How are you How are you preparing? And how do you feel before Sunday’s race?
I feel great I’m really excited to be back in the Premier League, really busy because it’s a very busy period with pre-season and everything, but I’m really excited to be here on Sunday to start the game.
What was it about Reece that made you give him the captain’s armband?
He is not just a player who can lead, his character, his qualities. he is present And he will be the future too. He’s from the Academy. for me and the club He is the perfect player. be the captain of the team
with Liverpool both on and off the field Any updates on Moises Caicedo?
I think you know me well I never talk about players that are not ours. I think I’m very respectable. I can tell you that we are working hard to add players to the squad, increase the quality if we have an update for you. The club will operate
For now, I’m not going to talk about players that aren’t ours. I think that’s very important to respect the club and all the players. Like any other club, we are working hard to try to increase the quality. And, of course, to strengthen teams and teams. We are working hard I am very happy with the way we are working with Paul Lawrence and the owners, the relationship is really good and strong. so far so good We are very happy to work in this way.

Areas you want to improve?
Yes, but I think it’s clear, isn’t it? Obviously when you look at the team and compare it to last season. Too many midfielders left the team. And we have different options. We are working hard to give it a try. But always respect all names and the club. It’s very important for us to respect each other. That’s how I love working. and how we have to work in the club
Does Harry Kane know of the dramatic transfer market with the Saudi Pro League?
There is a new market like Saudi Arabia. Which is good for players and coaches as well. I think when this kind of situation appears in football. It is important to improve and develop. Even if it looks like a drama, it’s true. But this is football We have to enjoy football and emotions. We have to enjoy what we are doing. But of course when money is involved. Sometimes it looks like a play. You have to have a good balance and find a good balance.
Players need to play with their abilities. And we are responsible for protecting their abilities. Feel free, enjoy the game and give everything to create a positive phenomenon for the fans. and to win It will be dramatic if we don’t win.
will feel strange Was it at home at Stamford Bridge?
I will be in the dugout like I was at Southampton or Tottenham. Because we’re moving to the right.
not uncommon I will feel at home We are moving because we have better space. And it’s better to be on the right that was a decision The day we signed the contract here And the club agrees with me. Breaking news. We are moving to the right.
I don’t know if it’s lucky I think it’s the best because it’s bigger. because you are in the middle you are at home And you control everything. For me, that’s important. It’s strange that they gave me the best position when I was at Southampton and Tottenham. And that’s what I’ve always thought about. The mechanic showed me a picture of the Battle of the Bridge, and it was like we were at home. Little details make all the difference.
How highly would you rate Jurgen Klopp?
He is one of the best. We can’t say he’s the best. But he is one of the top five best managers in the world. I have a good relationship with him. He was very cute when I left Tottenham. One of the best messages I received. He has done a great job at Liverpool, very happy because he deserves the support of the club. Good times and bad times but they really believe in him and once again give him the best tools to build a good team ready to fight for every title.
What do you miss the most in the Premier League?
I miss you. All of you are not you. I’m sorry, because the media relations have always been good. sometimes you’re not cute But you respect our work very much. I miss the Premier League because of the organization. And it’s really a race. Every week there is a match, every game, even when you play cup games. It’s really a race. When you play for a League One, League Two or Championship team
Fans broadcast the game when you are away from this environment. You’ll feel a little lost. Because the football here is amazing and how the media speaks to the people and you. It’s the perfect combination for me. Which makes it the best league in the world.
The two big teams face off on Sunday. But are both teams in transition?
I think we are in more transition than Liverpool. I just arrived and how long has Klopp been in Liverpool? Seven years. You can predict change. You can see what is coming. You can precede the problem. When you receive support from the club I think it’s smart how you anticipate the situation.
Of course we are Chelsea, the history of the club is about winning trophies. Even though we are in transition But we can’t say we’re in a transition, we have to win, we have to be ready to win. And we are ready to beat Liverpool. Although they are a really good team. The idea for the players and the whole club is to compete at our best to be strong and really believe in us. I will not accept a different way of thinking.
No excuses for us Because we must be strong And of course we have very good players. and players who can compete and fight for great things. This process is about always improving. We started just a month ago. We have to set our principles. In time we will arrive in our best condition to go there with the big teams. And put the club in the right position.
Reaction to Christopher Nkunku’s injury? Will you come back to the market?
We feel very sorry for him. he is doing well He is a very important player for us. I think the quality is there. One of the best offensive players who can play in different positions, which is always a big problem for us. Now it’s about not having to think too much about the injury. And think positive that he will be with us again and recover as soon as possible in a good way.
We are working in the market as well. We will miss one such player. the club is working try to find a solution It can be short, medium and long term to add the right profile for the team to perform at this moment.
Will Robert Sanchez start on Sunday?
It will be a very good race. We need to sign again. The club has been following him for a long time and this is a great opportunity for the club to sign him. And it’s a good challenge for Kepa too. Kepa is three or four weeks old working with us. a little ahead of him
Like many other players, it will be a challenge for them to maintain their position if they play on Sunday. For players who do not play They had to fight to get their teammates to play instead. That’s competitive and it’s sure to get better. Both Chelsea have two very good goalkeepers and a great goalkeeper who will fight for the title.
Do you have to explain this to Kepa?
No, they’re smart enough if you’re not. Maybe we need to explain the situation. But I think in football he is an adult So is Robert. they are very mature They know they will fight to be number one now. Kepa is slightly ahead. but over time We’ll see if Robert is there. and able to challenge Kepa to increase the level of both
Have your expectations changed about what you can do?
No, it won’t change. We are working hard to try and make the team successful. We know the market doesn’t help all businesses get done before the start of the season. It’s like this in every club. I want to be positive because I’m positive and we have to win. We can’t start the season. We can’t start pre-season thinking, ‘Oh you’re going to win if you bring players in’ if we don’t bring players in or finish the team the way we want, ‘Oh we’re not going to win’. No, minds are different.
I’m very happy with the way the players work. We have the quality to win games and it’s where we want to be. It’s really about faith and hard work. I have no doubt that with the help of the fans. and the quality of our players We can win the game, no doubt.
