Chelsea goalie, Robert Sanchez has insisted he is confident in his ability to help the club back to the top of European football.
The 25-year-old has had a topsy-turvy life at Stamford Bridge, since he sealed a move from Brighton ahead of the new campaign.
Costly mistakes against Arsenal and Brentford have led to some fans doubting Sanchez’s credentials to lead in goal for a top club like Chelsea, but the Spaniard says he has massive belief in himself and his teammates.
“My confidence is massive. I always trust in myself,” said the goalie in an interview, as quoted by NBC.
“I know my level and I know how good I am and how good the team is.”
He added: “We need time.
“It is a young team and we need time to get to know each other, build relationships and know strengths from different players. That is what we have been doing.
“You can see every game on the pitch we’ve been improving more and more and we are connecting and feeling good on the pitch now. We can only go higher.
“Every game we’re improving and I think some games we’ve been unlucky [but] I’m feeling good. It is similar to what I have always been doing. The boys give me the options and I try to find the spare man. That is what I have to do.”
Sanchez lost his place as Brighton’s first choice before his sale in the summer, but he hasn’t looked too bad in goal for Chelsea lately, so there’s hope that he can reach the highest heights for the Blues.
