Chelsea legend Didier Drogba gives verdict on Pochettino’s job

Chelsea legend Didier Drogba has asked for time to be given to current Blues manager Mauricio Pochettino.

Drogba believes Pochettino has what it takes to turn things around at Chelsea.

“I think they’ve got good strikers. I think it’s not an easy moment for the club, but they have my support and my trust because Chelsea is still Chelsea,” Drogba told Sky Sports.

“Those kids, those young players, they came to Chelsea because we created a legacy and they want to be part of this legacy.

“Unfortunately there’s no time in football, but they will need time to adjust. You have to remember that when I joined Chelsea, this group of players were 24-27, we’re already there, ready for the game, they’re still learning, still young, they’re 22-24.

“Give them time and when they reach their peak, people will be like, ‘wow, this is the new generation, the best team Chelsea ever had!’

“It’s just a matter of time. I hope the vision will be quite similar as what we had when Roman Abramovich took the club.”
