Nordsjaelland defender Okore: Chelsea are my favourite team

Imposing Nordsjaelland defender Jores Okore has revealed that Chelsea are his favourite team and admits he would love to one day join the club.

The 20-year old Ivory Coast-born Denmark international was impressive for the Danish champions in their 4-0 Champions League home loss to the Blues last night and says it is a dream of his to play for the European title-holders.

"I was not fazed by their stature. When the game is on, I only see humans like you and me," Okore told Sky Sports.

"Of course they are a great team, which they showed, but I was just focusing on my assignments and, to be fair, I think I did pretty well.

"Hopefully I proved I have what it takes to play in a competition like the Premier League, which is one of the best leagues in the world. So hopefully I can play in England someday.

"Chelsea are my favourite team and I would love to play for them in the future. Every player dreams of playing for Chelsea and I am no exception."
