Mauricio Pochettino recommends patience amid multiple backlashes

Chelsea’s head coach Mauricio Pochettino called for patience as The Blues continue to disappoint their fans this season.


The Pensioners were beaten at the Wembley Stadium on February 25 during the Carabao Cup final between them and Liverpool, and it has started to look as if Chelsea would win no trophy this season.

Furthermore, the team’s players have become subjects of what Mauricio Pochettino viewed as uneducated or ignorant comparisons.

Speaking in a statement transcribed by, the Argentinian said the following concerning that:

‘From the beginning we have been talking about Jackson needing to score goals, which is okay, but you cannot compare Jackson now with Didier Drogba. Drogba was one of the best strikers in the world and it’s difficult to build another Drogba.

‘Even when people say Enzo played in a World Cup final, it’s important to remember that he started that competition as a young guy on the bench. The focus was on Messi and other players and he was playing free, but now he is the focus and people are saying he needs to win the game. For him it is the first time feeling he is the main guy and that is about learning.

‘Part of my responsibility is to make sure people get the reality, our truth. To try to explain it to them from the inside, not from people who don’t know what is happening here. I think it is unfair to focus on those things or make those comparisons, but I accept everyone’s opinion.’

One of the takeaways from Pochettino’s comments is that some of their critics were using either wrong measurements or expecting unrealistic accomplishments from his boys.

Though there are rumours saying that the gaffer might be sacked because of lack of good results as Chelsea sit low in the 11th spot on the Premier League table, Pochettino suggested that patience was the need for the time.

‘Of course we wanted to win the Carabao Cup, like we want to win the FA Cup, we want to win the Premier League, we want to win every competition.

‘That is always the objective at the start of the season, but now the reality is to see if we can qualify to play in Europe next season. It is going to be tough, because of the circumstances and because of the reality.

‘Our responsibility is always to match expectations, but the problem is when expectation and reality is not close. When they are close it is easy. We are working hard so that people trust in us but we need to be patient, because we are building in a different way to succeed and always it is about time.

‘The new owners arrived with the right intention and they want to build something that is different from the past, which we need to understand. We are part of this and want to move this project forward. We have ups and downs, but it is only the beginning. That is why we cannot compare to the past.’
