French player Christopher Nkunku who plays at Chelsea FC is back from injury, and gave his quota in Chelsea’s 4–1 defeat to Liverpool by scoring the Blues’ only goal. His desire among other things now is to stay fit.
The attacking midfielder whose versatility on the pitch is quite beautiful spoke a little on his team’s defeat at Anfield and his wishes for the squad.
‘I came back from a big injury on my knee and after I had a little injury to my hip, but that’s normal after a long injury,’ he said to Chelseafc.com in the post-match interview.
‘I just want to stay fit, to continue to perform and help the team. Of course, it is positive to score for a striker, but I think this is not the main point tonight.
‘I need to take it step-by-step because I don’t want another injury. I need to take care of myself also, but for sure I want to help the team and play as many games as I can.’
Concerning Chelsea’s mood in the wake of the game, Nkunku said,
‘We feel sad because we lost a game which we wanted to win.
‘To concede three goals and to come back is very difficult. I think we need to work more and come back stronger for our game on Sunday.
‘I think we need to work on everything. We need to put more in every moment of the game. We need to push hard with our intensity.
‘I think even in our character, we need to do more on the pitch to win the game. We know the stadium is difficult to play in, but we can do a lot more.’
Chelsea’s head coach Mauricio Pochettino said recently that the team needed to have more confidence during away games.See Dollar(USD) to Naira Black Market Exchange Rate Today!
