Chelsea have pedigree in this competition, given recent results how important is this?
It is one of our objectives in the season. We need to think it is one opportunity to win a trophy. Of course maybe the feelings aren't the best after defeat on Sunday but it's about giving the players the confidence and the trust to change our mood.

We are playing well, we have too many good things, very positive things, it's only that we are not clinical in front of the goal.

Bruno Saltor has departed?
I think it's a decision between the club and Bruno. It's a situation where he didn't belong to my coaching staff and then I think it's the best decision for sure for him and for the club.
