Chelsea: Nicolas Jackson knocks out his detractors!


By: Manu Tournoux

At 22 years old, everything is going very quickly for Nicolas Jackson. Unknown to the general public two years ago, the Senegalese revealed himself in the second half of last season, at Villarreal. Today at Chelsea, he is having a mixed start, like his club, even if his statistics are honorable (7 goals in 16 Premier League days). With the Blues, the pressure is enormous, even more so when you are an attacker. So, the criticisms are numerous and do not seem to escape the native of Djibonker, who did not hesitate to quote Mohamed Salah and Kevin De Bruyne to calm Chelsea supporters, during an interview for The Standard.

“De Bruyne and Salah were there. They struggled here and are now great players. They didn’t listen to people who don’t know football.”says Jackson. “It’s correct (as to his start to the season, editor’s note), it’s not what I wanted, but it’s my first season, so I’m happy, even if everyone is talking bullshit, I am. I don’t care what people say. They’re just people who don’t know football. I will just continue to play more matches and score more goals for the team.”. The Senegalese has the support of Mauricio Pochettino: “He played with a lot of young players, so he motivates me every day and tells me to go for it. He has seen people worse than me and they are now great players. He knows football.”
