Joe Cole gives verdict on Pochettino’s performance as Chelsea manager

Has Pochettino done well at Chelsea so far? Joe Cole gives his verdict

Former Chelsea star Joe Cole has hailed the job done by Mauricio Pochettino so far.

Pochettino is yet to win over the Chelsea fans, but Joe Cole believes the Argentine has done a good job so far, as Chelsea are a team in transition.

Speaking to talkSPORT, Joe Cole asked for patience with Pochettino, as he stressed that it was a ‘transitional time’ for the club.

“It’s a transitional time for the club, we know that,” Cole said.

“There are young players and watching them develop, when I watch them play, I want to get on there with them. I want to help them.

“There is so much talent there, so much potential and I think Pochettino has done a great job because he’s constantly drilling that narrative: ‘You can’t look at this team like you would look at Chelsea teams of the past’.

“This is a team that is developing and the targets are different.”

The former England international added: “Poch is a top manager.

“[Graham] Potter was a top manager, Frank [Lampard] was a top manager, [Thomas] Tuchel was a top manager… I think you need time and they need to work with what they’ve got.”
