Chelsea manager Pochettino blasts back at 'one billion' critics

Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino has come to the defense of his club's transfer policy.

The Argentine has felt the heat this week after losing in the Carabao Cup final to Liverpool.

After the extra-time 1-0 defeat, Pochettino blasted Chelsea's critics for obsessing over their lavish spending.

"When Chelsea lose, it is always because of, because of, because of," Pochettino said of pundits and fans who reference the more than a billion they have spent on players recently.

“No, the circumstances of Chelsea are the circumstances of Chelsea. They (the owners) wanted to build something different.

“It is only at the beginning. That's why we cannot compare it with the past.

“Always it is Chelsea and it always appears 'one billion' and you cannot fight against that idea."
