Chelsea concerned sacking Pochettino may violate FFP rules due to massive payoff revealed for ex-Spurs boss

Introduction to this article
Chelsea are reportedly facing concerns about breaching Premier League spending rules if they decide to sack manager Mauricio Pochettino. The club’s owners have spent over £1 billion on new players since taking over, but with the team’s current performance and financial challenges, there is growing pressure on Pochettino and the club’s management.

Financial Concerns over Sacking Pochettino

Despite the significant investment in new players, Chelsea has struggled to deliver results, currently sitting in the bottom half of the Premier League table. This has led to mounting pressure on manager Mauricio Pochettino, with calls for former boss Jose Mourinho to return. However, concerns have emerged that sacking Pochettino and his backroom team could cost the club over £10m, potentially impacting the club’s compliance with the Premier League’s Profit and Sustainability Rules.

Premier League Spending Rules and Financial Challenges

The Premier League’s Profit and Sustainability Rules allow clubs to lose a maximum of £105m over a three-year period, with certain exceptions to assist clubs. However, severance pay for sacked managers is not included in these exceptions. Chelsea’s ownership group has already paid out over £20m in compensation to previous managers, adding further financial strain to the club’s current situation.
