Chelsea signed up Moises Caicedo for a British transfer record fee of £115m.

The Ecuadorian struggled initially to do well at Chelsea, but later turned things around as Chelsea’s form picked up towards the end of the season.

Caicedo has now blamed Pochettino’s tactics for his initial struggles at Chelsea.

Speaking to Alfonso Laso, Caicedo opened up on transitioning from life under Roberto De Zerbi at Brighton to playing a different kind of football under Mauricio Pochettino.

Caicedo said: “With Pochettino, he was big on fitness. That was not the case at Brighton.

“When I arrived at Chelsea it was difficult because at Brighton it was all tactical, tactical, tactical, only with the ball. At Chelsea, it was running, so it was hard for me, but then I adapted little by little.

“It wasn’t good for me because the games are intense. At Brighton, we almost always had the ball, rarely turned it over. At Chelsea, the football was different, so we had to run more.”
