EPL: Rules have changed, you need to learn quickly – Pochettino warns Chelsea star

Chelsea boss, Mauricio Pochettino has warned his player Nickolas Jackson to ‘understand rules have changed’ in regards to talking to referees in the Premier League.

Jackson, who moved to Chelsea in the summer, has picked up a whopping seven yellow cards in just twelve Premier League appearances this season.

The Senegal international was forced to miss Chelsea’s win against Fulham in October after picking up a suspension.

However, Pochettino wants Jackson to wise up on the current rules, adding that he needs to learn quickly or pay for it.

“When you analyse the team, starting XI or players who come from the bench, there is not too much experience of the Premier League,” Pochettino said at his pre-match press conference ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League tie with Brighton on Sunday.

“We are talking about Jackson, he came from a different league. He needs to understand the rules have changed and where the limit is to talk with the referee.

“Like this, many other players, or players who play less than one year. We cannot underestimate the Premier League.

“The Premier League, you can arrive here, but it is the toughest league. Sometimes, as a team, we need to be more mature to manage situations, and then sometimes, we make a mistake.

“There are many factors, but these two are principal. You need to learn quickly; if not, you pay for it.”
