Ahead of the huge Champions League semi-final first leg clash with Atletico, in Madrid, we`ve a few words from the opposition camp.

Their club captain Gabi, has tried to use Mourinho`s words about having no strikers to turnaround the situation, with Gabi remarking,

“They don`t play without a striker – do they?”

“It`s clear that Jose has weapons and uses them as he sees fit. He is one to evaluate his squad. But he has Fernando, he has Eto`o – he has several strikers.”


Gabi, keen to see Atletico progress to their first ever Champions League Final, has also spoken about the need to take a decent lead to Stamford Bridge, for the second leg, further adding,

“I don`t know about ability but we certainly have more desire and we have to try to exploit that. We have to take advantage of playing the first game at home, as it can prove decisive ahead of playing the return leg.”

“On Tuesday we can take a huge step towards the final – but we must produce on the pitch.”


If Atletico do produce then we could be in trouble but then again we, according to Gabi, do have some strikers do we not?
