“We cannot put too much pressure on him” — Pochettino



"We cannot put too much pressure on him" -- Chelsea boss

In a hard-fought clash against Wolves, Christopher Nkunku marked his Premier League debut goal for Chelsea, yet the Blues suffered a 2-1 defeat at Molineux despite Mauricio Pochettino emphasizing the player’s importance and urging patience with his integration into the squad.

Nkunku’s momentous goal couldn’t salvage a win for Chelsea as Mario Lemina and Matt Doherty found the net for the hosts, sealing victory against the visitors.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino addressed the media post-match, acknowledging Nkunku’s scoring contribution and emphasizing the significance of the French international within the team.

“I’m very pleased to see Nkunku score, and it shows how important he can be for us,” Pochettino stated, highlighting the player’s potential impact.

However, Pochettino was quick to caution against burdening Nkunku with excessive pressure, considering his prolonged absence from competitive action.

“We cannot put too much pressure on him; he’s been out for a very long time,” Pochettino explained.

Nkunku made a 60-minute appearance, a strategic move by the manager to ease the player back into match fitness.
