JUST IN : What Mauricio Pochettino said about Chelsea and nottingham Forest match

Mauricio Pochettino, manager of Chelsea, has praised teenage talent Nicolas Jackson.
Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino stated in a recent news conference recorded by Football.London’ that he was pleased with the recent performance of new recruit Nicolas Jackson. Despite the fact that Chelsea lost their most recent encounter against Nottingham Forest, Pochettino was pleased with Jackson’s performance.

The Senegal international played the entire 90-minute match at Stamford Bridge just before the international break, losing 1-0. More crucially, he squandered two golden chances in the last third as the Blues were humiliated.

Pochettino also stated that Jackson needs to improve in several areas.

“I thought his performance was good, but he didn’t score.”

Pochettino stated that, while Jackson’s performance was commendable, a striker must either score or assist in order to have an impact on the game.

“As a striker, you need to score or assist, but we must remember that Jackson is from Spain, he is young, and he needs to build his confidence and trust.”

Pochettino, on the other hand, was sure that Jackson would only improve as he played more matches. He went on to say:

He must adjust to life in the Premier League. It’s just a question of time, but he’s doing an excellent job for the club. He needs to be more clinical in front of goal, but I believe that will develop. He is, without a doubt, a superb player.

Jackson joined Chelsea for a cost of £32 million from Villarreal in Spain. He made his Chelsea debut on August 13, 2023, in a 1-1 draw against Liverpool, and scored his first Chelsea goal in a 3-0 triumph against newly promoted Luton Town.

Jackson is part of a significant time of change for Chelsea, and it is unjust to place all of our scoring burden on his young shoulders. The Blues are currently primarily concerned on acquiring and developing young talent. And new manager Mauricio Pochettino has a track record of bringing out the best in young players.
Because of Christopher Nkunku’s ailments and Armando Broja’s lack of match fitness, we must continue to rely on the 22-year-old. Perhaps he wasn’t brought in to be a starter from the start, but he is the only natural striker we have right now, and he has showed flashes of greatness. His best work is still to come.
