Chelsea Head Coach, Mauricio Pochettino has departed from the club after one season in charge at the helm of affairs.

A statement from the club on Tuesday said Chelsea FC could confirm that the Club and Pochettino had mutually agreed to part ways.

Sporting Directors Laurence Stewart and Paul Winstanley said: “On behalf of everyone at Chelsea, we would like to express our gratitude to Mauricio for his service this season.

“He will be welcome back to Stamford Bridge any time and we wish him all the very best in his future coaching career.”

Pochettino said: “Thank you to the Chelsea ownership group and Sporting Directors for the opportunity to be part of this football club’s history.

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

According to the statement, Jesus Perez, Miguel d’Agostino, Toni Jimenez and Sebastiano Pochettino had left the club with Mauricio.

The Club said it would be making no further comment until such time as a new Head Coach is appointed.

Pochettino led his youthful squad to the Carabao Cup final, and despite a season largely of struggles, ended the Premier League campaign with five successive wins and secured European football with a sixth-place finish. Chelsea had finished the previous campaign 12th.
