‘Mouricio Pochettino lacks experience managing a large team; if he did, why would he bench a player like him when trying to win against Brentford, who have won five straight at home under Ivan Toney?’ Mikel Arteta, the manager of Arsenal, calls Pochettino a “BABY COACH” for leaving the £75 million player off the field during yesterday’s draw with Brentford.

'Mouricio Pochettino lacks experience managing a large team; if he did, why would he bench a player like him when trying to win against Brentford, who have won five straight at home under Ivan Toney?' Mikel Arteta, the manager of Arsenal, calls Pochettino a "BABY COACH" for leaving the £75 million player off the field during yesterday's draw with Brentford.

Mauricio Pochettino has received a warning from Chelsea legend John Obi Mikel regarding his future at Stamford Bridge. Despite Pochettino’s success in cup competitions, Chelsea is still in the middle of the standings, which has put a lot of pressure on the Blues manager in his first season on him.

Just a few days after losing to Liverpool in the Carabao Cup final, Chelsea defeated Leeds United last week to move on to the FA Cup quarterfinals. The Blues will play Leicester City in the following round after avoiding teams like Manchester City and Liverpool in the draw.

Winning the competition might be Chelsea’s only chance to guarantee European football for the upcoming season, as there are 17 points separating them from the top four and nine from the top six. Mikel discussed Chelsea’s chances of winning the European Championship before discussing Pochettino’s tenure in west London.

Naturally, he said to Standard Sport, “the top four is out of reach.” “We need to improve and get on a winning streak before I think that qualifying for the Europa League would be a huge improvement.” Achieving the Europa League would be an amazing feat, and we can continue from there. It was a huge letdown to end.

Pochettino might not be the only person pushing Chelsea to qualify for Europe if they do, as Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali are expected to make decisions about their futures this summer. Given this, Mikel shared his opinions about Pochettino’s status with the team, including a distasteful revelation.

“While we were playing for Chelsea and we weren’t winning, we went through the same things—being criticized and watching managers lose their jobs—so some of the criticism has been over the top,” he said. This is Chelsea. You have to win.
Games and trophies must be won. Yes, we’ve given them more time, but that extra time has helped them improve as players, bond, and hone their skills.
