Gullit rules out Chelsea Champions League challenge

Tuesday 20 November 2012

Ahead of Chelsea's almost vital away clash with Juventus tonight, former Blues player and manager Ruud Gullit has claimed the club cannot win the Champions League this year.

Chelsea go into tonight's game at the Juventus Stadium top of Group E, level on points with second place Shakhtar, and one point ahead of Juventus in third.


However defeat against Juve could put the Blues into third, and would leave Di Matteo's men reliant on a draw between Shatktar and Juventus in the final game, assuming Chelsea beat Nordsjaelland.


Gullit feels that despite sitting top of their group, Chelsea cannot challenge for Europe's top prize this season.


“Chelsea winning it last year was a surprise, I don’t think they can do it again," Gullit told the Mirror.


“They are trying to change the way they play and are having mixed results, so they will have to work very hard to reach the latter stages again.”


Chelsea have recorded just two victories in their last seven outings, against Man Utd in the League Cup, and over Shakhtar in the last Champions League outing.


They come into the clash on the back of a 2-1 defeat to West Brom on Saturday, a match which prompted angry exchanges in the Blues dressing-room after the game.
