Ahead of Chelsea’s upcoming Champions League clash with Juventus, the former Blues striker discussed the match as well as pointing similarities between Federico Chiesa and his father, Enrico.

Asked if he could pick a side to play for in this 

Wednesday Champions League clash between Chelsea and Juventus

Hernan Crespo 

told 

Sportweek

:  

“Chelsea, for a matter of respect for my history as a footballer. I joined Chelsea twice during my career. I won the Premier League and the Community Shield in 2006. I could only pick the Blues.

“I always scored important goals against Juventus, so he’d be ok to have them as opponents.”

“I don’t know exactly the situation of the two teams, even if I follow all the games here in Brazil,” the former striker continued.

“I saw their opening Champions League games and both snatched convincing wins. They are super favourite to go beyond the group stage, but it’s tough to predict the result.”

 

Wearing the shirts of Parma, Lazio, Milan, Inter, and Genoa during his playing career, the current coach of Sao Paulo scored 153 goals in 340 appearances in Serie A.

Crespo 

played alongside Juve’s 

Federico Chiesa’s 

father, Enrico, at Parma, and went on to compare the duo.

“Federico is as fast as his dad and he has the same selfishness, which is crucial for a striker,” 

he said.

“He must learn how to be more effective. He doesn’t need to score at every shot, but at least once every two attempts.”

 

On Chelsea striker, 

Romelu Lukaku

Crespo 

added: 

“He drags defenders behind him and opens spaces for his teammates. He scores and helps his team. Lukaku is a fantastic striker.”
