Football News Roundup: Euro 2024, Champions League, FIFA World Cup, and More

In the world of football, Chelsea’s recent performances have been a topic of discussion. After losing against Liverpool on 31 January and Wolves four days later, some Chelsea supporters were calling for manager Mauricio Pochettino’s dismissal. However, those within the club stated that the manager was never in danger and pointed to the month of progress before the poor run of results, which had seen them secure their place in Sunday’s final.

Chelsea’s Resurgence

Since the loss at home to Wolves, Chelsea have remained unbeaten in three away games. They have beaten Aston Villa 3-1 in an FA Cup fourth-round replay, defeated Crystal Palace by the same score in the Premier League, and then drawn 1-1 with champions Manchester City. Former Chelsea midfielder Pat Nevin commented, “Chelsea have suddenly begun to resemble a grown-up football team. The maturing process was always going to take a while, but the performances against Aston Villa, Crystal Palace and now Man City have underlined that Mauricio Pochettino should lead them to much more than mid-table mediocrity next season.”

“The job is done but now it is about winning the final. From another side it is like it is not important as Chelsea is about winning the Champions League and Premier League. We need to start to realise and give credit to the team – as this is a team where a massive percentage didn’t maybe play at Wembley [before]. It’s important for the club, important for us and in this process to build a new team.” – Mauricio Pochettino
