Mauricio Pochettino, manager of Chelsea, has said that Enzo Fernandez should rest.

During the winter transfer window, Fernandez moved to Chelsea from Benfica for a British transfer record sum of £106.8 million.

One of the bright spots for Chelsea’s struggling team that finished 12th in the Premier League was the Argentine.

Pochettino, who took over at Stamford Bridge on July 1, discussed the Argentine midfielder in an interview with The Guardian.

While recognizing the 2022 World Cup champ’s capacities, the supervisor additionally demanded the requirement for rest and more correspondence.

“It was important now to rest a little bit because he was one year and a half playing, playing, playing. It was arriving from Argentina to Portugal, from Portugal to the World Cup and from World Cup to England and never stopped for one year and a half,” he said of his compatriot.

“He’s young and energetic but young players also need to rest and clean their minds and he arrived in Chelsea, not in the best circumstances.

“He is still young and needs to learn about the Premier League. Now he knows what it is to be a Chelsea player and knows London, and is communicating better and we are going to help in all these aspects,” he added.
