‘That is the truth’… Mauricio Pochettino makes claim about Gary Neville and Liverpool after last night’s games



Mauricio Pochettino believes that Gary Neville’s comments about Chelsea came out of frustration with Liverpool’s victory.

The FA Cup took centre stage on Wednesday night and both Chelsea and Liverpool picked up wins over Championship competition.

Chelsea battled to a 3-2 win over Leeds United whereas Liverpool beat Southampton 3-0 by again showcasing academy talents.

The fallout from Sunday’s Carabao Cup final continues though and Mauricio Pochettino has again commented on the game – or, rather, Gary Neville’s comments…

Mauricio Pochettino on Gary Neville

Neville caused a stir with a brutal verdict on Chelsea.

‘Blue billion-pound bottle jobs’.

Those are the words Neville used to describe a Chelsea side who came up short against a host of Liverpool kids.

Some believe that Neville was too harsh, suggesting that this tag will now stick with Chelsea for the foreseeable future.

Pochettino was asked about the situation again and has told ITV (28/02, 9:50pm) that he has a theory about Neville’s comments.

Pochettino believes that Neville’s comments were actually because he was ‘frustrated’ at seeing Liverpool winning another trophy.

Neville has watched Liverpool win plenty of silverware under Jurgen Klopp whilst his beloved Manchester United have struggled.

Pochettino now thinks that his idea is ‘the truth’, believing that Neville let emotions get the better of him and he lashed out unfairly at his Chelsea side.

“If you are speaking about my friend Gary, I think he was frustrated because Liverpool won another title. That is the truth. I already talk about that, I think it’s not fair to accuse someone in this way that is very young, where the expectations are massive,” said Pochettino.

We aren’t quite so sure about this one.

Neville may bleed United but he has often been complimentary about Liverpool, especially under Jurgen Klopp.

We can’t imagine that Neville was all that angry or upset at Liverpool winning another trophy; he’s surely used to it at this point!

Neville was probably just genuinely stunned that Chelsea faded when the game was there to be won, especially against Liverpool’s youngsters.

People inside Anfield won’t care one bit; it’s another trophy in the cabinet and hopefully part one of a memorable end to Klopp’s time in the Liverpool dugout.
