Real Madrid-Chelsea, Lampard and the feat with Di Matteo: “You never know…”
London, UK) – Why don’t we repeat, as a coach, the football “miracle” that he already achieved in 2012as a soccer player? Eleven years later, Frankie Lampard wonders, having just taken the sacked Graham Potter’s place on the bench at Chelsea. A position that reminds him of when he played e Roberto Di Matto became the new manager of the Blues in March, replacing Portugal’s Andre Villas-Boas. And so came the comebacks against Napoli and Barcelona (in the semi-finals) in the Champions League and then the stunning penalty shootout victory in the final in Munich which Bayern were fortunate enough to play at home and instead lost. So why not hope that, starting with a double challenge in the quarter-finals against defending champions Real Madrid (even Barcelona, at the time, were the same), the miracle would repeat itself? “There is so much to do, but you never know Lampard’s words On the eve of the first leg against Carlo Ancelotti “Le Merengues” –. I remember we stopped the team bus at the Camp Nou and told each other we were going to fight for our lives. We persevered and the company succeeded“.
The secret of Lampard and Di Matteo at Chelsea in 2012
The secret was thatWe had great desire, great personality and a high level of talent In a group that fought for years to win the Champions League and finally succeeded. The concept is still valid today – Add –A team and a group that is always going through difficult moments in order to be greatTo try to get a result at the Bernabéu, Lampard is betting on the pound sterling, who has suffered since moving from Manchester City last year, and has scored only 7 goals with Chelsea so far. “He has been one of the best players in the world for a long time – He says –, sometimes, perhaps in some people’s opinion, is the best. I can’t remember how many times I told the young striker ‘Look at Raheem Sterling and find out why he’s scored 20 goals a season’. I think he’s a great player and I count on him“.
