Most of the Chelsea fans are ruing the fact that we have been largely inactive in this transfer window. Our rivals, including Manchester United and Manchester City have already made some marquee signing before the start of the new season. While, the Blues have been focussed on strengthening their depth.
However, Matic doesn’t think the same way. In an interview with Chelsea’s official website Matic had slightly different views:
“Chelsea is strong. Of course when you lose some players it is not easy but this is the football life, and that is why we have signed some new players and I am sure they will be very important for us. I am sure that after this pre-season we will be ready to compete with every team.”
The big Serbian also had kind words of welcome for the new signing Asmir Begovic whom he considers to be a top GoalKeeper and professional.
“I want to say welcome to every player who came and to say to them that they are now part of the team. Asmir is a great goalkeeper and great person. He has just trained with us two days and we will see what is going to happen but I think he is very happy and he works very hard. Of course everyone is important for us and Asmir is going to be important.”
Talking about the new season, Matic thinks it’s going to be difficult to defend the title because we are the team to defeat this season. Although, having Jose Mourinho at your helm certainly helps!
“Last season was good for us – we won the league and a cup so it is going to be very hard because every team wants to win against the champions. But we know that and that is why we work very hard now and we are ready for that.
“It is going to be more difficult, but we are guilty [for that] because we were champions last year. We know what we can expect and we will be ready for everything.
“Jose gives us very hard training now and it is difficult from the beginning, but for me it is not very difficult because football is my life and my job and I like my job. That is why pre-season is more easy for me.”
Well, it’s certainly going to be difficult to defend the title considering our rivals are stronger than last season. Although, if we play to our strength we are more than capable of doing so!
