Chelsea midfielder Enzo Fernandez has disclosed what caretaker manager Frank Lampard told the team ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League quarterfinals tie against Real Madrid
The World Cup winner is excited about facing the La Liga giants.
Asked about facing Real Madrid, Fernandez replied: “It is a very big club with a lot of history, big players. We trust in what we are going to do. A good match.
“Modric and Kroos are two players who won everything in Madrid and they are an inspiration for everyone. Afraid, no. We are not afraid.
“Of course, there is respect because we know the quality they have and the forwards they have. But we will try to counteract them with our defenders and try to make a wonderful match.”
On his first week with caretaker manager Frank Lampard, he also said: “Frank talked with the group a bit and he told us to keep our heads straight.
“Chelsea is a club with a huge history. He told us he won the Champions League in 2012, and he mentioned it was in his worst moment at Chelsea. A great example for us.”
