Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino slammed Manchester United legend Gary Neville after Chelsea’s 3-2 FA Cup victory over Leeds United on Wednesday.

Neville labelled Chelsea ‘billion-pound bottlejobs’ following the Carabao Cup final defeat to Liverpool on Sunday.

Mauricio Pochettino, speaking after Chelsea’s win against Leeds, told ITV: “I think if you are talking about my friend Gary [Neville], I think he was frustrated because Liverpool won another title. That is the truth.

“I think it’s not fair to accuse people in this way, with a team that’s very young. The expectation is massive because we are Chelsea but this team needs to build and build the confidence.

“The unity is starting to grow, it’s not magic, you can’t just create it.”

In his post-match press conference, Mauricio Pochettino added: “Gary, my friend, what you did… his opinion is going around and around.

“Of course, I cannot agree with that. With all my love to Gary, it’s not fair to use these type of words. This club always fights for big things.”
