Pochettino Continues Controversial Approach Tells Player to Skip Training


Mauricio Pochettino Reportedly Instructs Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Skip Pre-Season Training at Chelsea.

As per reports, Mauricio Pochettino has allegedly informed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang not to participate in the upcoming pre-season training. The Mirror suggests that the new Chelsea manager has subjected the 33-year-old striker to a similar fate as his teammate Romelu Lukaku.

Following a disappointing season at Stamford Bridge, Aubameyang’s future at the club remains uncertain, with a potential transfer on the horizon.

Less than 24 hours after Chelsea’s 2-2 draw with Everton. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang made an appearance at his former club Barcelona to celebrate their significant victory. This action, which occurred shortly after the match. Likely aggravated some individuals and strongly hinted at the conclusion of his Pochettino and chelsea tenure.

It appears that Pochettino is in determination to steer clear of such attitudes within his current squad. As he initiates preparations for the upcoming season.

Pochettino and his tactics

According to reports, the recently appointed manager has prevented Aubameyang from participating in pre-season training, similar to what he has done with Lukaku. It is evident that Lukaku has expressed his desire not to return to Chelsea. Although he has not yet finalized a deal for a potential departure this summer.

Lukaku remains optimistic that an agreement can be with Inter Milan, but as of now. The Serie A club has not presented an offer that meets Chelsea’s valuation for his services.

Following a request from former manager Thomas Tuchel. The striker was in recruits and featured in only one game before the German coach was sacked. Despite scoring crucial goals in the Champions League under Graham Potter’s leadership. The player’s playing time dwindled rapidly, and concerns arose regarding his off-field conduct.

Callum Hudson-Odoi, having spent the previous season on loan at Bayer Leverkusen, has reportedly communicated his desire to leave Stamford Bridge to the Chelsea hierarchy this summer. It is highly improbable that any of the prominent figures who have been in disregard by Pochettino will accompany the team on their pre-season tour to the USA. This marks the first time that Chelsea will embark on a summer tour in the United States.
