Pochettino ‘felt the loneliness’ after Wolves home defeat


Chelsea have the chance to secure European qualification tomorrow, which seemed a long way off after their 4-2 home defeat by Wolves in February.

And boss Mauricio Pochettino has revealed he feared being sacked after that game, with his team having been booed off after a seventh defeat in 14 Premier League games left the Blues 11th in the table.

Asked if he ever believed he was about to be dismissed, Pochettino said: “I think after Wolves. It was a tough moment that defeat at home. In this moment, when you are a coaching staff you feel the loneliness.

“You feel like everyone is seeing you like you’re guilty of something that you don’t know. We felt the loneliness. We were alone after the game, waiting. I think we spent two hours [in the stadium]. That was the longest time after a game that we were there, looking between us in a very small room.

“We were more sad than thinking we would be sacked. It was an unfair situation. It was a situation we didn’t deserve.”

Asked whether he could see a way out after the Wolves loss, Pochettino added: “Not really. The problem was the circumstances [with injuries]. They were really, really bad.”
