Chelsea head coach Mauricio Pochettino has insisted he enjoys seeing the club's owners enter the dressing room after games.
Blues co-owner Behdad Eghbali is understood to have spoken to the squad after the recent 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa, with fellow co-owner Todd Boehly known to have done similar in the past as well.
While Eghbali's surprise visit has divided fans, Pochettino assured supporters he has no problem with the idea of owners in the dressing room.
«I like when the owners come,» he told Tuesday's press conference. «In all my career at Espanyol, Southampton, with Tottenham, Paris Saint-Germain.
»I think it's good that the owner came to the dressing room, it's the way in which they approach the players is most important. If they are in a good way and the correct way, they are very welcome. After my press conference, after all of the media, the game against Aston Villa, they came and shared with us.
«They also did it with Liverpool and Luton and Nottingham Forest. They came with Paul [Winstanley] and Laurence [Stewart, co-sporting directors], Behdad and sometimes Todd also and we talk about the game. I don't see in a bad way. For me it's good always if they share with us and then can say hello to the players. If they came for a speech, that is different. In the way they came, they are very welcome. They own the club, I think they can do what they want.
»They are in a very good way, we are glad they shared time with us. When we win and it's good things, and to share when we are suffering like on Sunday."
With Chelsea back in action on Wednesday against Brighton & Hove Albion in the Carabao Cup, Pochettino's focus is now on restoring confidence to a Blues side who have fallen down to 14th in the Premier League.
