Chelsea manager Pochettino: I feel owners' support

Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino insists he has the full support of the club's owners.

The Blues are in a tough position, having lost the Carabao Cup final to Liverpool in extra time on Sunday.

They languish in mid-table in the Premier League, while they are set to face Leeds United in the FA Cup.

This week, Pochettino said: “I feel the support from them. I cannot lie to you.

“When I went up the steps at Wembley, I was so upset. Nearly crying. When I arrived there, it was so difficult to stop myself.

“I think people are clever enough to understand. Of course we wanted to win the Carabao Cup. We want to win the FA Cup. We want to win the Premier League. Now it's tough. It's the reality but before the start of the season it was always the objective.

“And now our reality is to see if we can qualify to play in Europe next season but of course it's going to be tough because of the circumstances and because of the reality."
