'Facing Chelsea FC with confidence'
KRC Genk take on Chelsea FC in the Champions League on Wednesday. 'It's a gama we are all looking forward to,' Mario Been says.
Sarr and Peeters are in the selection.
Anele, Masuero, Sarr, Tözser, Pudil, Durwael, Camus, Hyland, Vanden Borre, De Bruyne, Limbombe, Vossen, Barda, Kennedy, Ogunjimi, Buffel, Dugary, Peeters, Köteles, Sandomierski and Lenz. Those are the 21 players (3 goalkeepers included) that travel to London from Liège Airport on Tuesday. Because of the great number of injuries Sarr and Peeters (youth team) have been added to the selection out of precaution. Sarr is still not 100% fit to play but will make the journey.
"I have been watching Chelsea on several occasions" Mario Been said at the pre-match chat with the press. "Saying that it will be an extremely difficult game is kicking in an open door. But football will always be football. Whatever the circumstances may be, we will tackle them with confidence. It's these kind of games a player likes to play. So we will try to enjoy the moment and do what has to be done."
Avoid unnecessary red cards.
Been also looked back on the red cards Barda and Benteke took against OH Leuven and Lokeren respectively. "They were totally unnecessary and they cost us dearly. Benteke was very upset about his sending off but I have made it clear to him and to the group that it was unexceptable. The players totally agreed with me, this kind of red cards must be avoided in the future."
