Thomas Tuchel And Players Super Cup Reactions
The blues gaffer was quoted saying “What nicer way to start the season than with a European final? I have huge respect for Villarreal and Unai Emery.
I think they will approach this game feeling they have nothing to lose. We will do all we can to take the trophy, though.”
“We will take it very, very seriously and do as best we can to take the next trophy home.”
“Once you arrive, you want to win. This club is about winning titles and we have the first opportunity. We need the courage to face Villarreal without fear. Leave everything out on the pitch and give our best. We cannot predict the result.”
The german tactician was asked whether the returning playing will start:
“They could start but the question is can they finish? I think no. A European final after 8 days is pretty demanding. It’s too early for them. Clearly the guys who came in early and have more minutes deserve to start.”
Antonio Rudiger on the Super Cup
“We have to be ready in our minds to go to the limit. The good thing is we have a good squad. We are feeling good, feeling great. A lot of players had a good pre-season. We are ready to go.”
Thomas Tuchel on Tammy Abraham:
“He was clearly not happy with the last half a year and maybe he has a reason not to be happy. Maybe it was my fault for not trusting him on the same level that I trusted other players. This is the situation with him, and I can understand him.”
Mateo Kovacic on the Super Cup
“Chelsea is used to winning trophies. In this last year, we’ve shown we can achieve great things. I am sure we are not going to stop there. We are a team that is hungry to win more titles this season and we want to lift our first one today.”
