Mauricio Pochettino speaks out on Chelsea sack

After losing the League Cup final to Liverpool, there is very little Chelsea have left to play for this term.

They remain in the FA Cup for now but are not expected to win the competition, while their league form throughout the campaign so far suggests they will be lucky to even land a Europa Conference League spot.

As pressure builds on Pochettino, he was quizzed about the growing discontent among the Chelsea fanbase post-Brentford and had this to say: “We need to accept. I told you, I think someone asked me do you feel the love from the fans? No. We need to build our relationship between the coaching staff, the coach and the fans.

“You build relationships by winning games. But at the moment, the expectation, we cannot match the expectation. We are going to ask for love. I don’t ask for nothing. I am going to continue to work and try to change this situation and change, winning games, we now have one week before Newcastle.

“We need to manage the reality. We are working really, really hard to try and win games. The team is fighting. I think in six days, we played 120 minutes on Sunday, Wednesday was another tough game, then some decisions because of injuries or some circumstances.

“We tried to find different ways to play. But if that doesn’t work and the fans are disappointed with that, I need to respect their opinions.”
