This Chelsea star doesn’t know what to do in Pochettino’s team
ESPN pundit, Luis Miguel Echegaray has questioned whether Moises Caicedo is actually aware of what his role is under Mauricio Pochettino’s Chelsea.
Caicedo picked up a rare assist during Chelsea’s Premier League clash with Wolves on Sunday, but that was pretty much the best that he did, as his performance just went downhill from that point.
Aside from giving away the ball too many times, Caicedo was also guilty of making unnecessary tackles, and winning free kicks for Wolves in dangerous areas of the pitch until his substitution later in the second half.
The home crowd at Stamford Bridge were visibly disappointed with how their team performed, and booed them as they lost 4-2 in their own backyard.
For a player that was reportedly signed for £115m, Caicedo has done a very poor job of being a great holding midfielder for Chelsea, and that has led to many questions being raised about his abilities, especially as it concerns understanding his role in Pochettino’s side.
Speaking after the loss to Wolves on Sunday, Echegaray said of the Ecuadorian on ESPN: “I don’t think, at this point, Caicedo knows exactly what he needs to do next to Enzo Fernandez.
“And that’s a worry, especially when you have somebody like Mauricio Pochettino, a very experienced, Spanish-speaking manager who should be able to help him. It’s a massive worry for Chelsea right now.”
Caicedo reportedly smashed his seat in anger after his substitution on Sunday afternoon, but hopefully, he’s able to channel the pain and disappointment into working harder towards being a better player for Chelsea.
