Pochettino seeks Chelsea backing to tranform club's fortunes

Pochettino seeks Chelsea backing to tranform club's fortunes

Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino admits that the decision to remain at the club would not be dependent on him after his team's inspiring 2-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge on Thursday night. 

The former Spurs coach has overseen an inconsistent season at Stamford Bridge hampered by injuries, illness and poor performances by the players. 

Pochettino while speaking to the media at his post match press conference stated that he would need time to transofrm the fortunes of the former Emglish and European champions.

"Maybe today because we won I can explain a little bit better. I want to say enough is enough, I think all managers need time to translate their ideas and their philosophy. We need to have time, but it is not my decision.'

Asked to explain more on the subject, the Argentine added: 'I don't know. It's difficult to see every single week that I am under scrutiny and judgement. Yes, it's not my decision to be here or not to be here."

On whether he could transform Chelsea into serious title contenders or a Champions League force if he was backed, the former PSG boss was evasive in his response.

"I cannot tell you. I can say nothing. If we want to match the history of Chelsea I think there is a lot of work to do. We will see if we have time to build this way."

"I am so, so proud of the guys, all the squad we have - 25, 27 players. I work for them. We want the best for them. Until the last day we are going to work for them.'

Pochettino continued: "It was fantastic, full credit to the players. It is my first time in the season I really do feel so, so happy. It is the moment after 10 months the team really starts to realise how we need to compete. Today we competed really well against a great team.

"(We may need) some luck to have this type of result, it helps give belief to the players that this is the way." he concluded.

The Blues are now 8th on the Premier League table.
