Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino back Robert Sanchez for losing against Brentford


Mauricio Pochettino pointed out Robert Sanchez for the mistakes he did overall in this season. As he is looking not sufficient to handle goalkeeping duty.

The 25-year-old Spanish goalie joined Chelsea this summer for £25 million. He had experienced of 87 premier league games for Brighton.

Although he handed Arsenal a lifeline back in last weekend when his terrible kick settled Declan Rice to score into an empty net, and Chelsea ended up drawing a game they had been 2-0 up in.

Mauricio Pochettino on Robert Sanchez

Despite the fact that Robert Sanchez three good saves against Brentford but he was too much poor to make accurate passes.

He only had 12 accurate passes with the ratio of 52%. So far Chelsea lost to Bees 0-2 at stamford bridge.

Chelsea had a run of four unbeaten matches and it was their best yet for this season.

Before the match averse to Brentford, The Chelsea manager said: “Robert is very relaxed, very calm. He is very good. We are there to try and help. We are helping him. He knows, we know, football is about mistakes.”

“The responsibility is with the whole team, and the coaching staff is the first. We transmit the idea of how we want to play. To blame someone is to blame us – myself – but not him. Robert is delivering what we want and of course, maybe you can miss a penalty, you can miss a pass.”

He added: “When you are more confident, when the results are better and you are higher in the table, maybe you try to do different things or maybe take more risks, as you feel more confident and strong.”

“Robert is showing great character and personality. He is going to be good. I have no doubt about that.”

Although it regards that Pochettino just back his goalie and try to provide a moral to him. But the fact is crystal clear Sanchez looked shaky in several games this season. Hope he will find his full potential in next matches.
