Chelsea manager reveals about Jackson ready for match against Wolves

Wright Chelsea's Potter

In his pre-match press conference, Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino announced that Nicolas Jackson is ready to rejoin the first-team squad. He anticipates the player’s return following his participation in the African Cup of Nations and subsequent exit.

Certainly, Jackson’s absence has been notable since he started representing his country. Thus, leaving a void in the striker position for Chelsea this year.

Armando Broja was the sole available option. But his loan to Fulham for the season indicates a certain level of confidence. Pochettino hinted today that he has ample belief in youngster Deivid Washington, signaling his readiness to call upon him in the upcoming weeks.

What did Chelsea manager Pochettino say about Jackson’s status?

Chelsea manager Pochettino mentioned that unless there are unforeseen issues, Jackson is going to be part of the squad again starting this weekend.

Pochettino stated:  “We need to assess Nico. Today was his first training session with us. He didn’t play too much but was one month away. For sure, he will be there if nothing happens tomorrow with the squad.”

Chelsea aims to return to winning ways in the Premier League in their upcoming match against Wolves at Stamford Bridge. The team acknowledges the need for a significantly improved performance compared to their recent match against Liverpool earlier this week.

Chelsea faced a humbling defeat against the league leaders, and the standout positives were the performances of Djordje Petrovic and Christopher Nkunku. Jackson’s potential return could provide the all-around striker skills that the Blues have been notably lacking in recent weeks.
