Chelsea responds in the FA Cup and agrees with Didier Drogba

Chelsea are far from achieving their football ceiling under Mauricio Pochettino, a situation which has put some pressure on the London side’s young squad, but they seem to have found their place in the domestic cup.

An example of this is the result against Aston Villa in the FA Cup fourth round replay, as they convincingly defeated the Unai Emery-led side to reach the round of 16 of the tournament.

With this result, the team from Cobham in London ensures its stability in the FA Cup and still aspires to the double of the cup in England in a season in which the European situation once again looks complicated.

Following defeats against Liverpool and Wolverhampton, criticism intensified of a Chelsea team which had ups and downs throughout the campaign and which was strongly isolated due to its youth.

Amidst all this criticism, peace came when London team legend Didier Drogba came out in defense of the team, maintaining that they still have a lot to improve and that he considers them one of the strongest teams . Their footballers become stronger once in the Premier League.

“I think it is not an easy time for the club, but they have my support and my trust because Chelsea is still Chelsea. Those kids, those players came to Chelsea because they want to be part of the legacy that previous generations have created. Unfortunately there is no time in football, but he will need time to adapt. When I joined Chelsea, that group of players were between 24 and 27 years old and we were ready to play, still learning. You have to give them time and when they reach their peak people will say wow, this is the new generation, one of the best Chelsea ever! It’s just a matter of time,” Didier Drogba told Sky Sports in an interview.
