Today, in Nyon, Switzerland, the draw was made for the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League, where, just like last season, the “blues” of Chelsea “fished”, the Spaniards of Real Madrid, in a match that is expected to give nothing less than the spectacle.
For the technical media of the “blues”, Graham Potter said that the confrontation with Real Madrid is very exciting, but it makes no sense to focus on the Champions League match with the Madrid players now, because it is still “too far away”.
“The feeling is exciting, but I’d rather talk about Everton because that’s our game tomorrow. The rest is a long way off,” said Potter, who also praised the figure of Carlo Ancelotti.
“I faced him when he was at Everton. He is a gentleman and may I add some respect for all that he has accomplished in his career. I think the time that has passed between his first and last ‘champions’ (20 years) is incredible,” added Potter in his speech.
On the form of the team, which is 11 points behind fourth place in the Premier League, Potter said it is a difficult time for everyone because the results “have not been good”.
I agree, but now we have to get out of there. You also need luck. You can be very good, but it is important to be lucky. Of course, you can’t expect it to magically appear. You have to fight it. We have won three games in a row, but we need more”, said Potter during the press conference.
