Pochettino Drops Bombshell, says “It’s a problem to motivate Chelsea players”

Mauricio Pochettino

Mauricio Pochettino, Chelsea’s manager, has stated that motivating his players for the rest of the season will be “a problem.”

The Blues’ last chance for a trophy this season was squandered in the FA Cup by Manchester City on Saturday, and they couldn’t recover in their midweek Premier League match against Arsenal, which they lost 5-0.

They still have a chance to qualify for European play, though, sitting six points behind Newcastle United in seventh and seven points behind Manchester United in sixth.

The west London team has two games in hand on both Newcastle and Manchester United.

“We think that we are responsible to motivate players, why? It’s difficult to accept. If you play for Chelsea that motivation is there, even if you play in a friendly,” Pochettino said.

“If you don’t have motivation it is difficult. If you ask me that we need to motivate players for the next game, then we have a problem.

“I don’t believe that is the problem – the problem is to have the capacity to perform. We can’t give them the excuses not to perform, but at the same time we are people, we are not a machine and with some circumstances you lose the reference of those things a little bit.”
