EPL: He’s nervous – Ian Wright feels sorry for Chelsea star

Published

on

 

Arsenal legend, Ian Wright has pitied Chelsea star Nicolas Jackson, saying the Senegal international is nervous.

According to Neville, Jackson is scared and nowhere near the level to the point where he can lead Chelsea.

He also hit out at Mykhailo Mudryk for his sub-par start to life at the Blues.

Recall that Jackson joined the Premier League west London club from Spanish La Liga club Villarreal ahead of the 2023-24 season.

The 22-year-old has often shown signs of a lack of composure and consistency despite scoring seven goals in 18 appearances across all competitions for Mauricio Pochettino’s side so far this term.

Speaking on the Wrighty’s House podcast, Wright, “I feel sorry for Jackson. He is nowhere near the level to the point where you can see it, you can see it. He is nervous, he’s scared, he’s worried because he’s not near it.

“Mudryk, he’s still playing exactly how I saw a couple of videos of him when he’s doing his stuff, running 100 miles an hour, not slowing down.”

Ancelotti skeptical on Madrid star winning the Ballon d’or

Published

on

Real Madrid coach, Carlo Ancelotti has seen his side perform admirably domestically and in the Champions League. He led them to their 36th La Liga trophy while also preparing for a Champions League showdown with Borussia Dortmund after defying the odds and eliminating Pep Guardiola’s Man City.

Many players have been a revelation as they have been phenomenal. The blend of old and experienced players with young and agile players has been a perfect sync so far.

Amongst the players heralded for personal honours and with the Ballon d’or in view, fans and pundits have tipped Toni Kroos who is now 34 years for the Ballon d’or.

Ancelotti in a statement revealed that he will fancy the Germany international  winning the coveted award, but  it may not be possible. He said that if Kroos wins the Champions League and Euros 2024, he may have an opportunity to fight and win it.

In his statement (via @MadridXtra), Ancelotti said “Ballon d’Or for Kroos? Yes I would like it but he won’t win it. Or maybe…anything can happen.

“There is the Euro this summer, if he wins the Champions League and the Euro with Germany… he could fight for the Ballon d’Or.”

Kroos who bagged an assist in his side’s demolition of Alaves is hoping to win the champions league for the 6th time and came out of international retirement to lead his side to glory in the Euros 2024 on home soil.
