Chelsea will take on Real Madrid, the defending champions and the team they lost to at the same stage last year, in the Champions League quarter-finals. How does the most expensive player in Premier League history, Enzo Fernandez, feel about the match?
Since the summer, Enzo Fernández has been living in a dream from which he has not yet awakened. He only transferred to Benfica Lisbon before the current season, where he played a decent autumn and went to the World Cup with Argentina.
There he became a World Champion, and a few weeks later Chelsea bought him out and made him the most expensive player in Premier League history.
Now he’s off to the Santiago Bernabéu to face Real Madrid in the Champions League quarterfinals, and coach and club legend Frank Lampard will say of him in a press conference that he’s a leader and a future Chelsea star.
“I thank the coach for those words. I always dreamed of being a leader at a big club. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve tried to set an example and always be there for my teammates. When you hear from Frank that I am a leader at such a young age, it fills me with pride, ” the 22-year-old midfielder beamed.
However, he faces an extremely difficult task on Wednesday night. He will have to guard Toni Kroos in the middle of the park with Luka Modric, the architect of Real Madrid’s last successful decade.
“It’s a team with big players, but we trust ourselves. But Luka Modric and Toni Kroos are amazing players who have won everything and are an inspiration to everyone,” Enzo said.
“But fear? We are definitely not afraid. We have respect for them because this is a football match and we know the quality of Real Madrid, but we are definitely not afraid,” Enzo encouraged the Blues.
