Mauricio Pochettino expressed disappointment as Chelsea fell short of their club’s esteemed history, apologizing to fans after a 4-2 home defeat to Wolves.

I bear the initial responsibility for our current situation,” he admitted.

Reflecting on the team’s performance, Pochettino acknowledged shortcomings in managing critical situations and called for accountability from both himself and the players. He stressed the importance of accepting the current reality while maintaining determination to meet the standards set by the club’s illustrious history.

Pochettino’s remarks underscored the urgency for Chelsea to regain their footing and live up to the storied legacy of the club.
