Unseen footage of Nicolas Jackson being slaughtered by Chelsea teammate after Cole Palmer penalty emerges

Previously unseen footage of Nicolas Jackson seemingly being slaughtered by his Chelsea team-mate has emerged after the Cole Palmer penalty debacle.

Jackson and Noni Madueke were involved in a heated argument over who should take a spot-kick in the Blues’ 6-0 win over Everton, only for regular penalty taker Cole Palmer to take the ball and score his fourth goal of the game.

The bizarre 60-second confrontation, which also saw Thiago Silva and Conor Gallagher interject in a bid to defuse the situation, infuriated Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino.

Footage has now emerged of a moment in the game’s aftermath, where Moises Caicedo appeared to be berating Jackson for his involvement in the penalty debacle. You can watch it below.

Meanwhile, in his post-match interview, Chelsea boss Pochettino apologised to fans for his players’ behaviour.

He said: “It is a shame. We cannot behave in this way, I told them ‘this is the last time of this behaviour’.

“It is impossible to have this type of behaviour after this performance. If we want to be a great team, we need to change and think in a collective way.

“It’s a process for a young team who need to learn a lot. I was talking about this to the players after the game. It’s the last time I want to see something like this. I want to apologise to the fans.

“We need to make clear next time that happens. They need to learn and be professional. We need to be focused on the collective. They knew it was Cole. Cole is the taker. It’s a clear example that it’s a process we still need to learn.”

Pochettino added when asked if Madueke and Jackson would be punished and if they apologised: “No [there will be no punishment]. It’s about learning. They are young guys.

“Remember Burnley? No one wanted to take and he [Palmer] showed the personality… The discipline is going to be more strong. If they behave like a kid? Here it’s impossible. It’s a shame and unacceptable thing.

“I think we all agreed this behaviour cannot happen again and they were wrong… We are like in a school now to show they were wrong and they need to learn. If they don’t learn after we will take some decisions. Now it’s about to learn and use this type of experience to move on and be better.”
