Chelsea Chief Peter Kenyon Happy Facing no English Clubs in the Quarter Final

Chelsea would face Turkish Champion Fenerbahce in the quarter final of Champions League this season. Today, the draw of the quarter final round of the tournament was held in Switzerland. Apparently, Chelsea has picked up the easiest opponent compared to other teams.

That is why, it is natural that the club officials and fans would be happy to be facing against Fenerbahce in the last eight of the Champions League. Chelsea chief executive, Peter Kenyon, has been delighted to have avoided any of the three English sides. However, Chelsea chief wants to give enough respect to the Turkish side. Regarding Turkey’s fan made problem, Kenyon said it was past.

Daily Mail reported:

"I think that's gone," he said. "It's the first time we've ever played Fenerbahce so there's no history between the two clubs and I think everyone will be looking forward to a good quarter-final."

Of Chelsea's opponents, Kenyon said: "You've got to give them a lot of respect.

"There's no such thing as an easy team or an easy game at this level."

Chelsea was not at their best this season neither in Premier League not in Champions League. The London based club projected disappointing performance in Carling Cup and FA Cup, being defeated to minor teams. They are currently at the third of premier league. So, Champions League is a big chance for the Blues to win silverware this season. Now, they have got Fenerbahce. So, it seems to be a bit easier for Chelsea to get the ticket of semi final. Now, let us see if Chelsea could win a place in the semi final, where they would have to face the winner of the Arsenal vs Liverpool match.
