Chelsea Hero Florent Malouda Criticizes Mauricio Pochettino’s Leadership
Former Chelsea player Florent Malouda has expressed his disappointment with the current state of the club under manager Mauricio Pochettino. Malouda believes that Pochettino should stop talking about a “project” at Stamford Bridge.
Underwhelming Performance under Pochettino
The Argentine coach took over from Graham Potter in the summer, marking his return to England since his departure from Tottenham in 2019. Despite significant financial investment, with Chelsea spending over £1 billion on transfers last summer, the team has had an inconsistent start to the season.
Chelsea currently sits in 10th place in the Premier League, having won four, drawn four, and lost four of their 12 matches. This underwhelming performance has left Malouda questioning the stability and direction of the club.
Malouda, who played for Chelsea for six years before leaving in 2013, expressed his disappointment with the current state of the club. He stated, “I don’t really recognize them, except for the color of the shirt. I think the club is using too many key words about the project or whatever. It takes time to build anything of value, but since the new ownership, I don’t see any stability from the management.”
Chelsea’s inconsistent performance under Pochettino has raised concerns among fans and former players like Malouda. The club will need to address these issues and find stability if they want to compete for titles in the future.
