Chelsea football manager believes in Champions League chances

17th March 2011 - Berko Tau

Chelsea football manager Carlo Ancelotti insists his team is strong enough to win the Champions League this season.

After seeing his side do everything but score in a goalless draw with FC Copenhagen - which saw the Blues progress 2-0 on aggregate - football manager Ancelotti expressed his pleasure with the performances.

The Italian insists that Chelsea must get better, but they are heading in the right direction and have every chance of winning the competition.

"If we play to 100 per cent, we can make the final stages. I see my team fresh and we're in a good moment. But we can improve a lot," he said.

When asked who he would like to face in the next round, football manager Ancelotti said he was willing to play whoever they are drawn with, although he concedes that Barcelona are the strongest team in the competition.

Chelsea return to Premier League football games on Sunday (March 20th) with a tough test against Roberto Mancini's Manchester City at Stamford Bridge.
