The UEFA champions league games continue tonight and one of the day’s attractions will be in London where Chelsea takes on Milan AC. Chelsea can rely on Pierre Aubameyang ahead of tonight’s clash after the Gabonese striker got his first goal in the Blues shirt over the weekend. True he is yet to score at home but this definitely is an opportunity for the former Arsenal striker. His head coach Graham Potter speaks to the press ahead of the game.
Chelsea hosts Milan for one of the clashes of the 3rd day of the Champions League. Graham Potter, the Blues' new coach, will be able to count on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. This could not have happened because the Gabonese had suffered a terrible attack at home in Barcelona before arriving in London. The technician also wanted to salute the courage of his player.
"We are here to support but I think the best thing for him is to play soccer, put the incident behind him as soon as possible and feel comfortable and happy. I think he feels that here. He acted very professionally, we were really impressed with him," said Graham Potter to the press.
The former Brighton manager regrets, however, the insecurity that increasingly prevails. "The feeling that we are no longer safe in our own home is difficult to understand, and to describe, but as a family we will overcome this and stand stronger than ever," stressing furthermore that it was normal for Aubameyang to be stunned, since "He would not be human if it did not affect him."
