Yakin proud as Basel knock off Chelsea

Murat Yakin was left with a great sense of pride as his FC Basel side defeated Chelsea 2-1 in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

Mohamed Salah and Marco Streller scored second-half goals for the Swiss champions after Oscar gave the Blues a half-time lead at Stamford Bridge and the Basel boss was absolutely thrilled with the performance of his players.

"For us, it's a great honour to win here," he said.

"We can enjoy the moment. It's not every day you can come from behind and win at Chelsea.

"Of course it's a great achievement. (But) this is one game, we've got five games ahead of us.

"There's a lot ahead of us still."
