Gerhard: We can beat anyone
24th October 2013
Gerhard Tremmel says Swansea can beat anyone on their day, but warns they cannot afford to have an 'off day' in the Europa League.
Michael Laudrup's side go in search of their third successive group stage win on Thursday as they welcome Kuban Krasnodar to the Liberty Stadium.
So far the Swans have recorded maximum points from their first two Group A matches, with victories away at Valencia and home to St. Gallen.
Meanwhile, Kuban have endured a difficult start to their campaign after suffering defeats to St. Gallen and Valencia.
"No matter who you face in the Europa League, no matter what league they're from, they will always be competitive," Tremmel told Jack Magazine in an exclusive interview.
"If we play at our highest level we can beat anyone, but if we have a bad day we can lose to anyone.
"If we start thinking: 'we are the Premier League team, so we should beat teams from smaller leagues', then we are wrong.
"You have to approach every game with the same intensity and passion. We could see against St. Gallen that they are a good team, despite coming from a small league."
