Chelsea boss Scolari not bothered by Champions League debut

Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari has shrugged off the prospect of making his Champions League debut this week against Bordeaux.

He said: "The pressure for me and the players is not only for the Champions League. It is for the FA Cup, the Carling Cup and the Premier League - we want to win all of the games.

"For me, the Champions League is not more important than the Carling Cup.

"It is important but it is not more important than a league game.

"We need to think game by game. If I say the Champions League is the most important then my players will ask why they need to bother in the other games.

"I respect the Champions League but all games are important. If you think a game is not important you will lose it before it starts."
