‘He’s not ready’: Alan Shearer says 22-year-old isn’t good enough to be starting regularly for Chelsea now.



Alan Shearer states, “He’s not ready.” The 22-year-old is not strong enough to start regularly for Chelsea at this time.During his rookie campaign with Chelsea, Nicolas Jackson has been confronted with a multitude of uncertainties surrounding his reputation.

The 22-year-old Nicolas Jackson has generated considerable discussion as he endeavors to fill the void in the attack.Although the youthful forward has scored eight goals in 23 appearances for the Blues across all competitions, that hardly begins to describe how raw he still appears.


Although the Senegalese international has managed to score a few goals, he is currently gaining a reputation for missing golden opportunities in front of the net.Alan Shearer has contributed to the Jackson discourse by stating that he is not yet competent enough to appear regularly for Chelsea.


Shearer stated on The Rest Is Football podcast: “He is not prepared to play regularly for a club that is striving for a spot in the Champions League and victory. Although he performs admirably, he is not yet prepared to become a regular.


Nicolas Jackson should not be beginning on a regular basis for Chelsea.

To be fair, we believe that Jackson’s start to his tenure at Stamford Bridge has been average.The striker’s execution must certainly improve. His overall play, however, appears to be in order, and he is exceedingly active on the field.


We anticipated him to be an almost certain starter for Mauricio Pochettino’s squad in the first half of the season, given the absence of Christopher Nkunku for the majority of the campaign.


Incorporating the fact that Cole Palmer is the only Chelsea player to have scored more goals than Jackson this season is significant.


Kalidou Koulibaly stated earlier this month via Sky Sports that he is certain Jackson will have a prosperous future at Chelsea.
