Pochettino joined Chelsea before of the 2023-24 season, replacing interim manager Frank Lampard as new owners Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital sought to freshen things up at Stamford Bridge after finishing 12th the previous season.

Although Chelsea started the season poorly and finished in the bottom half of the rankings despite spending more than any other team in Europe, Pochettino led the London club to sixth place in the Premier League.

There had been speculation that the former Paris Saint-Germain and Tottenham Hotspur manager might leave after only one year in charge, but Pochettino remained tight-lipped about his future when asked after their final game of the season on Sunday.

Thank you to the Chelsea ownership group and sporting directors for the opportunity to be part of this football club’s history,” Pochettino said on Tuesday.

“The club is now well positioned to keep moving forward in the Premier League and Europe in the years to come.”
