Porto Legend Paulo Futre has aired his anger after confirming that Chelsea players celebrated drawing against the Portuguese club, MySportDab Reports.
The Blues will be going up against FC Porto in the next round of the UCL which the draws was held a few days ago and it was reported that the players of the English side celebrated.
Porto legend Paulo Futre says he was left “disgusted” by Chelsea’s reaction to the Champions League quarter-final draw which he supposedly confirmed they did celebrated drawing against them.
The Blues have been paired with Portuguese giants in the last-eight of elite European competition which Thomas Tuchel’s side have been accused of celebrating that fact.
The Premier League heavyweights seemingly convinced that they will be edging one step closer to continental glory if they are able to see off the Portuguese side over the two legged encounter.
Paulo Futre has aired his frustration at Chelsea for writing off Porto, especially as they crashed out the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Juventus in the last-16.
The Club legend has urged Sergio Conceicao’s side to prove another point to those that continue to doubt them and beat Chelsea.
He has told CMTV:
“Chelsea players celebrated when they heard that they had drawn Porto – “How did I know? It’s in the English press and I called later to confirm.
“FC Porto players have to run like never before in these two games. Do you know why? Because Chelsea think they have already won the tie. They celebrated!
“When I spoke to the source I was disgusted and I would give anything to play against Chelsea.
“FC Porto players now have to give their all on the thinks, because Chelsea thinks they are already in the semi-finals.
They celebrated in the morning when they saw they got FC Porto.
“Porto can get through, but they have to sweat blood.”
Chelsea will also be looking to make sure they get the job done after beating Atletico Madrid home and away to qualify with a 3-0 aggregate.
Porto will play host to Chelsea in the first leg of their quarter-final showdown on April 7 while a trip to Stamford Bridge for the return leg will then be played in six days later.
