Ivanovic excited about new season
Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic said that he is excited about the new season and believes that this will be one of the toughest ever. He said that many teams can challenge for the title and this will make it difficult for them. The best thing to do is to take each game as it comes and make sure that they get maximum points from them.
Branislav Ivanovic said that won the Premier League with Jose Mourinho and was also part of the team that under-performed last season. He has some good knowledge of how being overconfident can ruin a team performance. He said that it is better to wait for the start of the season and see how the other teams play.
Branislav Ivanovic said that each player has pledged to give their best on the pitch and believe that this can be the foundation for a successful season. With players retruning from Rio and joining the pre-season late, and more players to come in, the season is looking far from settled so far. I must confess that the inclusion of Oscar had me having a bet on Olympics for the first time ever!
As far as the Premier League is concerned, he said that it will be really challenging this season especially with the traditional big clubs investing massively in new players. He said that Leicester City will also be strong this season as they will not want to give up on their title without a fight.
Branislav Ivanovic has suffered an injury to his shoulder during the pre-season, but he has managed to return in the team since then. He said that he feels better and that he is excited for the new season as he has some unfinished business with Chelsea.
