Pochettino speaks on the form of Noni Madueke
Following an explosive performance from Noni Madueke on the pitch for Chelsea on Wednesday, December 27, 2023, The Blues' head coach Mauricio Pochettino has shared his thoughts on the performance of the England international.
Poch in his post-match press conference stated, "I said it was Conor, but I said to Conor if Noni was more confident you can give him the penalty,’ Pochettino explained. ‘You have to be confident in that moment. I am so happy because a player who comes from the bench needs to show this character and this hunger. He showed he was ready to take the opportunity. He played free. He did what we needed in this moment. I liked it because he showed he was disappointed with me because he didn’t play too much."
Speaking on how the team played, Pochettino stated, "When you come from a not nice result, it’s always a difficult moment to play. It was really tough, but I’m pleased with the performance overall. We didn’t start well; we were a little bit nervous and struggled because we were thinking too much about a game we really needed to win. We created chances to score, we scored, but I wasn’t so happy we conceded in the last minute. The second half we started well again, played a bit more, and I’m so happy the players from the bench had such a good impact."
