Mauricio Pochettino Disappointed with Conor Gallagher’s Red Card in Chelsea’s Win over Brighton
Chelsea secured a 3-2 victory over Brighton at Stamford Bridge, much to the satisfaction of Mauricio Pochettino. However, the manager expressed his disappointment with Conor Gallagher’s red card during the match.
Enzo Fernandez stole the show with two goals, but Gallagher’s actions marred the game. The midfielder received a second yellow card just before half-time for bringing down former Chelsea player Billy Gilmour.
Gallagher, who was captaining the team in the absence of Reece James, will now miss the upcoming match against Manchester United. Pochettino acknowledged that his young team’s lack of maturity is costing them.
When asked about the red card, Pochettino expressed his disagreement with the decision and called for better understanding between referees and teams. He emphasized the need for his young team to learn from these experiences and improve their discipline.
Despite the setback, Pochettino praised his team’s performance, particularly their strong start to the game. He acknowledged that conceding a goal just before half-time and Gallagher’s red card affected their momentum but remained proud of their overall display.
