Ahead of Mol Vidi’s visit to Stamford Bridge tonight in the Europa League, captain of the side Roland Juhasz has been talking tough.
Roland Juhasz has established himself as one of the few Hungarian players who has carved a niche for themselves in Europe outside the country’s domestic leagues.
It can be recalled that the defender was solid at the back for Belgian side RSC Anderlecht for almost a decade, playing alongside the likes of Kompany and Hannu Tihinen in defense.
He also played behind the likes of Lucas Biglia, Cheikhou Kouyate and Romelu Lukaku. He made nearly 300 appearances for Anderlecht, alongside 48 appearances in European competitions.
The player clearly has the experience and is confident he and his side can make it count against Sarri’s men on Thursday night.
“We didn’t come to London just to take pictures and admire our opponents with our mouths agape. I joined Vidi six years ago precisely because I believed that we could play in matches like this.”
He added that he had previously visited Stamford Bridge with Anderlecht 13 years ago.
“Thirteen years ago I was here with Anderlecht; a lot has changed since then. I was at the start of my career then, now I’m moving towards its end. I’m very happy that I can be here again. I signed with Vidi so that I could play in matches like this. Chelsea are the favorites for the match as well as one of the favorites to win the whole thing, so we can measure ourselves against them, to see how far along we are. We must not stop concentrating even for a second, or we could pay a big price. But we will enjoy every minute of this match.”
It appears Chelsea have a seemingly formidable opponent. We wait to see what transpires on the pitch tonight.
