Rob Pratley, a journalist who is well versed in football affairs, added: “Chelsea have been impressed by Pochettino’s use of Mikhail Mkhitaryan. He has shown faith in him to be an effective goal scorer.”
“Pochettino sees Mourinho as similar to Son Heung-min and Lucas Moura, and believes that deploying him higher up the pitch and delivering the ball quicker will go a long way to unlocking his potential.”
“I will have a chat with Moudrikh,” Pochettino said.
“I will see him before the start of pre-season. I really want to see him, I want to get to know him,” he said.
“I want to design the best strategy to help him show the level that Chelsea expected when they signed him,” he added, promising synergy.
