Chelsea FC has begun its new cycle with the Argentine Mauricio Pochettino as coach, but without being able to achieve different results than the previous campaign, however, he has asked for patience and He has compared the situation of his young squad with the arrival of Zinedine Zidane to Real Madrid when he was a player.
This Sunday, the London team drew goalless against Bournemounth to place themselves in 15th place in the Premier League after five games, something that has attracted attention considering that The team made expensive signings such as that of the Ecuadorian Moises Caicedo, in addition to those made last year.
Given this, the Argentine coach recalled that most of his players are new and that the squad has been largely renewed, compared to what was at the end of the last campaign, so He asked for patience while the young people adapt and recalled that when Zidane arrived at the Santiago Bernabéu we also had to wait to see his best version.
“We have a young squad. When Real Madrid signed Zinedine Zidane, fans asked themselves: ‘What have we bought?’ And he started playing well after 7 or 8 months. You have to be careful when you bring young people. They are not machines,” said Mauricio Pochettino after finishing the game this Sunday.
For this campaign, the board of The ‘Blues’ did a deep cleaning in the locker room, leaving players like Christian Pulisic, Ngolo Kanté, Kepa Arrizabalaga, César Azpilicueta and five other players, so those vacancies had to be filled with new signings, most of them young.
To this, we must add that they are starting a new process, with a different technician and a different style of play, which requires a certain amount of time to adapt, but this is where it is. the problem for Pochettino since in a league like the Premier and a club like Chelsea, the results must be immediate and if you don’t get them you begin to live a race against the clock.
