Chelsea are looking to revitalize their underperforming players to get out of their slump. Mikhail Mkhitaryan, the Ukrainian Son Heung-min, is one of them.

Transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano shared an interview with Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino on his Twitter account on Tuesday (July 2).

Pochettino said, “Believe me, Mudrikh is making a huge effort to get stronger and improve himself. He has a better understanding of what it means to play as a team. He’s young, he’ll definitely improve, and I’m happy with the way he is.”

Chelsea beat off competition from Arsenal to sign Mourinho in January. They paid a record transfer fee of £89 million, including options. 안전놀이터

Mourinho’s high price tag and expectations backfired on him at a young age. He finished with two assists in 15 league games. This season, he hasn’t registered a goal or an assist in six games.

Chelsea set out to save Mourinho. They’re trying to get him back in the goal with crossbar challenges. Even Pochettino is throwing his support behind him.

Pochettino was patient with Son Heung-min during his first season at Tottenham Hotspur and was instrumental in turning him into a Tottenham ace. It will be interesting to see if his experience can turn Mourinho into a Son Heung-min.
