Pochettino bizarrely moans ‘You can’t buy confidence in supermarket’ amid crisis



MAURICIO POCHETTINO admits Chelsea’s current crisis is worse than expected and moaned: “You cannot buy confidence in the supermarket.”

The shopaholic Blues have won once in the Prem this season, not scored in their last three games and are 14th — despite a £1BILLION transfer splurge.

Boss Mauricio Pochettino has admitted he is more frustrated than he 'anticipated' as he tries to resolve Chelsea's huge problems

And boss Pochettino declared: “This period in the last weeks is a worse scenario than we anticipated.

“We knew a new project is always difficult. But the problem with confidence is we cannot buy it in the supermarket.

“It is about time. It is about, little by little, creating situations that can provide confidence and belief.”


Poch also claims everything has been against Chelsea — and that they deserve better results.

Wednesday’s Carabao Cup clash at home to Brighton is the Blues’ last chance to break their September scoring duck.

And the Argentine, 51, added: “We are suffering. All teams go through different periods, maybe for us it happened early.

“Nobody had expected this situation. We can’t talk about excuses but a bit of bad luck is the reality.

“It looks like all is against us because when you see the performances, we deserve more points.”


Chelsea have EIGHT injured stars — including skipper Reece James and new-boys Christopher Nkunku and Romeo Lavia.

Malo Gusto is suspended for three games following a straight red in Sunday’s 1-0 defeat by Aston Villa while striker Nicolas Jackson is banned for Monday’s trip to Fulham after picking up FIVE yellow cards.


Poch insists he has no issue with the owners visiting the dressing room after matches — but claims it is not their job to dish out speeches.

Todd Boehly and co-owner Behdad Eghbali went to see the players following Sunday’s loss to Villa.

Boehly spoke to the team several times last season, notably after a 2-1 defeat by Brighton in April when he told them their season had been “embarrassing.”

Poch added: “I like it when the owners come in. It’s good.

“The way they approach the players is most important. If it is in a good way, they’re welcome.

“It’s not a job of the owner to give a speech after the game, win or lose. But they know very well how they need to behave.”
