I feel the opposite. We controlled the game and created more chances. Maybe if we had 20 per cent more confidence we would have won today,” he said. Oil poured into the boiling of Chelsea fans.
“I don’t worry about what people outside the team think. They don’t know what’s going on inside,” he said, pointing out the fans’ ignorance. Finally, he said, “I understand the fans’ booing. The fans want us to win. They cheer when we win, and understand the disappointment when we lose. I took over the team knowing the risks, and I’m proud to be here.” He talked about the current situation, which is heading towards the future, as if it were someone else’s business. 스포츠토토
