No emotions, no pressure: Before the Chelsea and Crystal Palace match, a star for Chelsea gives Graham Potter a strong message.

Chelsea’s Armando Broja said he doesn’t feel any pressure while performing on the field ahead of Chelsea’s upcoming match against Crystal Palace.

But after spending last season on loan at Southampton, the Albanian international returned to Stamford Bridge. Broja was the sole known center forward for the Blues at one time during the season when Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku left the team.

On transfer deadline day, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang joined from Barcelona, making Broja the back-up striker.

While pressure is a big part of modern football, the Albanian, who was born in England, doesn’t feel any of it when he’s on the field. Broja stated to Gazeta Tema, an albanian news source (via sportwitness):

“I don’t feel any pressure since I play football, which I have done since I was three years old. I am emotionless. Play for enjoyment, competition, and team benefit. Absolutely no pressure exists. Always in good shape. I work out every day.

“We are aware that playing for Southampton is easier than making the Chelsea team. I do work out every day while I’m in Albania. I’m in good shape physically.

For Southampton past season, Broja played 38 games, scoring nine goals and adding one assist. The striker has only played 124 minutes across all competitions in six games since his return to Chelsea, though.

Graham Potter is anticipated to start Aubameyang as his primary striker. It will be intriguing to see what kind of role Broja plays for the Blues as a result.
