Michael Ballack has voiced his disappointment at his surprise omission from Chelsea´s Champions League squad.

The Germany captain is currently recovering from ankle surgery and does not figure in his club´s 23-man party for the group stages of the competition and Chelsea insist they took the decision because they could not guarantee Ballack would be fit for the majority of their six group matches.

Ballack, speaking in a video interview on the German federation´s official website, said: "I am disappointed. But I have to accept it and focus on getting healthy again. Then I can make up my mind about other things."
