15 March 2013 17:05

Fenerbahce forward Dirk Kuyt was relieved to avoid Chelsea and Tottenham in the draw for the Europa League quarter-finals.

The Turkish side were drawn against Lazio on Friday, while Tottenham and Chelsea were paired up against Basel and Rubin Kazan respectively.

Kuyt lauded the Italian side as a 'great team', but admitted he was glad to have avoided English Premier League opposition.

"All the teams that are in the quarter-finals are hard to beat but we've avoided the teams like Chelsea and Tottenham," Kuyt told NTVSpor.

"We're eagerly anticipating the clash against Lazio. We're really excited as a team. Lazio is a great team. It's going to be a tough tie but we'll do our best to reach the Europa League final."

Fenerbahce are four points behind rivals Galatasaray in second place in the Turkish Super Lig, while they also finished runners-up last season.
