A continual of Chelsea’s poor run in the Premier League this season won’t only cost them a Champions League spot for next season but also some huge amount of cash. Having fallen down further the table with their 7th League defeat at the hands of Stoke City in the weekend, the club is now in 16th position heading to the 2-week international break.
The Blues risk losing 100 million Pounds in total with the way things are, and the club owner will be hoping to rectify the needed changes before the situation get worse. Failure to qualify for the Champions League next term will cost Chelsea 40 million Pounds in total, and their chances of finishing in top 4 look so slim with their current record.
The Pensioners are with 11 points after 12 games and have scored 16 goals and conceded 23 in the process. Only Norwich City, Bournemouth and Sunderland have conceded more, but the team have also done well despite their lack of attacking power, scoring more than Liverpool and Crystal Palace. The poor results might force Roman Abramovich to show Mourinho the exit door if changes don’t occur, but the Russian has surprisingly shown support to the Portuguese handler.
If the coach is however sacked, the management will have to part with 10 million Pounds as a payoff fees for the coach who recently signed a new 4-year contract extension at the beginning of the season. Getting a new coach will also come at a cost, and most definitely the handler will look at getting a massive transfer budget in order to make major squad changes that are badly needed at the Stamford Bridge.
