I said before the match that we would be ready to fight, we would be ready to fight. I told the players before the penalties, I don’t care about the penalties, I care what they did. They were the best team. it was amazing. The second half, like a super team Chelsea It seemed like a very normal team, and they aren’t. We played very well. The team managed to wait for the right moment. I told the players, they should only think about this match, but I have to think about three games at the same time. And just think about this game. It was a phenomenon. All the credit to the boys. I can’t believe we’re playing a European game in 48 hours. The boys were adorable, and so adorable. I don’t care about penalties.
What happened to Eric Dyer is not normal, and I have to praise it in a special way, but the football authorities, with many rules in place, should have prevented a player from playing in 48 hours in two games, with such intensity. Because Newcastle was a Premier League match, and that was the level of the Premier League match. What Eric Dyer did is not human work. They have a lot of rules about everything, but Eric Dyer did what he did. [He confirms that Dier will not play on Thursday, as a result of tonight’s efforts]
All the other boys, they were adorable. We used boys, the first minute of the season. Tanganga, not even friendly. I decided Hugo ain’t Joe, just to signal to my team that we’re here to win. I wanted a captain on the field, the first goalkeeper on the field, but everything was up to them. I have an amazing negative record in penalties, but today I felt everything was going well, because we were by far the better team and the boys deserved to win this match.
