Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino has revealed the reason behind his captaincy decision.
One fan said, "Yeah Jackson showing his age here, misses the next game already all for dissent."
Another added, "Jackson’s customary dissent yellow card. Misses next game.."
One fumed, "Nicolas Jackson again with a disciplinary issue. All yellow cards this season are all due to dissent.."
Meanwhile, Mauricio Pochettino, the manager of Chelsea, claimed he had spoken to Jackson and Enzo Fernandez about Jackson's disciple.
Pochettino said, “I talked to him today. We were talking about that. We had a meeting with him and Enzo.
“I said ‘Come on, for a striker to have four yellow cards, to protest…to talk with the referee.'
“You need to get some yellow cards for different actions not because of that. It’s so easy, so cheap.
“I think he could put the team in a really difficult situation (if it continues). He understood.
“But Jackson is 22, he is young, he needs to learn, to improve. He is going to be a fantastic player, but he needs time.”
Teammate Malo Gusto, who was dismissed after a VAR review for his studs-up tackle, will be sitting with Jackson on the sidelines.
