‘Tremendous’ Following fruitful conversations with Pochettino, a Chelsea player now feels relevant at the club.
Marc Cucurella, a defender for Chelsea, feels significant once more at Stamford Bridge.
That is what a Sport report claims.
It states that Marc Cucurella met with Mauricio Pochettino favorably at the start of the current campaign after his failed transfer to Manchester United, and that he is now starting to feel appreciated at Stamford Bridge.
The left-back, who played sparingly at the beginning of the season, has seen plenty of action recently and has started each of Chelsea’s last three games.
Cucurella is now playing at right-back, so it will be fascinating to see what happens when Pochettino has both Reece James and Malo Gusto available again.
Marc Cucurella might be crucial for the remainder of the campaign.
Pochettino might not have James for all of Chelsea’s remaining games if he does get an injury.
Ben Chilwell, who is now sidelined due to injury, is the same. When you take it into account, along with recent events like Gusto’s suspension, Cucurella may still have a significant impact this season.
If Chilwell and James are able to maintain their fitness, perhaps not. But their most current injury statistics reveal that is a big if.
Cucurella was once referred to as a “tremendous player” by Brighton & Hove Albion owner Tony Bloom, so Chelsea could be wise to stick onto him.
However, a lot may rely on what the 25-year-old desires. Once the transfer market reopens, the Blues could have to let him go if he wants to play with guaranteed minutes in his preferred position.
