It would be «INSANE» for Chelsea to sack Mauricio Pochettino and the Blues boss needs time to win «power struggles» in the dressing room, claims Jamie Redknapp.


Jamie Redknapp insisted Mauricio Pochettino is the right manager to lead Chelsea after their 3-2 win against Nottingham Forest.

After an unfortunate start to his tenure at Stamford Bridge, Pochettino has overseen an impressive upturn in form at the club in recent months.

The Blues have lost just once in their last 13 Premier League games, with the only blemish on the club’s recent record being a 5-0 thrashing by Arsenal.

Chelsea overcame adversity at the City Ground on Saturday to secure all three points and record their first away win since a 3-1 win over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in February.

After the clash, Redknapp compared Pochettino’s current situation to that of Mikel Arteta when the Spaniard took over at Arsenal in 2019.

The Argentine has led a remarkable upturn in form at the club in recent weeks after a shaky start at Stamford Bridge.

«I really think there’s been a dialogue that’s been very positive for Mauricio and I think he’ll be the manager next year as it stands.» Redknapp said on Sky Sports.

“I think it would be crazy not to. I think you’ve got a lot of young players there that need a little bit of guidance, a little bit of time, and I definitely think he’s the right man.

“I just don’t think going and going and changing and cutting and getting another manager is the solution. If things don’t start well next season, obviously you might start looking at it, but you can’t give a manager a year, managers need time.

“Look what Arteta had to do. It took two or three years for him to establish himself as a dominant figure in that dressing room. Now look and he had a few matches, power struggles, with players, with people like Lacazette, Aubameyang.

«He’s won those games and now he’s running that club, leading that dressing room and Mauricio might have to have that too and it’s going to take time.»

Despite Chelsea’s strong form of late, Pochettino’s future at the club has appeared increasingly tenuous with reports of friction between the former Spurs boss and the club’s hierarchy.

The Blues secured their first Premier League away win since February at the City Ground on Saturday

Last month, Pochettino claimed he had not «crossed paths» with club owner Todd Boehly for months, communicating instead through sporting directors Paul Winstanley and Laurence Stewart.

Then, on Friday, the 52-year-old cast even more doubt over his Blues future when he appeared to suggest he may not be entirely happy at the club, although he later walked back those comments.
