Bayern Munich chief Salihamidžić: We must not look beyond Chelsea

Bayern Munich sports chief Hasan Salihamidžić insists they won't look beyond next Champions League opponents Chelsea.

Bayern hold a 3-0 lead going into the second-leg of their round 16 tie - with a quarterfinal against the winner of Napoli-Barcelona ahead of them.

But Salihamidžić says, "I think we are all right to focus only on our next task, Chelsea. This is the obstacle we have to face, only after we will deal with the teams that can come.

"It is already clear that the matches won't be easier. For us, now the mind is only on Chelsea. We must prepare for this match with confidence, of course, but we certainly won't underestimate Chelsea."
