Mauricio Pochettino has a talk with Moises Caicedo over his performance.


Chelsea head coach Mauricio Pochettino has talked to Moises Caicedo about his form at the Stamford Bridge this season. The Ecuador international arrived from Brighton and Hove Albion last summer with a record breaking deal of £115 million. However, Caicedo hasn’t been able to justify his price tag. The 22 year old defensive midfielder is having a tough time with the blues in his inaugural season. He has made 14 appearances for the club across all competitions this season so far. He’s not able to have a single assist or a goal till date. Moreover, absence of players like Reece James might force the coach to play him in the right back position which he did in his old club. However, Caicedo would find it difficult to get back into form playing as a defender as he’s already having a tough time in the mid line.

As per Chelseachronicle, Brighton head coach Roberto De Zerbi has recently admitted that he isn’t happy with Caicedo’s departure. This is because Caicedo was a main player for his club at the Amex Stadium. Both the player and the coach are unhappy with the player’s current situation at Chelsea. However, it’ll take time for the 22 year old to adapt to his new club.

What’s the discussion that Mauricio Pochettino has had with Caicedo?

Mauricio Pochettino has had a conversation with Moises Caicedo just before the club’s final press conference before their clash against Brighton. Moreover, the coach wanted to lift the pressure of the youngster’s head of living upto other’s expectations. The coach believes that only talent is not enough for a good performance. A player needs to be fit both mentally and physically in order to perform at higher levels. Furthermore, the coach understands that this is Caicedo’s first year at Chelsea and it’ll take time for the player to adapt to his new club.
