Pochettino’s assistant aims sly dig at Tottenham with four-word Chelsea message

When Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea visit north London on Monday night, there will be a lot of tension.

Prior to the Blues’ matchup with Spurs, Jesus Perez, Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino’s assistant, has taken a playful jab at Tottenham. The Spaniard, who acknowledged to an FA misconduct allegation earlier this week, will be in the dugout with his Argentine counterpart on Monday night.

When Perez entered the opposing team’s technical area during Chelsea’s game against Brentford at Stamford Bridge last weekend, it was determined that he had behaved improperly. He acknowledged his charge and received a £4,000 fine for his actions.

Following the Blues’ defeat to Thomas Frank’s side, Pochettino apologised on Perez’s behalf. He said: “I think he deserves to be fined, to be punished because you cannot travel. We are unable to enter the Brentford region, so I must apologize to the Brentford coaching staff.

“He is aware that he erred. To be fair, he wanted to succeed and assist the team in gaining possession of the ball and initiating the action. The attitude of Jesus, in my opinion, is that we desire this kind of behavior, but he overlooked the fact that there is a new rule in this season; if you go to another technical area, it suffices.”

A touchline ban does not always follow a red card, even though the player has been given his marching orders. Rather, in the event that a coach is sent off, they are not allowed to witness the rest of the game. This information is then recorded so that charges can be decided upon.

This time, Perez was charged normally, acknowledged his punishment, and the amount of his fine was made public. It would take an accumulation of cautions for a player to receive an automatic touchline ban as punishment.

A one-match suspension follows three cautions, two after two, and nine after three. A misbehavior complaint would be filed with the Regulatory Commission after 12 warnings.

Nevertheless, when they return to their former stomping ground on Monday night, Pochettino will still have his right-hand man at his side. The Chelsea manager made an effort to win over Blues and Spurs supporters, but his assistant has revealed his real colors on social media.

Perez shared two pictures of his daughters adopting the identical posture on X, the original name of Twitter, and Instagram, taken years apart. One from his north London days, wearing Tottenham shirts, and the other presently wearing Chelsea uniforms. The post’s caption, written in Spanish, read, “#love is colour blind.”

Ahead of the London derby, Perez’s message, which features his family shunning Spurs, has undoubtedly been well received by Blues fans. In an interview with the media prior to the highly anticipated fight, Pochettino was questioned about his expectations for the reception he and his partner would receive.

“I’m not going to say anything at the moment because until Monday we cannot guess,” stated the manager of the Blues. “People must understand that we will never forget the life we have lived.”

“Wonderful memories, and after that, I’m going to respect people’s expressions,” It won’t alter my feelings, opinions, or sentiments for a club where we had an amazing experience.”
