their last five games of the campaign.

The dismissal of Pochettino seems to have come at a wrong time, as the Argentine was beginning to get a grasp of the team.

Reacting to the development, Bent in a chat with Talksport, stated that Pochettino should have been given more time to achieve his goals.

Bent stated: “[It’s] embarrassing. Pochettino has had his critics this season, right, and he finally gets this Chelsea squad, which has been put together, so many players, so much different change, he finally gets them to a point where it starts to look like my team and they get rid of him.

“No, you have got to give him next season. You cannot let him do that work.

“Like the way they ended the season was incredible. I think they were one of the in-form sides, up there with Arsenal and Manchester City, the last five to 10 games.

“You can’t get rid of him now. He is now getting a tune out of some of these players. [Moises] Caicedo looks brilliant, scored a great goal. Stick with him.”
