MSK Zilina skipper Robert Jez aiming to 'go down in history' against Chelsea

Slovakians eye legendary status...
MSK Zilina captain Robert Jez is relishing his side's Champions League tussle with Chelsea this week and is looking for the club to make more history.

The 29-year-old believes that the Slovakian title holders have already enhanced their reputation with their campaign so far and are now eyeing the chance to become legends.

"Qualifying meant a lot, not only for the club but also for the town," said Jez, according to Uefa's official website.

"This success put us on the football map. It's extraordinary. Of course, everyone knows Zilina are a small club.

"The progress we've made in the Champions League is a great success for us. I'm very proud of my players. This will go down in the club's history.

"To play in England will be a massive experience. All of us are really looking forward to playing at Chelsea."

MSK's Czech coach Pavel Hapal is also looking forward to pitting his wits against Chelsea coach Carlo Ancelotti, and believes that with a touch of "bravery and cheekiness" a victory is possible for his side.

"He's a great coach and coaches one of the best teams in the world," said Hapal.

"It's a great challenge for me and I'm really looking forward to it. On the other hand, we won't sell ourselves short. We want to show our supporters quality football and we'd like to get some points from our meeting with Chelsea.

"We obviously respect our opponents; they're a really big club.

"Chelsea are obviously superior to us, but football is about 11 players playing against 11 players and we want to walk off with our heads high after the match."
