Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho insists that Steaua Bucuresti are a threat in their Champions League group ahead of tonight's match in Romania.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has claimed that Steaua Bucuresti will have a big say in their Champions League group ahead of tonight's match in Romania.
The Blues defeated Steaua in the last 16 of the Europa League last season on their way to winning the tournament.
Despite that triumph, Mourinho believes that the Romanian outfit have the potential to progress from Group E this year.
"This season [my players] know they are going to play against a good team," he told the club's official website. "For sure [Steaua] will get points and they will have something to say in the group."
Chelsea lost their opening match of this season's Champions League to Basel, while Steaua were beaten by Schalke 04.
