​Porto legend Futre disgusted by claims Chelsea celebrated Champions League draw

Porto legend Paulo Futre is furious at reports of Chelsea players being happy at drawing the Portuguese club in the Champions League.

The two teams will face off over a two legged quarter final after the international break.

Porto defeated Juventus in the round of 16 to book a place in the draw.

And club legend Futre believes the team deserves more respect and hopes the Porto players will use these reports as inspiration for the two games.

He said on CMTV, via Sport Witness: "Chelsea players celebrated when they heard that they had drawn Porto.

"How did I know? It's in the English press and I called later to confirm.

"Porto players have to run like never before in these two games. Do you know why? They think they have already won the tie. They celebrated.

"When I spoke to the person I was disgusted and I would give anything to play against Chelsea.

"FC Porto players have to die on the pitch, they think they are already in the semi-finals. They celebrated in the morning when they saw they got FC Porto. They can get through, but they have to sweat blood."
