Despite facing criticisms, certain analysts have come to Pochettino’s defense, attributing the team’s setbacks to broader structural issues within the club’s ownership.

While Pochettino successfully guided Chelsea to the Carabao Cup final this season, the team fell short of reaching the FA Cup final after a defeat in the semi-finals to Manchester City. However, his achievements have not shielded him from intense scrutiny.
