Dynamo Kyiv head coach Segei Rebrov seemed indifferent to Mourinho’s woes, as he said he prefers to focus on the match against the English side.
The constant questions regarding Chelsea FC manager Jose Mourinho, during the pre-match press conference, seems to have struck a nerve with Dynamo Kyiv head coach Sergei Rebrov, as he rebuffed further questions and focused on his own team.
The former Tottenham Hotspur player seemed pretty indifferent to Mourinhoa s condition. While acknowledging that it could happen to anyone, he seemed determined to not let the furore regarding Jose Mourinho affect his gameplan, as he aims for nothing less than three points, despite the upcoming match being an away fixture, as per . Sky Sports.
“It’s a little bit funny, ridiculous that I have to constantly answer the questions about Mourinho. Fifty percent of questions are about Mourinho. We really shouldn’t be thinking about what’s happening with Chelsea at the moment What is happening with them now can happen to anyone.
a We need to focus on our game and not to think whether it’s a wounded animal or not. We didn’t think about that in Kiev and we won’t tomorrow. We wish Chelsea to do very well in the Premier League but not tomorrow.”
Rebrov, who sees an opportunity in Chelsea FCa s poor form, is determined to make Dynamo Kyiv qualify for the knockout stages, as well as help the club snatch the title of best club in Ukraine from Shaktar Donetsk.
“Of course we will not be happy with a draw. We weren’t happy with the draw in Kiev. We’ll play to win this game tomorrow and you’ll see Dynamo attacking. The main thing is not only to attack and to win, but to play as a team.”
Dynamoa s Chance for the Knockout Stages
Dynamo Kyiv have a realistic chance to qualify for the knockout stages, as Chelsea FCa s loss to FC Porto on matchday 2 blew open the group. Dynamo currently lie in second place with 5 points, while Chelsea FC after an opening day 4-0 win over Maccabi Tel-Aviv FC, lie in third place with one draw and one loss. A victory for either side will go a long way in helping to decide which team would progress into the knockout stages.
Rebrova s plan to go for three points may seem foolish considering he has a one-point advantage over Chelsea FC, but attack is the best form of defence, and Chelsea may find their rhythm back any time.
