Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino says he will have a say on whether defender Trevoh Chalobah, linked with an exit from the club, will leave in the January transfer window.

There had been reports that he was told he would never play for the club after refusing to leave for Nottingham Forest on transfer deadline day.

Chalobah is currently injured and hasn’t played for the club this season but the Argentine manager says he will be given an opportunity to relaunch his career when he’s given the all-clear to return to training.

Pochettino told reporters ahead of the game against Bournemouth on Sunday: “Of course, he’s part of my plans, yes. I am Chelsea, I am the coach and his future is going to be involved in my plan no one is going to decide for me.”

The Chelsea manager also provided further injury update to captain Reece James who he says is back in training even though the game against Bournemouth will come too soon for him.

Chelsea manager Pochettino added on his captain: “He’s recovering well and we assess him every single day. I hope he will be available before the next international break.”

Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino has not won an away game since February 2019 and has four points from four games in the league. He however suggested he was calm about not winning an away game in a while and said that at Chelsea you must win every game.

The Chelsea boss added: “Why? Four or five years ago, the circumstances were different. Every game is a must-win. If you do not win in football, there are problems. Why would it concern me.”
