Chelsea Manager, Thomas Tuchel recalls horrific team bus terror attack that occured while he was coach of Dortmund

Chelsea manager Thomas Thuchel has revealed why he can approach such a heavy test of nerve and character - the UEFA Champions League - with a measured sense of calm.

Eventually he was caught and Tuchel insists an event that should have left him mentally scarred barely registers in his thoughts nowadays. Recalling...

“Nicolas Pepe Has Put Fear Into Arsenal Rivals” – Kanu Nwankwo

Arsenal Legend Kanu Nwankwo believes summer signing Nicolas Pepe has also put fear into the club's rivals, MySportDab reports. The Ivory Coast international arrived at the Emirates during the summer, signing from Ligue 1 side Lille in a club-record £72 million ($89m) deal. And the 24-year-old winger has already proved to be a real handful in his early appearances for the Gunners, averaging 3.8 dribbles per game, more than any other attacker in the English top flight. He also became the first player in 50 Premier League matches to dribble past Virgil van Dijk when he skipped past the Liverpool centre-back during his full debut at Anfield. So it’s been a good start to life in north London for Pepe, who started alongside Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for th...
