Chelsea icon rips into squad as Pochettino only has ‘one international star’ | Football | Sport

“It’s hard to explain (Caicedo and Fernandez’s performances), for Caicedo it’s the first time he plays for a big, big club,” he added. “He is young and coming from Brighton you have more pressure and you have been sold for £100million-plus so you have a pressure over your shoulder and maybe he doesn’t handle that properly.

“On top of that he lives in a very strange atmosphere and you are thrown into that and you kind of drop into that, it’s very difficult to cope with the situation. It’s why I always talk about players with experience to sort all of the problems out.

“Thiago Silva can sort the problem because he’s very smart and knows how to handle that, we see (Benoit) Badiashile and (Axel) Disasi are not coping with that and it’s the same for Enzo and Caicedo. You need players with a certain experience who can help the other players to sort out all the problems and make life a bit lighter than it is right now in the dressing room.”
