Satire and Spirit

For Chelea, this victory became an extraordinary capital before undergoing two consecutive matches on the English League stage. One of the toughest opponents awaits, namely Manchester United, this weekend.
“We will take a short break, then concentrate on fighting again in the next match. We have to keep our feet on the ground, because the next game is very tough,” said Tuchel.
