Pundit Gary Neville has claimed he can’t believe the rate Chelsea are still signing players at this stage of their project.

He told Sky Sports that they need to slow down the rate of players coming in to give the manager a hand in terms of picking his team every week.

Boehly has been keen to bring in plenty of players at both first team level and for the future.

This however has left whoever the manager is with a bloated squad to choose from when it comes to a matchday.

Yesterday’s game saw a first start of the season for Mykhailo Mudryk and Lesley Ugochukwu, who both joined for big money over the last 12 months.

However, they are two of many players who will have joined the club with the expectation of first team minutes pretty soon.

Now, Neville has claimed that they need to slow down in order to give Mauricio Pochettino a chance at the club.

He said: “It’s mad, it’s chaotic – the amount of players they bring in, we have been saying it for 15 months!

“They just need to stop. Sometimes I say this about my own life but when you feel like you are spinning on a roundabout too fast, you need to stop and allow things to slow down. It must be like that for Pochettino and the fans at the moment. They don’t know who will play from one game to the next.

“The project feels a bit mad with no coordination. I know they are signing young players on long contracts but it is something I am not sure about; Pochettino is a fantastic coach and the club will have to let their manager work it out over a period of time.”
