Mauricio Pochettino admits that his players “need to improve” in honest admission

Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino has admitted that his players ‘need to improve’ in an honest admission this afternoon.

The Blues boss has been speaking ahead of tomorrow evening’s match against Manchester United where The Blues welcome Eric Ten Hag’s side to Stamford Bridge for the Premier League clash.

EXCLUSIVE! Chelsea send scouts to watch striker on international break!

Both sides have been struggling with inconsistencies this season, with Chelsea being worse off than United. But gone are the days when this would be a huge and exciting title race match. These two big clubs have really fallen of lately.

Pochettino has been getting a lot of stick and criticism, which for me is completely justified. But he has been speaking about how his players also need to improve quick, and trying to explain the importance of turning out for Chelsea and playing for the badge.

SPTC have the quotes from today’s pre-match press conference, and we can hone in on those comments below.

Pochettino said: “We were talking a lot during the game. I agree with you on the body language. We are Chelsea, but we need to behave like Chelsea, we need to behave like we want to belong to a big club. We need to defend our badge and to play for our club and to perform. I try to describe after the game in my press conference our feelings and in the next few days, I started to realise. We talk about potentially amazing players, they are young and need to realise they need to improve so quick. The demand is so high from the Premier League and from the club.”

  1. He’s dead right that the collective youth is the bulk of the problem. And Poch can’t just will this group across the line. They’ve got to figure it out themselves. It’s maddening as a fan to see the potential unrealised, but it’s a critical part of the growth of each player for them to struggle and figure it out on their own. The most we can as “supporters” is to SUPPORT them in the process and to quit this incessant, counterproductive rush to judge them all failures!
