Levi Colwill now aims to fulfill Pochettino’s desire at Chelsea
Chelsea defender Levi Colwill has been speaking about his dynamic with manager Mauricio Pochettino.
Levi Colwill told Chelsea’s official website that he has a good relationship with Mauricio Pochettino and also shared the one thing he wants to do for his boss.
The Argentine has put a lot of trust in the youngster this season. He has made him a regular starter and in a position that he was not even familiar with before the campaign kicked off.
In total, the central defender has made 23 appearances, with most of them coming at left-back.
Colwill has also captained Chelsea on one occasion, which actually surprised the 20-year-old, showing Pochettino’s trust in him.
Levi Colwill discusses relationship with Mauricio Pochettino
Colwill says there is a lot of trust between him and Pochettino and the England international is determined to win matches for his manager.
Speaking about their relationship, he said: “He is a good guy and I have a good relationship with him. It’s one based on trust; that’s a big part of it. I trust him and he trusts me. So we keep on building that relationship and hopefully, we can get the wins for him.”
Levi Colwill paying back Mauricio Pochettino’s faith
Colwill has not really done anything too costly for Chelsea this season, so it is probably fair to say that he has not let his manager down.
The defender has been given an opportunity in the first team after a couple of loan spells and has really taken it.
It probably helps that he is not facing any competition for that left-back position right now with Ben Chilwell and Marc Cucurella both out. However, even when they were available, Colwill was still holding down his spot.
Going forward, though, it looks like the Chelsea academy product is expecting to play in central defence.
