He said “Probably Chelsea can only think about that [the FA Cup] because I think they are champions and they have nothing else to fight for. The FA Cup is something I believe is important for them. I have to play St-Etienne [on Wednesday], I have to play the [League Cup] final, I have to play hopefully another opponent in the Europa League.”
“I have to fight for a top-four position in the Premier League. I have so many things to think about. The match is in one month’s time. I don’t want to be speaking about it.”
