Champions League veteran believes his dream of beating Chelsea, but admits “that Chelsea have great players”

Porto defender Pepe has set his sights on knocking Chelsea out and going all the way in the Champions League this season.

Pepe has won the competition three times in his career, all with Real Madrid, and believes he can add a fourth crown with Porto.

Porto stunned Italian champions Juventus in the last round and now Pepe is dreaming of winning the Champions League this season, report the Evening Standard.

“If I didn’t believe it, I wouldn’t wake up every day to come and train at Olival (Porto’s training ground) with the passion I have for football,” said Pepe.

“I always believe that it is possible to win the Champions League with FC Porto.

“The credit is due to our coach who makes us the first to believe his ideas. Today there are no easy games and there is a lot of evidence for that.

“Believing in our work and strictly following what the coach asks of us, we always have many possibilities to win games and to overcome challenges like this.

“Chelsea have a squad that is valued at almost 700 million euros, but that doesn’t matter. We all know that Chelsea have great players, but we have prepared the game well and we will see what happens in the 90 minutes.

“In football there are no certainties, but I hope that we can be well and be the team that we got used to by our coach and our fans.”
