“You’re talking about individual players but I would like to point out the importance of the system in general, they are like a German machine, well-oiled,” Zenit head coach Semak said at a press conference ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League clash, as quoted by Sky Sports.
“Every person on the pitch knows what to do and how to do it. So I would like to refrain from talking about individual qualities, and concentrate more on Chelsea as a team.”
It’s nice to see a rival coach complimenting Thomas Tuchel’s work at Chelsea — the German has significantly improved the Blues after replacing Frank Lampard in January this year.
Chelsea travel to St Petersburg on Wednesday, the game gets underway at 17:45 UK time.
The Blues will play for the top spot as they need a win to guarantee they qualify from their Champions League group from the first place.
