The Red Devils play Saturday (14h) in the stadium of Spartak Moscow in their second world cup groepsmatch against Tunisia. The press conference of Axel Witsel was pretty chaotic. The simultaneous translation in the Spartakstadion let down which the foreigners, the French of Whitewash could not understand, one micro didn’t work and in the end fell suddenly off the light. “It is an intensive race,” commented he.
Whitewash is to be wary of the Tunisians, and expects a real battle. “The Tunisians take a lot of risks,” he said. “It is a strong team, physically very strong. It is certainly no easy race.”
The 29-year-old midfielder also came back on the 3-0 victory against Panama in the first team contest. “It could have been better against Panama, but there are no easy matches at the world cup,” said Witsel. “Every match is difficult. Saturday we should just re-do everything for the victory to deal with it.”
According to Witsel played the experience of the Red Devils an important role against Panama. “We have more experience than four years ago. It was a closed contest, but thanks to our experience, we remained calm and we eventually managed to score three goals to score. We have started very well in the world cup.”
Witsel know not yet who tomorrow plays. “We can make the arrangement not yet, the coach gives his eleven is always the day itself”, he concluded.
