I can’t beat it. I’m annoyed, too! Cancel dinner with my wife?… ‘I wrote Group 1, but try to rank 11th.’

March 11, 2024 | by

Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino seems to have been very uncomfortable because of the team’s draw. He also made an appointment with his wife for dinner.

British football media “Tribal Football” said on the 10th (Korea time), “Pochettino said he canceled dinner with his wife after a draw against Brentford.” Chelsea played a Premier League round 27 away game against Brentford on the 3rd and drew 2-2.

Chelsea is showing a very sluggish performance this season. The club has spent a whopping 1 billion euros (1.441 trillion won) to strengthen its squad since the summer of 2022, but has produced disappointing results in both last and this seasons.

Last season, he finished 12th with only 440 points, and this season also remains 11th in the league with only 36 points so far.

Therefore, Pochettino, who took charge of Chelsea last summer, is facing a crisis of replacement for the first time in a year.

Until January, there was news that Chelsea’s leadership would decide on Pochettino’s future after the season, but as time has passed, there has been no significant change in Chelsea’s performance, news continues to be reported that the leadership is also holding the strand by reversing its existing position and replacing it. Britain’s “The Guardian” recently said, “We do not intend to replace Pochettino right away, but we are preparing in case their thoughts change.”

For this reason, the recent draw with Brentford is unacceptable. In particular, considering that Brentford is at the bottom of the league’s 15th place, Chelsea should have won and won all three points. Nevertheless, Chelsea was dragged around by giving up its lead over Brentford.

Chelsea, which had Nicola Jackson’s first goal in the 35th minute of the first half at the time, lost points to Mads Röslev and Joan Wissar of Brentford in the 5th minute and 24th minute of the second half, leading the team to a 1-2 lead. Fortunately, defender Axel Dissassi’s equalizer in the 38th minute of the second half saved face. 퀸알바

Pochettino is very disappointed with the result. According to Tribal Football, Pochettino said, “The draw against Brentford was like a defeat. I was very disappointed because I cancelled my dinner. I was not in the mood to go out for dinner and said I wanted to stay home.”

“Luckily, I was with the coaches. After the game, I watched a game between Real Madrid and Valencia and drank wine,” he said. “It wasn’t that much fun. I just watched more soccer.”

“I’ve been watching soccer for the past few days as well. Not only did I watch Champions League and second division games, but I also watched Asian Champions League (ACL). It was a match between Al Hilal and Al-Itihad and Al Ain and Al Nasr. I kept watching different games,” he said.

If the team’s performance is not good, the coach’s family atmosphere is not good either. In particular, the manager’s position in Paris is not a strange position no matter when he is fired.

Pochettino also said, “My wife is not very happy right now,” but added, “But I know the atmosphere is not good as a whole right now. If the atmosphere is not good (due to grades), the family is also struggling.”

Meanwhile, various media outlets have decided on Pochettino’s replacement and are speculating on the next coach candidate. For example, he is focusing on Coach Huweng Amoring, who is currently leading Portugal’s prestigious Sporting CP.

Pochettino is clinging to Chelsea’s performance by giving up on family peace, but attention is focusing on whether the result will be produced within this season or replaced without even showing it. Chelsea will return to the league schedule with a home game against Newcastle United on the 12th.
