Apoel Nicosia midfielder Nuno Morais is backing former club Chelsea to adjust to their FIFA transfer ban.

Chelsea are unable to sign any players until January 2011 after being found guilty by FIFA of inducing Gael Kakuta to break his contract with Lens in 2007.

They are appealing but Morais believes the club will use this as a chance to develop more of their own talent.

He said: "I think they will create more players, rather than spending money."
