Football fans think that Mauricio Pochettino took the chance to take a dig at Mason Mount as he leaves the club for Manchester United.
Even before Pochettino had been named as the latest man to take on the role as Chelsea manager it was evident that Mount wanted to leave the club.
He appeared to wave goodbye to Stamford Bridge as the Blues ended a miserable season with a draw against Newcastle United back in May.
His departure has come at the same time as Pochettino's arrival, with the former PSG boss taking in his first day at the Cobham training ground on Monday.
Now supporters are noticing something else Poch said in his debut interview with the club and a potential dig aimed at the departing Mount.
The Argentine said he wants to breed a 'winning culture' and then added: "but also we want people that want to be with us," which people think was aimed at the midfielder.
"I’m very sure Poch was referring to Mount here," said one fan
"I’m glad I’m not the only one that heard the Mount sub in Poch’s interview," added a second.
Loving the new manager's work, a third commented: "Best part of the interview that's for sure."
Another commented: "Very strong words from Poch. That's why we don't need players like Havertz, Mount or even Kovacic. We need to stick with the players that enjoy and see there future at the club."
And fifth simply stated: "Poch fired shots at Mason Mount!"
It's no surprise that the new manager isn't too happy that Mount didn't want to stay with Fabrizio Romano reporting that Pochettino did want him in the team.
