Notice Blanc is supposedly wanted by Roman. Just paper talk probably but an interesting shout imo.
I think way too much has been made of it. Everybody at Chelsea has given Benfica the upmost respect in every interview given so far, Drogba and Luiz have spoken about the little jig and it was in response to the prospect of a semi-final with Barcelona.
After everything Chelsea have been through with Barcelona over the last 8 years, we have a rivalry, there is bad blood and unfinished business after the famous 4 penalty incidents at the same stage in 2009. The players still think about the injustice of that game and it hurts, it was an even lower feeling than losing the final the year before for me personally. To have the opportunity to potentially go up against Barcelona and a chance of redemption, it's an understandable reaction.
