Atletico boss believes any Chelsea player could get in any side in Europe

Atletico boss believes any Chelsea player could get in any side in Europe

Atletico Madrid vs Chelsea

Chelsea are set to get their European campaign back underway this evening.

The Blues dominated their Champions League group, which included Sevilla, Stade Rennais and Krasnodar.

As a result, Chelsea put themselves in a good position to be handed a favourable draw for the last-16.

However, the Londoners, in the end, were handed arguably the toughest possible draw of the sides to have topped their groups, against Spanish outfit Atletico Madrid.

Atletico are enjoying a superb campaign, and currently sit top of La Liga, having lost just twice all season.

The first meeting between the two sides will take place in Bucharest.

Simeone heaps praise on Chelsea

Ahead of tonight’s clash, meanwhile, Diego Simeone has been heaping praise on Chelsea.

He is of course one of the most successful managers in Atletico’s history, so any compliment paid by the Argentine should be taken as high praise.

And, when drawn on his side’s upcoming opponents during a pre-match interview, Simeone went on to voice the opinion that any of the Blues’ players could get into any side in Europe.

The Atleti boss also spoke briefly about Thomas Tuchel, suggesting that the German has made a strong impression at Stamford Bridge thus far:

“It’s a strong club, financially. Since last year, they have spent enormously.

“The coach is important and he has made a strong impression. It’s a young and good squad and they invest in young players.

“They changed the coach when they didn’t see the investments were improving (the squad). Tuchel has a strong team and they have improved statistically.

“Just look at the goalkeepers, the strikers … any player could play in any team in Europe.”
