Manchester United football manager says Chelsea are 'obsessed'

12th April 2011 - Sigvard Magnus

Manchester United football manager Sir Alex Ferguson believes that Chelsea are "obsessed" with winning the Champions League.

The two sides meet in the quarter-final second leg of the competition tonight (April 12th), with United holding a 1-0 advantage from the first game at Stamford Bridge.

Since Roman Abramovich took over at Chelsea in 2003, the Blues have reached four semi-finals and one final in the Champions League, but never won the competition.

Sir Alex Ferguson believes that Chelsea are now obsessed with winning the cup, and this could harm their chances,
.
"I can understand it because I had the obsession myself for quite a while. I lost semi-finals and you say to yourself you are never going to do it," he said.

Sir Alex Ferguson has won the competition twice with Manchester United - the first time in 1999 against Bayern Munich in Barcelona, before beating Chelsea in Moscow in 2008.
