Mauricio Pochettino punished suspended striker Nicolas Jackson by making him do extra running for his match suspension, setting a different standard for himself as the Chelsea boss is himself facing a ban this weekend for the match against Newcastle. It seems Pochettino has a unique approach for handling player violations, as Jackson was pushed to do grueling laps of the training ground when he received a one-match suspension for accumulating five yellow cards in his first six Premier League games. Pochettino joked about his own punishment, revealing that instead of running, he will be paying for a dinner and treating the players and staff to a barbecue. Additionally, Pochettino emphasized the importance of tough love and pushing players like Cole Palmer out of their comfort zones to continue improving and performing at their best. This story of Pochettino’s unorthodox disciplinary measures and coaching methods is highlighted in the latest episode of “It’s All Kicking Off” podcast by Mail Sport.
