Mauricio Pochettino praises Enzo Fernández goal: “He is a world champion”


Mauricio Pochettino praised Enzo Fernández’s free-kick goal and performance in Chelsea’s 3-1 win vs. Aston Villa.

Here is what the Blues’ coach had to say about Enzo:

“It does not surprise me. Enzo has the ability to perform like that. He’s a world champion player.

“Look, when he signed one year ago, he arrived with no holidays, no rest, with the pressure, still young, different language, different culture. All these types of circumstances need time. Today, Enzo showed why he is here and his quality.”

On the win, Pochettino said the following:

“I am very pleased. First of all, because the players were fantastic. They enjoyed the game against a team that is doing fantastic, that is so difficult to beat here, full of confidence. That is why I am really, really pleased with the performance. It gives us the capacity to really believe.”


  1. Enzo was phenomenal ! His progressive passes would rival Messi today. His long ball pass from left flank to right flank in the first half was so good but Chelsea just wasted it! He as usual due to his sublime positioning and supreme fuballing IQ was in goal scoring positions multiple times. He was controlling whole flow of the match. And the goal was top notch. It was so perfectly placed that flying Emi who covered almost the whole post couldn’t save it even though his fingers came in contact with the ball.

    “Kobbie Mainoo is what Chelsea thought Enzo was”. It seemed like he took this comment from United fans Personally! 🙄

  2. Enzo had a great game what a free-kicks to score argubly against best golie in the world emi martinez
