Mauricio Pochettino ‘frustrated’ with two Chelsea players as dressing room ‘leak’ reveals inside info, he’s had enough

Mauricio Pochettino is reportedly frustrated with two Chelsea stars after their disappointing season.

After spending huge money on the likes of Moises Caicedo, Nicolas Jackson and Cole Palmer during the summer transfer window, it was expected that Pochettino would lead Chelsea back towards the top of the Premier League.

However, the 23/24 season has been a huge disappointment for the Blues as they currently sit ninth in the league table, 16 points off fifth-placed Aston Villa and a huge 27 points adrift of leaders Arsenal.

Now, it has been claimed that Pochettino and his coaches have been left unimpressed by two of their players.

As reported by Football Insider, sources have told the publication that the Chelsea coaching staff are frustrated with a lack of impact from wingers Mykhailo Mudryk and Raheem Sterling.

Ukrainian winger Mudryk has only managed to record six goals and three assists in 33 appearances this season, which is less than expected after his £88 million move to the club in 2023.

In terms of Sterling, the England international has made 38 appearances across all competitions for Chelsea during the 23/24 campaign, managing eight goals and eight assists.

It has also been reported that as a result, Chelsea will be in the market for a new winger when the summer transfer window opens.

Over the last few weeks, Athletic Bilbao star Nico Williams has been linked with a summer move to Stamford Bridge.

Speaking after their 2-2 draw against bottom side Sheffield United, Pochettino said: “It is about being able to compete. For different reasons we are struggling to compete in these type of games [against lesser teams].

“Maybe [it is] because this group is not mature enough to compete in games every three days.”

He added: “It is a new team with profiles in the squad that we are learning,” said the Chelsea boss. “That is why the process to build a team always takes time. It is not a magic thing [clicks fingers].

“When we talk about projects, we talk about three or five years. It is a normal process but we are working to fix this type of problem. When we arrive at the end of the season, we need to analyse the squad to see what we are missing and try to add people with the capacity to provide [solutions for] what we are seeing today.”
