Arsenal shifting their focus towards Real Sociedad‘s Martin Zubimendi

Pochettino insisted the Argentine is the best person to handle Palmer’s rise.

Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino wants Chelsea to trust him to handle Cole Palmer’s rising stardom. He has managed players like Harry Kane at Tottenham. He has helped them handle the pressures of becoming a hugely famous and full international player.

Palmer has been outstanding in his role, scoring 20 Premier League goals and 25 across all competitions since joining Chelsea from Manchester City.

Chelsea and Man City will meet in the semifinals of the FA Cup. Ahead of the game, Pochettino insisted the Argentine is the best person to handle Palmer’s rise.

Chelsea boss said, “He needs to deal with new things. It is not a criticism. It is about saying that they will appear – different things which he will need to deal with and manage and of course, he needs to know how to deal and learn how to deal with this new situation.”

“That is part of our job, as a coaching staff. That is the important thing. We need to help his environment. Him, but his environment also to understand how to deal.

“We have the experience as a coaching staff to deal with things like this. Also the club needs to trust in our judgement and assessment. The clubs need to trust. If they do not trust in us, it is difficult to work.”

Cole Palmer scored four goals in the previous game against Everton and the talented star would be a great asset for Chelsea to secure the place in another domestic cup final this season.

Pochettino added on Palmner, “It’s difficult to say a guy that has scored 25 goals in the season. It’s difficult to say, ‘oh you need to run more’, because he’s doing perfectly his job in an offensive situation.”

“But it’s true we are a coaching staff that we always demand more. ‘Yes you score, but you need to work. Yes you score, but you need to run when we don’t have the ball’. But he’s doing well.”
