Pochettino: Chelsea Will Never Park The Bus Under My Reign

Pochettino: Chelsea Will Never Park The Bus Under My Reign

Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that the team will never be defensive in their approach regardless of the opponent they come against in the Premier League.

Recall that the Blues have found goals a little easier to come by in recent weeks, compared to the early part of the season.

However, in a chat with the club’s official website, Pochettino stated that he will continue to maintain his attacking approach to games despite the team conceding goals and dropping points.

“In the last seven or eight games we didn’t lose in the Premier League. For me, the most important thing is to win games. Afterwards the priority will be to have a clean sheet and not to concede, but at the moment it is about to win games. We need three points.

“I want to keep the goal safe and not to concede chances or goals but it doesn’t work like this. If we are only thinking to have a clean sheet, then maybe we need to have 10 players more defensive and see in some transitions whether we can score one goal.

“But Chelsea, in my opinion, is about to go forward, create chances and to score goals. Because we have in the squad players that can attack in the last third, but in the end we need to behave in the same way when we don’t have the ball. We need to be more mature and more competitive and that is to manage and to deal with two phases in the same way.”

On parking the bus, he finished: “[Laughs] Nah. You need to translate to the players the philosophy, how you feel, how you are. We are a coaching staff working together for more than 14 years. It’s impossible for us to go and like you say ‘park the bus’.”
