Nkunku, the new concern


By: Manu Tournoux

As he prepares to return to the field this Tuesday after his serious knee injury this summer, Christopher Nkunku is the subject of great attention from Mauricio Pochettino.

Christopher Nkunku finally sees the end of the tunnel. More than four months after his knee injury during the preparation match against Borussia Dortmund, the French international should make his comeback this Tuesday evening during the League Cup match against Newcastle.

But Mauricio Pochettino is extremely cautious, believing that his player only had around twenty minutes in his hands and will not be able to be the savior expected by the supporters. “What worries me is that we put too much pressure on him by saying: ‘that’s it, he’s here, he’s the one who will allow us to win all the matches and change everything.’ I don’t think that will happen, confided the Blues coach. He needs time to regain his feelings. I would be happy if he started, maybe tomorrow (Tuesday), if he scored three goals and if he remained consistent.

“But the most important thing is not to put too much pressure on him, because he has to find himself, find competition and then adapt to a team that has been playing without him for four-five months , he continued. We have to be careful, he still hasn’t made his Premier League debut. We know how difficult the Premier League is for every player who arrives from abroad. »
