Nicolas Jackson shows true feelings towards Mauricio Pochettino after Chelsea sack boss

After just one season as Chelsea’s manager, Mauricio Pochettino departed, and Nicolas Jackson, a striker for the Blues, was quick to share his farewell message on social media.

Nicolas Jackson, a forward for Chelsea, expressed his dissatisfaction after the team revealed manager Mauricio Pochettino is leaving Stamford Bridge.

After taking over at Chelsea last summer, the Argentine—who had previously managed Tottenham Hotspur—led his team to a sixth-place Premier League result. Chelsea finished five points short of a Champions League spot after winning just one of their last 15 league games, a loss to Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal, despite a difficult start.

Jackson, who has flourished under Pochettino’s guidance during a difficult season, posted a photo of the departing coach on Instagram along with two facepalm emojis. He expressed his feelings about Pochettino’s departure in a series of posts, including his best wishes for the coach’s future.

“Love you, coach,” the Senegalese forward wrote. “Wish we could spend more time together. However, may God keep blessing you and your loved ones. I appreciate your guidance and encouragement; you are a real fighter and lion. Best wishes.”

Jackson also reshared a November Instagram post from Pochettino, after Chelsea had just celebrated a thrilling 4-4 draw with Manchester City and a 4-1 win over Tottenham. Jackson scored four goals in those games.

The caption on Pochettino’s post said, “Very proud and happy of the players for the attitude and results they have produced in two difficult fixtures during this week.” “Having this feeling as we head into an international break is incredibly satisfying, but I wish we could play another game sooner!

“We aim to create something exceptional at Chelsea FC, and this is precisely how we want the players to behave and experience themselves. We have already experienced some highs and lows this season, and the players are demonstrating to everyone their ability to compete against any team. We are grateful to each and every one of you for your unwavering support of the team.”

Jackson finished with 14 goals and five assists for the season, including a hat-trick against Spurs and a goal against City. The former Villarreal star was greatly impacted by Pochettino, but a new manager will need to have the same effect.

“We would like to thank Mauricio for his service this season on behalf of the entire Chelsea team. In a joint statement following Pochettino’s departure, Chelsea’s sporting directors Laurence Stewart and Paul Winstanley stated, “He will be welcome back to Stamford Bridge any time and we wish him all the very best in his future coaching career.”

“Thank you to the Chelsea ownership group and Sporting Directors for the opportunity to be part of this football club’s history,” said Pochettino in his own words of gratitude. The Club is now in a strong position to continue growing in the upcoming years in both the Premier League and Europe.”
