Chelsea defender, Reece James has come out to say that the club’s run in the UCL has been surprising. He, however, revealed that it is a welcome performance during a very strange season for Chelsea.
According to him, the current campaign started off strange with the horrible results here and there, and he wouldn’t have believed that the same team would be doing so well in Europe right now.
He added that it just shows that with hard work and dedication, anything is possible in football.
His words, “The season started off a bit strange.”
“If you’d said we would have been here at the start of the season then we probably wouldn’t have believed you, but it just shows what’s possible with hard work, everyone getting their heads down and working as a team.”
“When you come to the later stages of competitions, you know you’re going to come up against top-class teams. We need to be ready and at our best right from the start.”
On the UCL, “You can’t go into games with any fear. You can acknowledge a good team but you can’t go in worrying.”
“We’re a very good team as well. We have many strengths, we play to our strengths and I think that’s shown over recent weeks. I just hope we can continue our good form and keep improving as a team.”
“As we’ve progressed in the tournament, obviously the games have got harder and it’s higher stakes.”
“I’ve never been in this position before, like a lot of the other young lads, and we’re learning a lot on the way. It’s part of playing in Europe and in the Champions League. When you play against foreign teams, they know what to do to get through games so you sometimes have to give some back to them as well.”
