Breaking: Enzo Fernandez reveals new role after Pochettino meeting yesterday and here is what he said

Chelsea midfielder Enzo Fernandez admits he’s set for a new role this season.

The World Cup winner says he’s settled on a new position after talks with manager Mauricio Pochettino.

Fernandez said: “We talked a little bit about everything, where I felt most comfortable, everything.

“The truth is that yes, I like to play loose, and the function that I am going to fulfill this year is going to be that, playing double five but a little looser, trying not to have the responsibility I had last season, playing five alone.

“Now, with a five more next to me, obviously I will have much more freedom, but without detracting from the position, in the sense that I also have to defend, we have to help the team in that way.”

Fernandez will wear the No8 shirt this term.

He also said: “Before I had said that it was a number that identified me as a boy, I always used it playing baby. It’s a number that I like a lot, I have it tattooed, and that’s more why I asked for it, because I like it.

“I didn’t get a chance to talk to Frank that he was going to use the number, but I do know the history he demands and everything he’s achieved throughout his career here at Chelsea.

“To be able to get to that for me is also a very big challenge.”
