Pochettino hails Chelsea star


Chelsea manager, Mauricio Pochettino has hailed Nicolas Jackson, saying the striker never gives up.

Pochettino spoke before Chelsea’s Premier League 2-2 draw with Brentford on Saturday.

“Nico’s 22 years old, he has arrived from a different country and a different league and everyone has put responsibility on him to score goals,” Pochettino said at his pre-match press conference.

“For me, he is doing fantastic. I really appreciate his effort.

“He is very tough and plays football with maturity in the way that he accepts and deals with the pressure.

“He never gives up. He is scoring goals.”

Jackson joined Chelsea from Villareal last summer for a reported fee of €35 million.
