Despite recent terror attacks such as the one in Paris, and unrest in Israel, Chelsea will still be making the trip to Israel for their Champion’s League clash.
Jose Mourinho stated that his players were without any fears and were just eager to play. He went on to state that one player will even leave his pregnant wife who is due to give birth just to play.
Mourinho had an informal conversation with many of his players to see their thoughts on the trip.
“It’s not the same to go and play in Israel as it is to go and play in Stoke or Newcastle. The feeling is obviously different, but I got from them the sense of responsibility and of course everybody travelled. Nobody even tried not to go.”
The Chelsea side will fly in early to acclimatise due to a long flight.
