Since joining Chelsea, Cole Palmer has said that Mauricio Pochettino’s man management abilities have brought out the best in him, calling the Argentinean “amazing.”
Cole Palmer, the 21-year-old has been the Blues’ star player since joining from Manchester City in the summer, scoring 10 Premier League goals and assisting six times.
In Monday night’s 3-1 victory over Crystal Palace, the England international scored two more goals for his teammates, solidifying his place in the starting lineup.
It has been an amazing comeback for Palmer with the Blues, and he credits Pochettino for his work with him. Prior to arriving to Stamford Bridge, Palmer had never scored a Premier League goal.
Palmer told Standard Sport, “Every day the manager helps us all.” Simply said, it’s brief exchanges of instructions.
He is a huge supporter of us, and the management deserves praise for keeping us together. Right from the beginning, he has been incredible with me.
Yes, I’m enjoying it. When I first came in, he just placed his arm around me and gave me the freedom and confidence to go outside and play.
Chelsea has had a terrible season in terms of consistency, but two straight 3-1 road victories over Aston Villa and the Eagles have given them more confidence.
Palmer claims that by communicating their way through challenging times, the team and management have improved.
We do meet, and [Pochettino] has faith in us,” he remarked. “We have confidence in ourselves, but if you’re not feeling well, people will talk.” All we have to do is attempt to ignore it and concentrate on ourselves.
You understand the nature of football fans, there’s a lot of chatter, and for good reason. Being a large club, Chelsea has a lengthy history of success. They will turn the tables on us if we don’t show results. However, I believe you’ve seen from the last two games that we’re making an effort to remain unified in our growth and to continue playing as a team.
The Blues were trailing 1-0 after a goal by Jefferson Lerma at Selhurst Park, but Pochettino claimed that a conversation at halftime had changed the game.
Our head coach said, “I was very disappointed with the performance after the first 45 minutes.” However, that is the difficulty in each and every game. We had a great game against Aston Villa, but after the first forty-five minutes, you’re left feeling let down.
We spoke at halftime that we shouldn’t play or approach a game in this manner. We couldn’t perform this way because we were so flat.
We had a great start to the second half, but it was a challenging game overall. In the end, I’m really happy because, even though we didn’t play the full 45 minutes as planned, this kind of game helps us to develop our confidence, analyse the situation, and get ready to play consistently.
