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

The Ecuadorian struggled initially to do well at Chelsea, and was even criticised by Chelsea fans and pundits.

However, Caicedo later turned things around, and was very instrumental as Chelsea’s form picked up towards the end of the season.

Speaking to Alfonso Laso, Caicedo confessed he struggled to deal with the mental pressure that came with his high price tag at Chelsea, and his agent had to employ a performance coach who really helped his game, as he understood his mistakes and improved.

“At the beginning, some fans attacked us a little bit because we weren’t doing well, any of the new signings, so they attacked us,” he said.

“It was difficult for me because at the start I preferred playing away games over home games, because at home, it felt like everyone was attacking me. But I always had the support of Pochettino.

“In February, my agent hired someone to help me position myself better. After I finished a game, we always watched it back to see what I could improve on. He also helped with my mind, how to work under pressure…

“I was more aware that I had to do things because they paid a lot of money for me, I always have to do things right. That bothered me. I couldn’t concentrate, I couldn’t show my level, so my agent hired this new person, and little by little I gained more confidence and took more risks.

“He told me it didn’t matter how much Chelsea paid for me because they know what I am worth. From there, I began to loosen up a little.”
