Pressconference and training Chelsea CF
A lot of media interest coming from the other side of the Channel for Andre Villas-Boas’ and player Branislav Ivanovic’s press conference.
But not a single question about tomorrow’s Champions League game against KRC Genk came from the British press. All the more about the two back to back defeats for Chelsea in the Premier League, the last one in the London derby against Arsenal.
“Nevertheless it’s a difficult task we are up against. After their victory over Bruges, Genk have proved to be back on the right track. They may loose Pudil through suspension but they recover Nadson in central defense. The atmosphere in this stadium can be quite impressive. I’ve played here last year with Porto, and the first half hour was all but easy. I will pass this on to my players, “ thus Villas-Boas.
Branislav Ivanovic backed his coach. “We traveled to Genk as strong favourites, especially after the away game. But the defeat against Arsenal was mostly due to unconcentrated defending. We will have to bear that in mind tomorrow.”
