Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel senses a ‘strong bond’ within his players ahead of Real Madrid clash.
The London club are into the Champions League semi-final and FA Cup final and have also pushed themselves towards finishing in the top-four on the Premier League.
Speaking ahead of Tuesday’s first leg against Real Madrid, Tuchel was speaking about the camaraderie amongst his players.
“Every match I feel we are able to play on a very high level and if it is not possible to play our nicest match,” Tuchel told a pre-match press conference. “We are always able to not let our opponents play their best match, which is also the definition of performance, to not let the others perform.
“I feel a strong bond within the squad and I feel us very involved physically in the games, ready work together and suffer together. If it is necessary to fight, we fight, if it is necessary to run, we run, if it is the moment to show your skills or to escape pressure with passing, or be dominant, we have in every match moments when we can do this.
“The level is so high when you arrive in the semi-final of the Champions League. We should not expect crazy things from us but the same again on the highest level and we have the experience together, we have tough matches, tight and very important matches recently in Premier League and FA Cup.
“It is a good moment to play this match and we want to play hungry and adventurous. We maybe lack a bit of experience in a semi-final but we can compensate with hunger and enthusiasm.”
