The head coach of London “Chelsea” Thomas Tuchel spoke about the last match with Madrid “Atletico”. Chelsea beat Atlético 1-0.
We wanted to dominate the opponent’s half of the field, never lose concentration, avoid easy mistakes and always remember about quick counterattacks, for all their quality.
It was a very disciplined performance. It is hard work, team effort is the basis for a great victory.
We knew what was going to happen. We wanted to be brave and play compactly on our side.
The intention was to keep the intensity high. This is what we have done at a very high level. We did not allow them to act freely and run out in devastating counterattacks.
Opening Atlético’s defenses is one of the toughest challenges in football. But we were able to ”, – said Tuchel for BT Sport.
