Pochettino unhappy with Christmas Eve game, will miss wedding anniversary

Pochettino unhappy with Christmas Eve game, will miss wedding anniversary

Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino has expressed his displeasure at his side’s scheduling of an away game against Wolves on Christmas Eve and revealed that it will affect his personal life.

“Our fans are not happy and I am not happy,” Pochettino said. “The 23rd is my wedding anniversary and I need to travel to Wolves, so I can’t spend the night at home. In addition, the 24th is a very important night for the Argentines and I wanted to be in time to celebrate with my family.”

“It’s not easy to change the game time, but we need to accept it. We’re in England and it’s different here from the rest of the world. I need to adapt and even if I’m not happy, I need to try to do my best to get the team to be at its best. It’s a situation we can’t change.”

Chelsea are the only team to play away on Christmas Eve, with the rest of the 18th round of fixtures taking place between December 21st and 23rd. That includes West Ham United’s match against Manchester United on Dec. 23 at 1:30 p.m. in London.

Chelsea will look to continue their recent good form when they take on Brentford in the English Premier League on Saturday. Mauricio Pochettino has had a difficult start to his tenure at Stamford Bridge, but his side have won all of their last three games and drew 2-2 with Arsenal last weekend. Chelsea moved up to 10th in the Premier League table but are eight points behind the top four after nine games.
