Joe Cole stands in support of Mauricio Pochettino

Former Chelsea star Joe Cole has come forward to support current Argentine coach Mauricio Pochettino, despite uncertainty over Pochettino's future.

But rumors spread even after he took charge of the Blues this season. Cole also had a different view on TNT, saying: “I think he faces one of the toughest challenges in world football. It is clear that he lacks complete control over the entry and exit of players.

Changing coaches is not a good solution. All he needs is time.” Chelsea is currently ranked ninth in the English Premier League. It bid farewell to all domestic cup competitions and failed to qualify for next season’s European Championship.
