Chieti Story: Pre-Season 2018 – 2019 Report
Hello friends and welcome to a new episode of my Chieti story, one that will hopefully mark the beginning of a really successful season for the squad.
Basically, all I can say is that my transfer policy this season was pretty strange: I first had to make sure that some of our top players who were co-owned (like Yildirim, Schaefer and so on) stay at the club, so I had to spend 4 million to make sure that happens – and they still counted as 6 new transfers, when things were different:
I have decided to get rid of quite some players I no longer considered needed, like Castellani who was disappointing, goalkeeper Vana, but also Florian Cuntz who didn’t seem ready to rise up to the challenge.
And I also signed an Italian legend – not because I wanted to, but because I was forced later on by the game when I ended up needing one extra midfielder because of injuries: 35 year old Daniele De Rossi who still looks good despite his age:
The group stage draw seems also very accessible and at least a 3rd spot should be guaranteed to us, even though I really have higher hopes this season and I actually dream of getting to the next round of the Champions League:

And this is it, the tough part only now begins, let’s hope that it will be all good!
