Graham Potter has a doubleheader against Dortmund after successfully getting out of the group.
Chelsea boss Graham Potter is optimistic about Chelsea’s chances in the Champions League. The round of 16 clashes are starting from tomorrow and Chelsea will face Bundesliga club Dortmund in the first-leg game.
Graham Potter has been speaking about his first taste of Champions League action with Chelsea. The coach has a doubleheader against Dortmund after successfully getting out of the group.
He said his side “have the capability” to beat Dortmund – but “they are a strong side the with the capability to get a result as well.”
“There’s keeping your team humble and then there’s never making them feel like need or should win.”
“We’ve got a budget that dwarfs Dortmund’s. We’ve won the Champions League within the last two years. Dortmund will be a tough team, but we should be beating them. We want to hear our manager say that, and sound like he actually believes that.”
Chelsea’s campaign this season has been so poor and it become worse since the appointment of Graham Potter. They recently played a draw against West Ham in Premier League that means Blues will not take part in the Champions League next season.
