Oleks Zinchenko has had a good season. He has started quite a few matches and has seemingly always proved Pep’s confidence in him by playing well to even great on occasion.

Speaking ahead of the UCL match with Gladbach, Zinchenko spoke abut the team's mentality, his form and much more.

Let’s dive in-

“Inside the dressing room, I can see the hungry eyes. Everyone is so hungry for the titles,” Zinchenko asserted.

“That is what we want. At this period, right now, I would say there is around two months left of the season. The most important two months in our careers.

“With the legends like Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho, who have been here 10 years, they deserve it. We are going to try.

“I have said of lot of times already, we are still playing all competitions and we want to try and win everything. That means we have to show our best in every performance.

“Is it possible to win everything? Yeah, of course. Bayern Munich showed last year, they won everything. Barcelona did it with Pep.

“Of course, everything is possible. We have got an unbelievable squad, the best players in the world. Why not?”

“At this stage, all teams are quite strong and have a lot of quality players. Especially if we are talking about Borussia Monchengladbach,”

“They organise well defensively. It is not easy to create chances against these kinds of teams. It is never easy at this stage.

“And, of course, at this stage of the Champions League it is always a tough game. That’s why we have to organise well and do our best.”

This UCL match could be the match that cements him at that left back spot for this UCL run. The m ore options we have, the better.
