In the aftermath of a shocking 4-2 defeat against Wolverhampton Wanderers, Chelsea’s manager Mauricio Pochettino publicly apologizes, admitting mistakes and expressing disappointment. The loss compounds pressure on Pochettino as Matheus Cunha’s hat-trick seals Wolves’ historic win.
Matheus Cunha emerged as the hero for Wolves, securing a historic victory with a remarkable hat-trick and marking their first Premier League double over Chelsea since 1974-75. Pochettino, acknowledging the significance of the defeat, addressed the fans with an apology.
“I want to apologise to the fans. It was a tough day for everyone – for the players, for us, and also for the fans,” expressed Pochettino. “We made some mistakes that you can’t afford to do in the Premier League, and we are all very disappointed.”
Pochettino continued, “We are disappointed like the fans, but until the end, we need to fight together as we are feeling the pressure. I don’t want to come here and say I’m the best. At the moment, we are not matching the history of the club. We are all not good enough, and this is the reality. Myself, also. What we are showing is that we are not good enough. No one can be safe, can they?”
The defeat saw Wolves leapfrog Chelsea in the standings, claiming 10th place and leaving Pochettino with a challenging task of regaining momentum. The consecutive games in which Chelsea conceded four goals have raised concerns among fans and pundits alike.
