Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino will not be in the dugout today for their game away against Newcastle United in the Premier League.
His lack of presence will be a big loss for Chelsea’s players and will surely be felt and could have an effect on the game, despite Pochettino still being close by in the stands.
But he will not be allowed in the dugout or on the sidelines due to being banned after receiving three yellow cards already this season, as per The Evening Standard.
The Blues boss has been seen getting very frustrated by some very poor standards of officiating of matches this season and is being punished as a result.
The standard of Refereeing has been very poor again this season in the supposed best league in the world. But Pochettino, like many other managers, are the ones being punished and really should be doing better as well as the Ref’s even if you fully understand their anger.
