Live on March 11th, before the match against leicester city, Chelsea coach Porter was asked which is more important, the Champions League or the League. In this regard, he said that he is more inclined to focus only on the next game.
Porter replied: "I understand this problem, but it almost belongs to the category of’ being wise after the fact’. I prefer to focus only on the next game, focusing on leicester city, focusing on how we won that game and how to keep things going. If you think too much, you will tie yourself down. In the end, what we need is to keep it simple, focus on the next game and strive for victory. "
"Historically, the club has won the Champions League, and some players in the dressing room have done the same. Some people have left, some people have experienced injuries and we have new players. We have a transition period between these two windows, and many things have happened, so maybe we haven’t reached that level in terms of stable performance level and getting the results we want. "
"But on any given day, I think it’s fair to say that we can compete with any team in the Premier League, but what we need is to do it more frequently. Two victories make things easy, but against leicester city we must start again, we must maintain the momentum and continue to build a positive feeling after the game against Dortmund. "
"It will be a tough game against leicester city. They are fighting for points. They also want to win and have been doing their best. Unfortunately, the previous results are not what we want. Stress will make things more challenging, but we need to move on. Before the game against Leeds United, I said that we saw a lot of positive things on the training ground, and what we need is to transfer it to the game. "
"Sometimes, this is a process. You need to go through some difficult times, but the ability of the players is certain. This is about how we do it collectively, and how we can find the best way to achieve stable performance and results. This is a wonderful week, but we need another wonderful performance and result to end this week, and the best way to convince people that you are on the right path is to win, which is also true for players. "
