“Go and talk with the owner” – Pochettino responds to Chelsea fans calling for Mourinho

Mauricio Pochettino has responded to rumours of a Jose Mourinho return to Chelsea and the fact that some fans have been chanting Mourinho’s name at recent games.

Make no mistake, some Blues fans at the moment want Pochettino out as soon as possible, and many are angry that he is still here and hasn’t already been sacked. There is a serious lack of connection between him and the fanbase in general right now, a connection that I just cannot ever see coming.

This has led for calls of Mourinho coming back to Chelsea, something that many Blues fans would love to see and have been calling for.

And Pochettino ha surged anyone who thinks that Mourinho or any other manager can do a better job than he is doing at the club right now, to go and tell the owners and the sporting directors that point!

To be honest mate, I think many of them already have been!

Pochettino was also quizzed as to whether he thought Mourinho, who was sacked by Roma in January, could do a better job than he is doing as Chelsea manager.

He said: “I respect Jose. He’s my friend and he was amazing for this club. Circumstances are circumstances. We need to keep pushing, believing in us, and accept all the things that came from the fans. Of course, I respect the fans.

“You need to ask the players. If the players believe that with another coach they’ll do better, I am the first to say: ‘Hey, they can go and talk with the owner and the sporting director.’

“But do you see me worried about this? No. Look, is attitude a problem? No. They [the players] are clever enough; you can see in the way they behave and everything that they are behind us. There is no doubt.

“I came here because I knew that it was going to be tough but also knew we were going to need time and belief.”
