‘I will STOP their Winning STREAK. I promise them that’: Chelsea Manager Mauricio Pochettino sends strong premier league message to Arteta ahead of their CLASH
Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino is facing a dilemma ahead of their London derby with Arsenal next Saturday after watching one of his young players sparkle on international duty. The Blues boss will be watching on keenly as his players enjoy their two-week break with their respective nations, and Noni Madueke has already made a statement of his own with an eye-catching display for England’s Under-21s.
Madueke has featured for just 45 minutes in the Premier League this season and while he has been affected by injury of late, the 21-year-old has been used sparingly by Pochettino when he was match-fit.
He did score a penalty in the 2-1 win over AFC Wimbledon, only to receive a public rebuke after he was pictured out at a Mayfair nightclub while he was injured. And the Argentinian boss wasn’t too pleased at the time, telling him he needed to be more professional.
It is clear. This video, we were talking about that with him. I think it is a thing that we need to avoid,” Pochettino told reporters. “All the players need to know that when we are a player of Chelsea to try to avoid these things. It wasn’t a big issue but we always need to avoid these types of situations.
