The Pride of London comment as reports now claim that star defender and club captain Reece James’s Chelsea future is much clearer amid a transfer rumour. Will the England international end up joining Real Madrid? Meanwhile, Blues boss Mauricio Pochettino says that his new job is more difficult than his former position with Tottenham Hotspur.
Blues fans should be delighted that Pochettino wishes to retain James during the January transfer window and for the foreseeable future. And, supposedly, CFC chiefs concur.
Chelsea Football Club will reportedly ‘not entertain’ any offers for their captain in the the New Year. That is, in spite of Real Madrid interest.
Mauricio Pochettino reveals that the Chelsea job is harder than his one-time Tottenham Hotspur role
Before Monday night’s game at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, media talk ramped up. The aspect which took most coverage, as opposed to players being the focal point, is the fact that Pochettino used to manage Spurs. Obviously the press were always going to go on and on about this ‘story’ – something that everyone is overly aware of. When ‘Poch’ confirmed he was sacked and didn’t leave by mutual consent or otherwise, he opened the door for more.
Like I say, Chels‘ are a fascinating club to cover at the moment: the west Londoners have many problems, alongside wealthy backing and a host of upcoming starlets. While the north London side are enjoying a splendid start to the campaign under Australian gaffer Ange Postecoglou.
Whilst the ex-boss chatter continues, the Argentine gave reporters further fodder to discuss. The current CFC manager believes that his role at Chelsea is tougher than his previous capacity at THFC. The 51-year-old argues that it is trickier to ‘perform’ with up-and-coming stars. Pochettino adds that pressure is then unnecessarily applied to his youthful squad.
