Steaua Bucharest goalkeeper Ciprian Tatarusanu has rubbished the quality of Europa League opponents Chelsea and Premier League football.

Steaua showed their quality by knocking out Ajax, who finished above Manchester City in their Champions League group earlier in the season, in the previous round of the competition.

"I have noticed something interesting," he said. "Even though the Premier League has some of the most skillful players in the world, the teams still base their game on free-kicks and corners.

"These create enormous excitement among English fans - foreign supporters watching matches in the UK will notice how corners prompt celebrations in the stands."
