Pochettino coaching key to new Chelsea contract – Colwill



Levi Colwill says Mauricio Pochettino’s coaching is a “guarantee” of improvement in his game as the Chelsea manager is willing to “give me that kick up” he needs.

The 20-year-old has resisted interest from Brighton — where he spent last season on loan — to sign a new long-term deal to stay at Stamford Bridge, where he has made a fine start to the campaign.

After forming a key part of England’s successful European Under-21 Championship side this summer, Colwill started all five games under Pochettino and earned his first senior call-up to Gareth Southgate’s squad for this month’s games against Ukraine and Scotland.

Colwill said of Pochettino: “Just working with him in general, I know I’m going to improve. I can guarantee that. He’s a good manager and he’ll push me, he’ll never let me off, that’s what I need.

“Someone like me, my day can go good or bad if someone lets me sleep. I need someone there to give me that kick up bum and say ‘keep going’. That’s what he does.

“[Before signing a new contract]I just spoke to him and he gave me confidence that if I practice well, you will get a chance to play.

“I’m not a player that’s going to demand that I play, that’s not who I am. I wasn’t raised that way. I just wanted to know if I could earn and hold my place. That’s it.”
