Chelsea clash holds no fear for Simeone

25 August 2012 13:07

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone believes his team can trouble Champions League holders Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup on Friday.

Chelsea have strengthened their squad by signing Oscar, Eden Hazard, Cesar Azpilicueta and Victor Moses in the close season, but Simeone feels they are by no means better than Atletico.

"People may think Chelsea are superior because they won the Champions League, but when there is only one match to play we all know that everything becomes more difficult," he told the UEFA website.

"We don't have anything to prove. It is a match between two teams that have won two different cups - and we are very proud of the cup we won.

"We know the Super Cup match is beautiful, but we focus on every single match. We know how important it is.

"After having won the Europa League, and now facing the Champions League winners, we are in a nice place. I hope we can enjoy it."
