Chelsea boss confirms he won’t force Colville to play left-back.

Chelsea head coach Mauricio Pochettino has stressed that he has no ego about using professional centre-back Levi Colville as a left-back. Because what was done was to help players get out of their comfort zone. Raise yourself to the next level even if the overall picture isn’t perfect.

Colville is a left-footed centre-back who has built up a good game from the back. But he stood out with Brighton during his loan spell last season. Because of his left stopper, 3-man central defender system. Not the left back that ‘Poch’ uses.  ทางเข้า UFABET

Leading to receiving 5 out of 10 points from ‘Sport Mail’ and describing it as not a good night for Colville. Because they lost their position from Hayden Hackney’s 0-1 goal in the Carabao Cup round. The first match against Middlesbrough. Or going back to the first 60 seconds was a missed header that almost created a job. 


Pochettino still insists Colville will play at left-back. While he waits for owner Ben Chilwell to be 100% fit. 

“I don’t want to compare Levi with other players. But if you can see players like him being signed by various clubs to reinforce their squad. Take one that can play both center back and left back – who’s better than our kid?” Opening his mouth on the official website 

“Look, for me, Levi has had an incredible season.” 

“He can play as centre-back or full-back. He is a player of the future for Chelsea.”

“At this moment when you don’t win games. When results are mired. And you use young power players. Trust young players.”

“They need to learn a lesson. You need to develop yourself from real competition experiences.” 

The mature star has played at left-back in 15 matches in all competitions this season. Winning some and losing some, scoring one goal and one assist.
