Former Chelsea defender Graeme Le Saux has urged the club to take inspiration from London rivals Spurs and give more starts to young home-grown players.
The England international says that whoever takes over as Chelsea manager should take a leaf out of Mauricio Pochettino’s book to create a more successful long-term formula in the Premier league.
Speaking on the Carefree Chelsea Podcast, Le Saux said:
“I think it would create a fantastic culture at the club if the philosophy of Chelsea changed a little bit and started embracing those younger players and gave them a chance to establish themselves.”
“Tottenham have really given their young players the opportunity, and there’s a strength of character that home grown players have that filters to the other players.”
The Chelsea legend has also criticised the club’s decision to take the squad on a long pre-season tour and called for the Premier League to take a winter break.
