Galatasaray to take on Chelsea in Champions League

Posted on Feb 26 2014 | IANS

Ankara, Feb 26 : Turkish football club Galatasaray will clash with London team Chelsea in the first leg of the round of 16 UEFA Champions League match in Istanbul Wednesday night.

Chelsea's Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho said Tuesday that he would use his best players and go for a win at the Turk Telekom Arena, reports Xinhua.

Mourinho said it would be a strange feeling to encounter former player and Chelsea legend Didier Drogba as an opponent.

Galatasaray's Dutch playmaker Wesley Sneijder has said that they all know how important the Chelsea game is and highly respect Mourinho and their opponents.

Sneijder said he was friends with Mourinho, for whom he played at Italian club Inter Milan, off the pitch but will suspend that sentiment during Wednesday's game.
