Ivanovic is certain the next season will be the toughest one yet

Branislav Ivanovic has helped Chelsea on winning 2 Premier League titles, back during the 2009-10 and the 2014-15 season.

The Serbian defender knows a thing or two about lifting the English piece of silverware and the experienced player has recently stated that the upcoming 2016-17 season of the Premier League will be the toughest one that he will ever play with Chelsea and he has warned the rest of his teammates about what lies ahead.

‘’This could definitely be the toughest Premier League ever. Every team is strengthening and every team, after last season when Leicester won, want to be better and be the new surprise. Of course, the big teams want to be good again. So it’s going to be very exciting. So we just have to go step by step and game by game and every game will be a different story for us’’ Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic said.

The Serbian defender has recently completed the recovery from an injury that he picked up during a match against Wolfsberger AC. Ivanovic sustained a shoulder injury in this game but he has returned to action and he is hoping to avoid another physical problem as his desire is to be fully fit before the upcoming season of the Premier League kicks off in full force.

The arrivals of the highly rated and recognized managers: Pep Guardiola, Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho will bring more excitement to the Premier League but at the same time it is going to turn the top tier English League into a higher quality league with better teams and it’s also going to make winning the actual tournament much more difficult and this is why Branislav Ivanovic is saying that it will be the toughest season yet.
