Pochettino Hails Chelsea’s 'Renewed Spirit'

In an extraordinary 5-0 triumph over West Ham on Sunday, London side, Chelsea showcased a resurgence highlighted by goals from Cole Palmer, Conor Gallagher, and Noni Madueke in the opening half and a brace by Nicolas Jackson in the latter stage.

Africa Today News, New York reports that Chelsea has struggled throughout the season, but their recent performance—having only lost once in their previous 12 Premier League games—has propelled them to seventh position in the standings.

Mauricio Pochettino, the manager, identified Noni Madueke’s selfless assist for Jackson’s goal as a pivotal moment that demonstrated the team’s growth and unity.

Reflecting on earlier criticisms faced, Pochettino stressed the significance of learning from setbacks and commended the team’s growing unity and belief.

Addressing reporters in the post-match press conference, Pochettino remarked: “Noni’s assist to Jackson epitomises our capacity to adapt and evolve. It encapsulates unity and progress within the squad. It’s a testament to the principles we’ve instilled, and it’s rewarding to witness the team rallying together and embracing these principles.”

In another report, Borussia Dortmund’s sporting director, Sebastian Kehl has declared that the club “will try everything” to keep Manchester United loanee Jadon Sancho beyond the end of the season.

Sancho, who has a contract until 2026, returned to Dortmund on a six-month loan in January. He made his name at Dortmund before a big-money move to the Premier League in 2021.

The England international has had a difficult time at United and had only played three matches off the bench after falling out with manager Erik ten Hag earlier in the season.

After a slow start, Sancho has impressed in recent weeks and was outstanding in Dortmund’s 1-0 Champions League semi-final first-leg win over Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday.

Speaking with German news outlet Welt, Kehl said Sancho had “found his smile again here”.
