Chelsea boss Pochettino responds to claims he ignored Todd Boehly

There was a video making rounds after the Carabao Cup final defeat to Liverpool. The video depicts Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino snubbing owner, Todd Boehly.

Pochettino has played down such talks, as he reveals he has a good relationship with the Chelsea owner.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference on Tuesday, Pochettino claimed there was no rift between him and the owners, saying: ‘Yes [I feel the support of the board].

“After the game, Todd sent a really nice message.

“We were talking and I said hello when I saw them in the stadium. I met Behdad [Eghbali, co-owner] after and we were talking, we were talking.

“We were sharing the opinion of the game, we were talking about the opportunity we missed to win a trophy because we played really well in 90 minutes. We were not clinical enough.

“Of course we are so disappointed, Chelsea is about to win. Liverpool spent four years, [Jurgen] Klopp didn’t win a title but got the support from the club. Now they are getting what they deserve because of that.

“For us, after seven or eight months, to get to the final is a massive achievement in this project.”
