The high expenses on player purchases in the last transfer windows and the negative performances in recent competitions have led to a sharp decline in profits and an increase in economic losses. Chelsea has already surpassed this value and will need urgent sales by the end of 2024-25 to realign within the budget. With a termination clause valued at over £10 million (equivalent to R$62.6 million), Pochettino will remain in his position to prevent the amount from rising further. The directors contact me every day, I received a very positive message from the owners after the game (against Wolverhampton).
I told the players in a meeting today that I believe in them more than ever. I am the leader, not a normal boss. I need to affirm every action I believe in. The fans need to be patient, and we will find a way to succeed – said the coach in a press conference.
“Pochettino: “I received a very good text after the game against Wolves from the owners. We’re all together in this!” – Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) [pic.twitter.com/DdwEebYwGi] [February 6, 2024]. It’s worth noting that Everton went through a similar situation this season: after being investigated for economic rule violations, they had ten points deducted, complicating their situation in the relegation battle.
