Chelsea fans voiced their frustration on social media following a 4-2 loss to Wolves at Stamford Bridge, with many directing criticism toward manager Mauricio Pochettino. Despite his past success in the EFL Cup, some supporters are questioning his leadership, especially leading up to the final against Liverpool later this month. Chelsea’s recent decline in the league standings has added to fans’ growing dissatisfaction.
Interestingly, a number of fans have suggested that 61-year-old Jose Mourinho should take over from Pochettino as the team’s manager. One fan expressed urgency, stating, “Sack Pochettino and hire Jose Mourinho now before we return to London.” Another fan recalled Mourinho’s historical success with the team, saying, “When Chelsea are down, José Mourinho comes to the rescue.” However, concerns were raised about Mourinho’s recent managerial performance and the potential clash with player egos.
While some fans see Mourinho as a potential solution, others view it as a step backward, considering his recent struggles at Roma. Nevertheless, if Pochettino is dismissed, Mourinho’s name is likely to be brought into the discussion.
