Mikel Obi Suggests Pochettino Would Have Been Sacked Under Abramovich’s Reign

John Obi Mikel suggests that if Roman Abramovich were still in charge at Chelsea, Mauricio Pochettino might have faced the axe by now.

Since Abramovich’s departure, Chelsea has seen a turnover in managers under Todd Boehly’s ownership, but without the same success as before.

Pochettino’s tenure has been marked by inconsistency, with Chelsea currently sitting in 11th place in the Premier League. Their recent loss in the Carabao Cup final adds to their woes, potentially leaving them out of Champions League contention once again.

Mikel Obi told the Evening Standard: “Some of the criticism has been over the top, but we went through the same thing playing for Chelsea when we were not winning, getting criticised and watching managers losing their jobs. This is Chelsea. You have to win. You have to win games and trophies.

“Yes, we’ve given them time, but they have had time to start gelling, coming together, and playing much better. I defend the players and coach. They have to be given time, but how much time? This is Chelsea FC. If this was the [Roman] Abramovich era, he would have lost his job.”
