Mauricio Pochettino’s jibes are retaliated against by Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel.


Mauricio Pochettino’s jibes are met with a retort from Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel.

Mauricio Pochettino described Chelsea as a “defensive team.”

After Mauricio Pochettino described the Blues as a ‘defensive team,’ the manager defended his playing style.

Tuchel’s team has one of the best defenses in Europe this season, but he has stated that such labels are too ‘complex’ to apply.

The West Londoners are currently in first place in the Premier League and have already qualified for the Champions League.

Only one of Chelsea’s four goals in the Premier League this season came in open play.

They’ve also only conceded once in Europe.

Chelsea advanced to the knockout stages after a 4-0 thrashing of Juventus on Tuesday night.

Antonio Rudiger, Cesar Azpilicueta, and Thiago Silva have all performed admirably for Chelsea this season.

Trevoh Chalobah, who scored the game’s first goal against Juve, and Andreas Christensen have stepped in when needed.

Despite scoring the most goals in their Champions League group and being the second-highest scorers in the Premier League, Pochettino, the manager of Paris Saint-Germain, referred to Chelsea as a “defensive team” earlier this week.

Pochettino, who has been linked with the Manchester United job, said, “Chelsea have a defensive team.”

“They play on the counter and in transition.”

Tuchel has refuted the claim, admitting that he ‘doesn’t care’ what Pochettino or anyone else has to say.

“I don’t pay attention to what other people say about us,” the German explained.

“I feel into my team and our staff with what we feel comfortable [with], and I’ve always felt very brave in our defending approach.”

“We had a lot of ball possession right away, so we tried to create chances and be dangerous.”

“Then a new season comes along, and we try to recreate it.”

The group is new, and things are like this; at times, things are a little easier, and you gain momentum.

“This is now undeniably the case, and full credit goes to the guys.”

“However, we aren’t too concerned with what others think of us.

We want to be dominant in every aspect of this game.

“It’s a very complicated game: you have some moments.”
